Check all your fuses if you had a system failure it could have blown a fuse. I am not sure on your vehicle where the fuse is in the car or under the hood it could also have a relay. You can check your alternator by checking the voltage at the back of the alternator where the big wire bolts on. You should have 14+ volts at the alternator.

My 2008 Chevy uplander I change alternator and the battery excellent but the alternator fail to charge

You need to replace the alternator my friend. Battery may be holding a charge for a short time. But if the alternator is not feeding back to the battery the car will start but only run for a short time.

My 2007 dodge 1500 alternator won't charge

Check the battery condition as low battery will not induce the alternator to work. Check belt tension and condition. Place a multi meter in the battery to alternator wire and check for dc and ac current and if you have ac then the rectifier diodes in the alternator have failed.

Car died the other day,wouldn't hold a charge, husband replaced alternator and belt charged it up but is running very rough any ideas?

Why was the alternator changed? Was it not charging the battery? Was the Check Engine light on? If so, the fault codes need to be scanned to determine the area of the problem. There is not enough information to make a diagnosis.

My Chevy blazer wouldn't start mad a clicking

this is one of two problems (maybe both) ...
1. The battery has been fully discharged before, preventing it from being able to hold a charge properly. This can be tested at a Sears Automotive Center. If the battery is no good, get a replacement and you should be fine (at least for a while). If you are going to go to Sears, have them run a full electrical diagnostic -- if there is something draining your battery while the car is not in use changing the battery will only hide the problem for a few months until the new battery fully discharges, and the same issue with resurface.
2. Your alternator is not charging the battery. It might be pumping out electricity to the wiring that it is connected to, but the charge may not be getting all the way to the battery. Sears can also check this with their diagnostic tools, and should be able to locate and repair the problem for you. Unfortunately, without a VERY expensive diagnostic machine, it is very hard to tell exactly where the problem is occurring .. so taking it in to a shop is probably your best bet.

I have been getting Charging System Failure messages on my instrument panel and when this happens the steering freezes up (no power steering). I have had it into the dealer and they changed the alternator...

your idle air controller valve on the throttle body may be no good.if the idle speed drops too low,the alternator will have no output,and the steering rack which on the uplander i believe is electric like the cobalt,will not put out enough drive.if you shut off the vehicle,but leave the ignition on,and it has an electric rack,the steering should still work.if it doesnt it is hydraulic assist.if the idle speed goes to say 400 rpm,the power steering will not work .when this happens,check the tachometer what the rpm is...

Have the battery tested with and without a load. The alternator can be checked at this time as well.
