renew the alternator ,its a bosch unit as original and the diode rectifier pack has a faulty diode ,change and get a bosch replacement unit and not a made in china cheapo their just juk and not worth the effort
Sounds like the battery. If its not holding power it will cause the car to die. The alternator will charge the battery and keep power to the vehicle, but the battery is also apart of the process.
Replace the battery and check the battery cables for corrosion. At autozone or wherever you go to get a new battery get some terminal grease/protector for your battery. Its like .99 for a packet and will help keep your connections to the battery from corrosion.
it sounds like you have blown fuse to the Alternator.. I don't know what car you are talking about but they charging systems vary.. But if alternator isn't getting all the power it needs it won't charge. this should be checked.
You can have the alternator tested for free at your local parts store...easier if you can drive it to the auto parts store:) Sounds like it is the alternator...in rare cases the starter can have a short that causes this drain...but usually takes overnight...my guess again is the alternator...Is the timing belt scheduled for a change? This repair is not for the meek...Hope this helps.
First off, DON'T pull battery cable when running. That used to be the way to test charging systems years ago, not these days. Hopefully you didn't destroy your new alternator. IF, you have access to a volt meter, with car running put leads in each battery terminal you should have voltage at 13.1v - to 14.8v, Anything less, your alternator is bad. If it tests ok, then someone either missed a lead on back of alternator or one of wires is pinched.
if your battery died while driving and the car cut off while your driving,, your problem is from your alternator!!!,, on a normal working car, you can start, remove ther battery terminals and the car would still run cause the alternator will be powering the car. In your case the alternator isnt working and the car was working on battery power therefore when the battery went dead the car cut off.. Your alternator need \s to be charging between 13.5 and 14.2 volts.. as little as 10 volts will keep the vehicle running.. I'd suggest you have the alternator replaced.
when you were driving, after replacing the battery, if u felt the car loosing some horse power, until it dies, then YES its your alternator, it is not recharjing the battery with power, so the car keep on sucking the battery until it dies, try to check your alternator, or check your the plug "located on the alternator itself"
Sound's like a bad alternator, you can check the alternator by measuring the voltage on the battery when the car is started, it should measure above 12.6 volt's but not higher than 14.5 volt's, check the drive belt tension, a lose or wore drive-belt could cause problem's with the alternator charging the batery, check the battery terminal's for corrosion, along with the connection's of the battery cable's.
Hope this help's, good luck.
