Did u replace the battery too? Most often than not if u replace alternator u must do the same with battery.

SOURCE: 95 pathfinder wont stay running and doesnt charge

Check all grounds running from all electrical, If there is not a good contact this problem will occur, when you locate the ground surface take sandpaper or even a knife and scrape or sand the connector and the ground surface then reconnect it, It should return to normal if not then it could be a solenoid possibly but not sure

How long did the 2nd alt. last before it died? The voltage regulator is, I believe, attached to the alternator. Have u had the voltage regulator checked?

Truck will not start after replacing alternator


Sounds like your battery is suspect, have a load test done on your battery at any walmart, also a bad starter will act the same way sometimes, when you have a good battery and a good alternator, also make sure ALL your battery cables and posts are not corroded.

Will not charge battery. Replaced alternator and accidently sparked the large hot wire to ground during re-assembly. Checked all fuses and are good.


Will the battery take a charge, charging it with a battery charger ? Might want to have alternator checked to see if its any good, make sure battery cable connectors are tight, if they arent the battery more than likely wont take a charge.

Battery will not charge, first time its ever did this. rebuilt alternator new battery and new starter not to sure if new starter has anything to do with battery chargin but replaced it anyway, has good...


A bad voltage regulator could cause the problem. Assuming the alternator is working correctly. Jump the vehicle with the battery disconnected and then disconnect the jumper cables. If the vehicle dies your voltage regulator or Alternator are bad, some vehicle have separate regulators from the alternator, if it continues to run the alternator is good but the voltage regulator is probably the cause.

My car started dying and now hasnt enough charge to start


sound like bad battery cables.replace them.the positive battery cable is old and have a lot of resistance not allowing power to the alternator to charge battery.if battery cable good check alternator connector wires.make sure they are not damage also check alternator fuse and fuse link.turn off radio before removing battery wires so you wont lose radio code.

Battery wont stay charged, alternator problem?


I suggest that you take the car to an autoparts store and have them check the alternator output. That will tell whether the alternator is putting out sufficient voltage to keep the battery charged or not. Most parts stores will check the alternator for free. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Curious what the output should be for alternator 2003 ford focus


SOUNDS LIKE AN ALTERNATOR PROBLEM THE SYSTEM IS NOT RECHARGING ITS SELF AS IT SHOULD AND THEREFORE IT IS DRAINING THE LIFE OUT OF YOUR BATTERY AND WILL EVENTUALLY KILL THE NEW BATTERY TOO.

Please clarify, Although the alternator light is on, can you start the car? Does it turn over, but not start? If it won't turn over, you 1st need to charge the battery and try to start it. If the light remains on, have your alternator checked, it probably isn't charging the battery. How old is the battery? If it doesn't charge up, it should also be tested to make sure it's ok. Let me know the answers to the above, and let me know what happens. good luck countrycurt0

My 96 chevy Tahoe wont hold a charge and dies after about an hour. I replaced the alternator and even got a new battery. So where do I need to start looking next


Check the big red wire on the back of the alternator for power. The wire likes to get corroded in half inside the casing but is still held together BY the casing. you can even take a jumper cable from the positive side of the battery to the big/single wire on the back of the alternator. Now , you could have a bad ground also. take a voltmeter or test light and with the ground of the tester on the ground of the battery check for power on the case of the alternator. Another thing , does the alternator or charge light on the dash light up woth the key off? the alternator knows to "start-up" or "field-up" by the power it recieves through the bulb before the engine is started. once the engine starts the small brown wire on the alternator goes hot and shuts the light on the dash off cause it now has power on both legs of it. if the bulb blows then the alternator won't field-up. good luck.
