Battery keeps going dead..but when negative terminal wire is removed engine keeps this an alternator issue or just a bad battery?

With the engine running check the voltage coming out of the alternator it should be 13.5-14.7 volts anything more or less replace alternator.

Battery light on dash flases on 2001 ford expedition

alternator is going bad or just the regulator circuit to keep output constant is going bad. if alternator is the problem, first check for oxidation on cables, if they are ok probably the brushes inside alternator are worned out. you need a new alternator or need it to be fixed. if regulator is bad you need a new regulator or the broken component to be fixed. either ways this must be an easy fix. 1 hour job.

could be several things, firstly next time pay someone else to do it. most likely your tech is missing something, and is misdiagnosing another problem as being a bad alternator. Until the bad part is found and replaced, it will continue to eat alternators.

Battery and alternator is good,but the break light,srs air bag light and the battery light stay on all the time and the car will go dead while in motion. what could be the problem?

Your alternator cant be good if all those dash lights are on then the alternator is bad, reoplace it and make sure the battery is tested, a bad battery can and will destroy a new alternator, also make sure the connections at the rear of the alternator are good, the reason for car dieing in motion is due to the battery draining down and theres not enough voltage to keep ecletrical components going, you must have a bad connection at alternator or alternator is bad. and the last thing to check would be the alt fuse which should be located near the postive battery terminal. good luck.

My 1995 Mazda 626 alternator keeps going bad. i have changed it 3 times now and after about a week or so of driving the batter light comes back on. What is causing my alternator to keep breaking?

The solution I usually recommend is to try a 'lifetime' warranteed alternator from a major automotive retail outlet. Higher quality parts are put into such a unit vs. the 1 year warranteed alternators.

This is just a general rule I go by.

If you already have a lifetime warranteed alternator, I would try a different brand or company.

Where did you buy this alternator? And how much was the unit?

Generally, I would look to spend over $100 for a good alternator with higher quality parts in it.

If the problem persists, one might want to go to an alternator/starter shop or auto electric specialty shop to determine what is causing the alternator to go bad so often.

However, I suspect that it's just bad parts from the get go.

My truck is making a whinning noise when you crank it up. It then gets louder as you give it gas.

You could have a Serpentine belt going bad or the tension pulley has gone bad. The noise can also indicate a bad alternator bearing and your going to have to replace the alternator soon. The alternator will still keep working and producing 13 to 14.5 volts, but the bearing may be bad and will fail soon causing your alternator to total fail then. Good luck and hope it's a simple serpentine belt or tension pulley that needs to be replaced other then a alternator. If it's the Alternator that has gone bad, Auto Zone will have the replacement part and can give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done with common tools.

Daughter's 1999 Jetta; smelled burnt rubber when leaving work last week. Car ran fine. Yesterday, started squealing (sounded like belt slipping) when started. Later in day, she turned car off and sat with...

It sounds like the alternator belt or the alternator is going bad. The squealing sound was probably the alternator belt. the alternator belt might need to get tightened or replaced or you may need a new alternator. The alternator keeps the battery charged. When the alternator goes bad the battery can not be recharged. You also should keep the power steering fluid up to par or the power steering will go bad on you.
