Question about Chevrolet Lumina
I've put a new alternator and battery in the car but it wont charge the battery i ve tried every thing im puzzled
Check to see if there is a 'fusible link' to the battery. This is like a fuse for high current.

I ran into this problem along time ago on a chevrolet beretta i replaced the alternator and then the battery and it still wouldnt charge come to find out it was the red wire that runs from the battery to the starter the end that connects to the starter was broke and wouldnt let the battery recharge, so this is what i would check next the part only costed about 50 cents at the parts place and is very easy to replace. hope this helps.

SOURCE: Battery wont keep charge
It seems as though the battery is feeding something that is turned on. Turn everything off in the car with the battery fully charged. Fold down the rear seat and see if the boot light is on. The problem can be found by trail and error. If you know a mate who can use a multimeter then he could do a check on the battery. If the battery is loosing its voltage, take out one fuse at a time to isolate which curcuit is drawing the power.

Check the main power fuse that goes to the alternator output. if the alternator went out it could have burnt this fuse also.

SOURCE: battery wont hold charge
HI. you may have a battery drain issue that is sapping your battery overnight.
Here is the procedure I use to isolate a battery drain. Remove negative battery cable from the battery. Using a 12-volt test light, hook one end to the negative battery post the other end to the negative battery cable you just disconnected. The test light will glow or "light" if there is a drain. If the "light or glow" is faint, that is probably normal draw for the clock or computer. If the "light or glow" is bright, then there is a large drain. That should be corrected. Now start removing and replacing the fuses one by one until the light goes out; that one will be the circuit with the drain. Remember to hold in the button in the door jam for the interior lights.

It could be the generator field from the ECM. The ECM supplies this variable-duty cycle signal to ground the field winding of the alternator. So the alternator may not be getting "turned on" by the computer.
