SOURCE: altenator is not charging the battery

sir , the altenator has 3 wires at the connector correct ? a white/red , a green/white and a black , the white/red wire is involved with a 10 amp fuse to do with the charging meter / gauge , the fuse located behind left side of dash .. the green/white wire is is involved with 2 fuses , a 10 amp ECU fuse and a 25 amp Main fuse located at left rear of engine compartment main box , and the black wire is involved with a main 80 amp fuse at the main box also . both of these 2 wires end up at the positive side of the battery , please verify all these fuses are good . if they are indeed good , then open wiring would be next step verify continuity on black and the white/green wires . i would post a link to diagram but autozone repair info site is down at this time . if ya need more help , please ask .

Battery not charging showing on the display for the second time after I changed the battery once and the altenator twice. What could the problem be?


Take a good look at the alternator plug. The tabs on the inside should all look the same. Also a lot of corrosion can cause no contact. Replace the plug if necessary.

take your car to a autolect
because you draw more current as what your altenator can charges let him test your altenator it must charges at 13.05 volts

Have to boost then it won't stay running


just had the same problem and i ended up having to change the altenator, for 2 or 3 weeks i would have to bang on the altenator with a hammer while it was running because my battery light would keep coming on. but after a few taps with a hammer you could actually here it start working again. i did that one to many times and broke the housing on the altenator and eventually had to replace it.

2004 mustang won't start because of anti theft system


Did you check the battery of the car (maybe loose cable)? but if it just happen suddenly, it might be your altenator that wasn't charging your battery. I think once there's enough power gone through the car then your anti-theft system should work as normal again.

Did anybody bother to actually TEST the charging and starting system or are we just replacing parts? This whole thing COULD be caused by something as simple as a bad battery cable connection.

The truck stalled a few days ago. It was jumped and ran fine. Yesterday it stalls again, but won't the battery won't hold a charge. It was towed to the shop and they said everything tested fine once they...


sound like might have a prooblem with the charging system. if the altenator is not charging the battery while driving then when the battery voltage gets too low (prob around 10volts) then the computers will shut down, then when jump started it gets some power back, and when the battery is charged will all work fine for a while.
does your model have the voltage gauge in the dash? should be over 12 volts when engine running, 14volts is a good charge rate. and should stay up above 12 all the time, with lights on air condon etc...
and altenators can be funny, work sometimes, and not atother times,

Truck won't start however once i get a jump it is


checke your altenator for charge. if the altenator is putting out more than 10 volts your truck will still run but your battery will not charge , a good altenator will produce 13.0 - 14.25volts .
