Yes maybe the alternator is at fault, but if your engine lacks power and can't attain the required charging RPM, then your battery will not be charged even if the alternator is alright.

Maybe the real cause is your engine. A compression test will verify if the engine is still alright. You had it for 14 years, did the engine already had an overhaul? A ring and valve job?

If it wont hold a charge its most likely your alternator. and if there is no power CHECK THE OIL! and the transmission!

I am trying to replace the battery for a '97 Suzuki Sidekick. The battery terminals were so corroded, I had to cut the wire and put on some universal terminals. There are two wires for each terminal-


This happens in the shop all the time. It is not necessary to remove the alarm if you have the remote for the alarm. Simply hook the battery up and press the button to turn the alarm off.

There is a fuse on the battery terminal. It seems that this particular fuse has blown. Please replace this fuse.This fuse is like a master switch. Cuts off all electricity circuits.

95 wrangler yj. has no power at high speeds


Have you had fuel pressure tested, and/or filter changed. Have you checked for plugged exhaust, such as catalytic converter? Quite often engine will also run a little hotter than normal when exhaust is plugged.
