I have a 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager SE and I just replaced Alternator, battery, PCM. The alternator is not receiving enough power to charge the battery. Only putting out 11.58. What could be the p

First, you state "the battery is only getting 11.58". This implies the alternator IS charging albeit too low. I would connect the voltmeter to the main terminal on the alternator and take a reading before starting the motor, then again with the motor running at around 1500 RPM (fast idle). This will indicate whether the alternator is working or not.

Getting back to the ign light, does it remain at the same brilliance before starting the engine and after?

Car dies and battery light comes on

If the light is on when car is running, the alternator is still not working. Check your power distribution center near the battery for any fuses out. Maybe there is an alternator fuse.
Is your battery good? A completely dead battery may not take a charge from the alternator. It needs to be charged off the car. Have it load tested at a parts store to see if it's good.
Is your alternator belt tight? A loose belt won't let the alternator work to capacity.

Have 97 acura won't stay charge changed battery

the battery wont stay charged? if youre putting in a fully charged battery and your car runs, but then the battery slowly dies, the problem will be your alternator. the alternator is what maintains a car batteries charge. try replacing the alternator. hope this helps.

Ok I have a 89 chevy 1500, it start, runs, and go. When I hit the blinker signal, the battery volts drop, and when I come off the brakes and accelerate, the brake and battery light come on and 5 seconds...

It's either your battery or alternator have them tested. If your alternator is bad it wont charge the battery. If the battery is bad it won't hold the charge from the alternator. Good luck!

My 1999 chevy silverado will not consistently start and when it does run will die when I come to a stop, the battery indicator is on and none of the electrical works in the cab?

have your alternator checked. your chevy is probably running on the battery which is probably only receiving a particle charge from the alternator. I had a chevy did the same thing when ever the alternator was going out.

A. Power Issue: The battery does not hold a charge due to over-amping. Causes: a) the alternator is rated for industrial work; b) it has specific wire gauges for the alternator circuit. Repairs for this...

a bad alternator can over charge as well as under charge - suggest getting a second opinion elsewhere - as far as alternator being "too big" - it will only give the battery what it needs when it is working properly regardless of size

New alternator and batery still not charging

Not enough information. When was the alternator changed and was the battery fully charged before trying to start after installing new alternator. If not the alternator could have burnt up. Have electrical system checked free at Advance Auto.
