If you've changed the alternator and it's still not charging then it may be your starter or you may have bought a bad alternator. how long are you letting it charge before trying to start it

    make sure everything is tight enough. if your serpentine belt isn't tight enough or doesn't have enough tension it may not allow it to charge

Alternator not charging


The starter would have nothing to do with the alternator not charging. You most likely need a new alternator and possibly a new battery. At the very least, the battery will need to be charged 100% before running with a new alternator.

Not charging change rectifier still don't charge


the rectifier has nothing to do with the charge rate of an alternator . It simply changes the ac current produced by the alternator into dc for the battery and electronics. If the alternator is still not charging then the regulator would be the thing to change along with the brushes

Battery good, alternator good, starter good but my 1966 oldsmobile the alternator isn't charging the battery


Have you replaced the voltage regulator?
Unless you have changed the charging system and eliminated it, the alternator does not have a built-in voltage regulator like the newer ones do.
Be blessed.

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.

Replaced battery 4 times


Hello,

there are two things involved. Its either you didn't buy an original battery or the alternator of your car is not very active.

The alternator is suppose to charge the battery, but if the alternator is not supplying full current, it won't charge the battery very well and this will make the battery run down.

I had this problem of recent and I had to change my alternator.

But note that you cannot just change the alternator. Have your alternator tested by a re-wire to confirm if its effective or not. So this will determine whether the battery is not original or if it ran down because it was not charged fully by the alternator.

Good luck.
