SOURCE: battery does not hold charge
You have a short at one of your systems. It#s sometimes difficult to find such a "electrical gremlin"... I've searched one week and dismounted the whole interior... try to check some systems for a short as follows: connect a Ampere meter for this checks. First try to remove fuses out of the power distribution center right in engine compartment. Do this step by step, one fuse, if fine, fuse back, next fuse and so on.. if you find the main system with the short, do the same with the fuses in dashboard, passenger side how connected with this main circuit. If you've located the circuit with the short, check the whole wiring system related to this circuit till you get him. ..or.... let a specialist check your car. Good Luck!

Does the battery light work in the dash? Do you have 12 volts to the stator (often marked "S") wire at the alternator when the key is turned on? If no light system will not charge.

All alternators have voltage regulators. Depnding on type and age the regulator will be in different locations. Most modern ones have the reg. inside the ALT. Older ones it's outside. Those with built-in ones also differ. Bosch and Lucas - you can remove the REG without opening the alternator. Mitsubishi - you hhave to open the alterntor. onfirm the alternator type and the post can help you better.
