Check the Voltage Regulator, and how old is the battery, Check the cells in the battery. If battery is 3 years or older replace.

Probably some sensor is failing. Have your engine codes scanned. many auto part stores will scan your vehicle codes.

Because the alternator is not charging

Hi can you clarify a bit more?
Have you had your battery checked? to confirm it is still good and holding its charge?
As for the new alternator, are all the cables from alternator to battery\ground clean and not torn or ripped?
Bring you car to an Autozone or type of auto store,sometimes they can do a free diagnostic check for you.

i would try a new starter first. take it off and go to your local automotive part store and have them determine wether it is bad or not. if thats not the problem then it could possibly be the alternator, my best friend had a dodge dakota that did the same thing you are describing and came to find out the person he had just bought the truck off of put a new alternator on the truck but it was the wrong amp alternator for that truck. he got the right one and truck is just fine now. make sure you check the power and ground connections on your battery before you do any of this stuff, sometimes the connections can be loose. good luck

2001 dakota. when you first start it, it is charging then after a couple of minutes it stops charging. I put in a new battery and the same thing. I put in a new alternator and the same thing. It starts...

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you have an engine scan. During diagnostic, it will list the trouble codes and by then you will know what part to be replaced. Even though that for me, the computer itself is faulty. If the computer is faulty then you will need to have it replaced.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

New alternator didn't charge battery. (2VDC

As the car re-started, the battery is not flat.
The voltages measured indicate a problem with either the power or ground connection in the circuit between the alternator and the battery.

You likely have a intermittent / poor ground connection somewhere in the power system.
Check battery terminals are clean and firmly attached.
Check battery cable and alternator ground connections are intact and in good order.

Battery loses charge while driving. Won't

It sounds like you have a major compent shorted out somewhere. Some thing is causing a discharge. Therefore your altenator is not responding and the car is draining the battery. Is the circuit between the altenator and the battery broken?? Also, you may need to check all the chassis grounds. Sometimes all your problems can stem from just a bad ground.
