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?

Alternator not charging


If the alternators are not exactly the same as the original then there may be a problem with the voltage regulator circuit. Some alternators have internal regulators and others have external regulators.. Check for fuses in the charge circuit . If the battery is faulty then the alternators will not charge any way. Have a load test done on the battery.. If ok check the wiring circuit as the alternators require battery voltage before they will charge (no residual magnetism in an alternator)

Is it my alternator?


if you can charge the battery and it will start and then you run it for awhile and it dies then the alternator is not charging your battery so it probably needs replaced

Replaced alternator in 1998 ford expedition battery light stays on, not charging as before replacement, battery is one week old replaced alternator today.


Did you get the wires all back in place? What voltage do you have at the output of the alternator? Measure the voltage with the engine running and not running.

Will not start, battery related, was needing to be jumped so changed battery, started fine for a month and same thing again, except today it will not even jump start


while the battery has been charged, check for a voltage of 12- 12.5 volts,, then start the vehicle,, you should get a reading of 13.75- 14.5 volts , which would show the alternator and voltage regulator of functioning properly if not,, charge the battery and replace the alternator

The car is not holdong a charge. I replaced the Battery about a year ago. Today I replaced the alternator. I used jumper cables it ran for about 20 minutes and then died again. All the wires look good. Any...


FIRST, YOU MAKE SURE THE BATTERY IS FULLY CHARGED.. A GOOD BATTERY WILL GO FOR 12 HOURS EVEN IF THE ALTERNATOR IS NOT WORKING.. SECOND YOU TURN THE CAR ON.. ONCE THE CAR IS ON. YOU DISCONECT THE BATTERY,, IF THE ALTERNATOR IS GOOD , THE CAR SHOULD REMAIN ON WITHOUT A BATTERY.. IF IT SHUTS DOWN , YOU HAVE A BAD ALTERNATOR OR THE WIRING IS WRONG ONE OF THE TWO.. SHORTS ON YOUR WIRING CAN CAUSE THE BATTERY TO LOOSE POWER.. BUT NOT THAT FAST. BECAUSE IF THE SHORT WAS TO SERIOUS.. YOUR WIRING WOULD BE BURNED.. COMPLETELY..
IF THE ALTERNATOR IS OKAY,, REPLACE YOUR BATTERY,, MOST OF THE TIME BATTERIES GO BAD EASY WITH ANY LITTLE PROBLEM THE CELLS BURNOUT AND THEY DONT HOLD A CHARGE EVEN IF FULLY CHARGED THEY WILL LOOSE POWER IMMEDIATELY .. I THINK THAT IS YOUR PROBLEM.. SINCE IT ONLY LASTED LIKE 20 MINUTES.

How can I check my alternator on my 1999 Ford Ranger. The Ranger died on the side of the road today, and all that showed was to check the battery prior for about 10 minutes.


well...whenever the battery light comes on in a vehicle its almost always a charging problem,i would suggest replacing the alternator and charging the battery before starting it,alternators were meant to keep a battery charged NOT charge a battery, hope this helps

You most likely have a bad alternator that is not charging the battery properly. Have the battery charged fully and replace the alternator. This should fix your problem.

I just replaced the altenator Saturday and I replaced the battery today. My battery light came back on to night what might be the problem?


Check the plug going to the alternator. There should be a 3 or 4 wire plug on the back or side of the alternator. If one of those wires is burnt, the alternator will not charge.
