    car wont hold charge while running it kills the battery. The battery is good and replaced alternator twice but when the alternators are on the car and tested says bad regulator but when i take off the alternator and test it tests good this is the second alternator. Also when on the car it only reads its putting out 12.2 to 12.5 volts. Is there any sensors or chips that could be bad.

1997 Monte Carlo battery wont stay charged after a jump. The car will warm up then when turned off won't turn over it makes a clicking noise when ignition is terned.


Could be a bad battery, and or alternator, if the alternator does not charge the battery when the vehicle is running your battery will drain causing no start.

Maybe.
It means the alternator is not charging the battery.
The battery could have a dead cell, or the alternator could be faulty, or a wiring problem between the two components.
You would need to have the battery and alternator tested.

Have New battery and Alternator, battery still won't stay charged.


Since you are having a new battery and alternator the charging circuit of the electronic charging unit is a possible suspect.
All what is required is to check the charging voltage when the engine is started, if there is no increment of voltage when the engine runs the alternator then the connection from the alternator must be checked. Check the output from alternator, check the relay box which contains the charging unit. It can be a failure of the rectification or the stabilising circuit, the unit must be replaced.

I have a 98 S 10.The battery won't stay charged but the volt meter still shows 14 while running.Any ideas will help ,Thanks.


Ya, when the car is running, you're using power from the alternator. So it will show 14 volts as long as its running. The fact that it won't hold the charge means the battery is shot and you probably need a new one

My car won't stay running when I unhook the


Most alternators are not designed for that much current load. That was a practice that was used several years ago as a test.. but its really ******* alternators and wiring. Leave the battery connected and use a voltmeter to check while the car is running. Set the volt meter on 20 volts or so on the DC setting. Put positive to positive on the battery and neg to neg.. You should see 13.5 volts or above if your alternator is working properly.. Hope this helps..

CHECK ALTERNATOR DRIVE BELT COULD BE LOOSE NEED ADJUSTING OR GLAZED NEED REPLACING. IF ALL IS GOOD, CHECK ALTERNATOR VOLTAGE OUT PUT AT BATTERY SHOULD BE 13.5 - 14.5 VOLTS. IF NOT ALTERNATOR FAULTY BUT CHECK ALTERNATOR BATTERY FEED AND VOLTAGE REGULATOR WIRES FOR LOOSE CONNECTION OR DAMAGED FRAYED WIRES. CHECK ALTERNATOR FUSE.CHECK THOSE THINGS BEFORE BUYING NEW ALTERNATOR.FIRST TURN OFF RADIO BEFORE DISCONNECTING BATTERY CABLE TO KEEP FROM LOCKING OUT RADIO.

Went to store car would not start check gauges light came on battery showed low, but has a 4 month old new battery.


Either you left a light on for a while, commonly headlights and dome lights, or the alternator is bad.

Get a jump start and run the engine for a while, it should charge the battery if it was just you left the lights on.

If the car won't stay running, take a trip to Autozone and have them test your alternator (don't worry, it's free and can be done in the car if you would rather tow the car than try to remove the alternator).

The battery won't hold charge new battery


You put a new battery, now its acting like very low power again?
Most likely the alternator is bad. Maybe not putting out enough to recharge battery. Could have been the original problem.

Can be checked with a meter. Battery at rest should show 12 - 12.9 volts more or less.
With engine running, should be showing 13.5 - 14.7 volts as alternator is pushing electric back into battery.

If you start engine and (after say 10 seconds) voltage stays same or drops, then the charger needs to be replaced. Thats the alternator. Shop around at different auto parts store. (Phone first)
