I have a 2011 Kia Sorento that just had alternator changed and my battery light will come on and go off sometimes multiple times while driving. Battery is good what could be causing this..


You probably will need a shop to look at and test the charging system. It could be as simple as a loose connection, or something more serious. The newer systems often have the computer, the ecu, controlling the alternator and how much it charges. So it's no longer just either the battery or the alternator being at fault. It depends on the manufacturer and how the system is designed.
I don't know about Kia, but any repair shop could find the information.

Where is the alternator relay on 2004 Kia Spectra


According to my database, no generator relay, there are a couple of fuses for gen and fusible link for generator bat terminal. You could check battery amp draw with everything off. You may have to wait several minutes before testing.

What guage wire for the black fusible link?


There should be 2 white wires coming from the alternator. There is a splice where it will go into 1 wire then into the fusible link. If the fusible link is not burned, simply match the gauge wire coming from it. You should never use anything smaller in diameter than 10 gauge wire for the charging system. If you want to replace the fusible link, you can run separate white wires from the alternator to the positive battery post with individual fuses or fusible links. I would recommend each wire have its own Maxi fuse holder with a fuse no less than 60 amps each.

I put my battery in wrong in my 95 avalon now nothing happens when I trun the key, whats wrong?


It all depends on how lucky you are today. Connecting the battery backwards can destroy some high-dollar stuff. If you are really lucky, you will only have a blown fuse (or fuses). Check both of your main fuse blocks on the left side of the engine compartment,
One of the boxes is called the "Fusible Link" box and the other is called the "Engine Compartment Junction Block" (J/B) (See picture below).
Your main circuits are protected by the 40 Amp and 80 Amp fusible links in the Fusible Link box and the 120 Amp Alternator Fuse in the Junction Block. You will most likely find one or more of these fuses/fusible links blown.

I put 3 brand new batters and alternators and it keep saying charging system


Hello, your Alternator has a fusible link of about 80 Amps to protect the electrical system. The big wire from the back of the Alternator needs to be tested by disconnecting the big wire and attaching an Ohmmeter to the loose end. The other end of the big wire will be found in a power connection and at that location you run a test wire to the other end of your Ohmmeter. It should complete a circuit. If it does not, the fusible link is blown. It needs to be replaced.

If the big wire does make a circuit, the problem is in the small 12 Volt wire going to the Alternator. Usually this is termed an "exciter" wire. It feeds the small voltage into the Alternator so big Amperage comes out. If this wire is dead you need to trace it back to the Ignition switch.

Your local Autoparts store, I know Autozone, Oreillys, and Advance will show pictures of the part and often locations. Sometimes you can look in the aftermarket shop manuals they sell and reference what you need. When your Alternator shorted it probably burned the fusible link.

Would like to know how you made out and if you found my solution useful.
