SOURCE: battery charge light comes on a few minutes after car starts

Couple of things to check, first this may be nothing more than a belt that has loosened or stretched after the install.There should only be about a quarter of an inch stretch in the belt between pulleys. Caution - only check with engine stopped!!! The alternator causes a strong resistance when it is producing electric power, so slippage is to be checked first. Second, if the battery light comes on and off; it maybe acting in error. Get a multi-meter and check the battery voltage with car and ignition shut off. With the meter set on 12volt bat, place the black probe on the negative side of battery or ground and the red probe on the positive side of battery. If you get a reading of 12.66 v the battery is being charged and is full. If you get 12.45 you have a 50% charged battery. If less the alternator wiring needs further checking into as there maybe issues with wiring or the alternator itself. Hope this helps.

Check the main power fuse that goes to the alternator output. if the alternator went out it could have burnt this fuse also.

SOURCE: replaced alternator and battery is good but not charging

I found the problem YEAH. It was the fuse that is in the side of the fuse box under the hood, Its where the battery wire from the alternator connects thru a fuse to go to the battery, Its one hundred and something volt fuse. It took care of the problem instantly.... Thank you all for your replies...

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 good, battery is good but battery isnt holding a charge


Confirm the battery test...a bad cell causes a run down in the charge...how old is the battery? A slightly swollen battery on the sides is also an indicator of a bad cell. Confirm the alternator test...this is a free service (on your car) at most parts stores...I have seen a rare starter with a "short" that slowly causes a good battery to loose its charge. Hope this helps.

Won't hold a charge


its the battery. the battery holds the charge and the alternator charges it so when you jump the car it stays running because you alternator is providing power when you shut the car off you have a bad battery that isnt holding the charge needed to start it again.
