SOURCE: battery will not stay charged

Check the battery strength and then double check your alternator to make sure it's charging.. I installed 3 alternators, new off the shelf, on one vehicle, and all three were duds (4th one worked fine). If the battery does not need replacing, and the alternator is charging, double check and make sure no components are left on such as a light in the glove box.

Battery light stays on. Guage cluster amp meter reads normal charging 13-14 amps. Truck starts normal.


If charging light is on, it means some thing in the charging system is going bad. use a test light!-- battery voltage at battery when truck is off should be at least 12.6 or better, if alternator was charging good. if less than 12.4 and it is charging ok. battery is going bad. when engine is running, at the battery there should be at least 13.8 to 14.2 volts or better.if alternator is ok, all checks are done at the battery posts to determine voltage. Hope this helps you out! if less than 13.8 or lower while running. alt, is bad.

I would replace the alternator. The test might of proved it was ok but that just checks to make sure its putting out the amperage its rated at. Sounds like its shorted internally and putting out full amps all the time.

It looks like the altenator is overcharging. Take it in to an autoelectrician and have it checked out on their bench. 15 amps is a bit high for a charging rate, 14 amps is just about the limit.

My 95 surburban wont crank changed the stater got a new batt and new batt post still wont crank


Obtain a 12 volt test light, ground the clip on the negative battery post, and check for light at the large terminal on the starter solenoid. If lit, have someone try the key--if the light goes out, place the light on the battery positive post and try the starter again. If it goes out again, either the battery needs to be charged, or it is defective. If the light stays lit in the first test, then place the light on the starter motor terminal and retry the key (do you hear a fairly loud click?). If nothing but the click, replace the solenoid itself. If no click at all, test the small terminal on the solenoid and try the key. If you get light, replace the solenoid. If no light, check for blown fuses. If ok, then suspect a bad ignition switch. Hope some of this helps!

Check the function of the alternator. Charge the battery with a battery charger or jump start the engine. While the engine is running use a voltmeter to check the voltage at the battery posts. Red to + and black to -. You should have between 13.5 − 16 volts. If you do not the alternator is bad or the drive belt is loose. If the alternator checks ok then something is on that is drawing power from the battery and running it down. Check under hood, trunk, glove box, and interior lights. Can also be a brake light switch causing the brake lights to stay on. In rare cases it can also be a stuck relay such as a power window relay. From you description I think you will find the alternator is ok and your problem is something is on and running the battery down.

Alternator not charging battery


If your "battery" light on the dash is going on and staying on the alternator is definitely faulty, either the diodes or the wiring. However, if the light doesn't come on when you turn the ignition key to "IG" position - befort it starts - check that the bulb is ok. The alternator won't work if the bulb is dead.
