Your altenator is not put out a charge. have it checked to see if maybe a wire is loose or the unit itself is defective.

Charge wire from the alternator to the battery is bad or not connected properly. Check the 120 amp charge fuse link in the underhood fuse box. Voltage at tne battery should be at least 13.5vdc with engine running.

2006 chevy trailblazer is not charging battery. battery and alt are new


Volts slowly drop to where what quits ,The vehicle stops running ? Is the charge indicator light lit on the instrument cluster /? are any lights lit on the instrument cluster ? The instrument panel cluster (IPC) illuminates the charge indicator and the BATTERY NOT CHARGING message is displayed in the message center when the following occurs:
The engine control module (ECM)/powertrain control module (PCM) detects that the generator output is less than 11 volts or greater than 16 volts. The IPC receives a serial data message from the ECM/PCM requesting illumination.


?€¢
The IPC determines that the system voltage is less than 11 volts or greater than 16 volts. The IPC receives a serial data message from the body control module (BCM) indicating the system voltage.


?€¢
The IPC performs the displays test at the start of each ignition cycle. The indicator illuminates for approximately 3 seconds.


?€¢
The ignition is on, with the engine off

2000 pathfinder battery draining


Sounds like your alternator is doing nothing-the car is running only off the battery. Have your charging system checked-does your battery light stay lit? If that bulb is burnt out, that may be why the charging system is not working. On some charging systems, that bulb is crucial for the alternator to work.
Engine off, a fully charged battery should measure 12.5 volts with a voltmeter. Engine idling, and the voltmeter at the same battery should be showing about 13.5 volts. This tells you the charging system is working.

or small light not shutting off like glove box light, light down by foot, light under hood or back up light staying on.

I bought a new alternator and charged by battery but my battery is still not charging and nothing inside of my truck works but motor still going what's wrong and how can I fix it


Take a voltmeter to the battery while truck is running. Should read 12.8 to 14,6 volts - that'll prove your alternator is working. My suspicions are your battery is tired and just not holding charge as deeply as it once did.

2006 G6 GT sedan, was parked a while and battery died. Replaced the battery and started engine no problem, ran for a half an hour. Next morning tried to start but wouldn't even turn over. Plenty of power...


YOU NEED AN AUTO ELECTRICIAN TO LOCATE THE BATTERY DRAIN & OR BAD CONNECTION . THE TRUNK LIGHT MAY BE STAYING ON WHEN THE TRUNK IS SHUT, ALSO THE ALTERNATOR CAN CHARGE THE BATTERY, WHILE THE ENGINE IS RUNNING, BUT IF A DIODE IS BAD IT CAN DRAIN THE BATTERY WHEN THE ENGINE IS OFF

Vehicle was parked and not started for 2 months.


Hi, there will be diodes in the generator that are letting the power from the battery drain away through the parked times when not in use. to prove it charge the battery- then disconnect the negative terminal on the battery, connect 24 hours later and see if the battery as kept it charge, if so - fit new alternator, good luck.

One year old battery kept dying. It tested bad and


There is some things to check....

(1) Is your alternator charging? take your vehicle to Advanced Autos, Napa or someone like that and have them test your alternator.
(2) Is there something in the vehicle causing excessive drain on the battery when the motor is not running... like is the interior light may be on or something to that affect.
(3) Are you doing enough driving to recharge your battery? short stops and starts is not good for a battery as you may rob more energy from the battery then you are putting back in.
Sounds like something is draining your battery, something must be left on in the vehicle, Advanced Autos or Napa should be able to tell if something is draining your battery when the vehicle is off.
