Don't know what auto zone did, but obviously
didn't diagnose or resolve the issue

Start over at a shop that you hopefully have used
with sucess for years

You need wirng diagrams to see what the system
looks like, to start on that issue

SOURCE: check charging system

Do you have gauges on this car also?
If so, you may have a problem with what is called a "current shunt" resistor. This will prevent the car from recharging the battery....accordianman

SOURCE: Battery dosn't charge, alternator/voltage adapter test's good.

Did you test the Alternator on or off the truck? It might be a problem with the control system to the Alternator. The regulator need a battery feed to work, It is usually ran through an alternator fuse.

SOURCE: 2003 Ford Focus battery light is on, but alternator appears good

Disconnect battery ground for 30 seconds & reconnect. Light should be out unless you have deeper diagnostic problem. Charging system good Battery good. This action should reset trouble light. Good luck!

Alternator is not charging. I would remove it and have it tested. AutoZone would test for free.

My battery light went on, on. My 2003 GMC ENVOY, the message board said "battery not charging" .....I took it to autozone and they said I had a bad alternator which is why it would say battery not...

The charging system on your vehicle is Computer controlled . called ( smart charging system )
The IPC illuminates the battery not charging indicator in the driver information center when the following occurs:
• The PCM detects that the generator output is less than 11 volts or greater than 16 volts. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM requesting illumination.
• The IPC determines that the system voltage is less than 11 volts or greater than 16 volts. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the body control module (BCM) indicating the system voltage.

Charging system is not working i thought i have tried everything .maybe i missed something

you actually trust the supposedly knowledgeable "part guys" at your local autozone regarding automotive repair. hmm. well my answer to you is take it to someone or a shop and have them load test your alternator and see if its putting out the sufficient amperage and voltage. make sure you get a good battery, and not of those cheap ones from autozone. i recommend interstate batteries or optima batteries.

The charging system on your vehicle is controlled by the PCM powertrain control module . The PCM will send a message to the instument cluster on the class 2 serial data network to turn on the charging light if it see's or think;s there is a problem with the charging system . Should have a code stored . Have autozone check for codes.

A battery light came, on and it stated check charging system what does this mean?

This light means that most likely your alternator has stopped functioning, and your battery is no longer being charged. Typically this means that your alternator needs to be replaced.

My battery keeps diying on my cutlass. this will be the third battery in a month. what is killing my battery?

could be anything take it to Autozone and have them test the altanator and regulator with one battery cable off and with a test light put one end on battery post and one to the cable if the light comes on you have a short somewhere or a light on in the trunk or glove box. But the charging system has to be tested and the battery cables have to be tested for resistance.

My alternator went bad and so i had it replaced. then the battery light came on again. I replaced the battery brand new and the light is still flickering. Whats the problem now?

the battery light has nothing to do with the battery, it indicates that the charging system (which is the alternator) is not producing enough power to cancel the light in the dash, have Autozone or Kragen test the charging system again, the rebuilt alternator may be defective that u just installed or a connector to it has a bad connection.
