Couple of things to check, first this may be nothing more than a belt that has loosened or stretched after the install.There should only be about a quarter of an inch stretch in the belt between pulleys. Caution - only check with engine stopped!!! The alternator causes a strong resistance when it is producing electric power, so slippage is to be checked first. Second, if the battery light comes on and off; it maybe acting in error. Get a multi-meter and check the battery voltage with car and ignition shut off. With the meter set on 12volt bat, place the black probe on the negative side of battery or ground and the red probe on the positive side of battery. If you get a reading of 12.66 v the battery is being charged and is full. If you get 12.45 you have a 50% charged battery. If less the alternator wiring needs further checking into as there maybe issues with wiring or the alternator itself. Hope this helps.

There are a couple of small/thin wires that are on the alternator. One will be for the field the other is for the idiot light. I would guess that one of those wires got damaged when the alt. was replaced or was weak and when they were touched they failed. If you find nothing wrong then pul the alt. back out and have it bench tested.

Battery not holding charge, recently changed alternator, and put new battery,car ran fine. then was forced to park car and not use. car satfor 4-5 months then the problems started


Hi Gene:
I'd suggest trying to start from the beginning with this.
Try disconnectinf the battery and charging it fully.
When you re-connect it, the "service engine light" may not be on . that would be nice. If there is a problem the light will come back on. Make sure the gas cap is screwed on tight.
The battery not holding a charge is ypically a separate problem from the service engine light.

1996 Plymouth breeze .put in used battery runs door light stays on check engine light stays on next day battery dead charged half a hour starts gas gauge moves every time I start it check engine light on...


Check battery and see if it can be fully charged. If there is an indicator on the battery it should be green or measure the voltage with the engine off and see if it is close to 12Vdc. If the battery tests good there could be a problem with the electrical wiring or a bad device that draws current when the car is off. Glove box light gould be on, trunk light stays on etc...

1996 Plymouth breeze .put in used battery ran well .next day dead. Charged up . Ran again check engine light stays on door light stays on fuel gauge moves to different positions Help. Thanx left ove


I fail to see how you do not believe you have a
failed battery,the used one

Buy a new battery with the correct Group Size for the
car & at least 700 CCA rating

Napa top of the line with NO Caps on top, would be a
good choice

Look on napa web site.they are made by Penn Battery

BAT 8475 690 CCA $112.37

1998 Breeze will not hold charge


Pete,

Many auto parts stores will check your battery for you free of charge (no pun intended). You may have a failing charging system or dead cell in the battery - or both. With the car running just above idle, and all electric accessories off - you should be able to read 13.5 VDC or more on the battery terminals. Good luck!

1998 Plymouth Breeze Drains the battery


Check to see that the trunk light and glove compartment light actually turn OFF when the trunk and glove box doors are closed. Also, if one of the diodes on the alternator has failed, it may still test "good." With the car sitting, ignition off, fully-charged battery, check to see if the back of the alternator is HOT. If it is HOT, replace the alternator.

Will not start


Open the air filter container. Spray some starting fluid in and see if it starts. If it starts, it is the fuel filter or fuel pump or both.
