Chevy tracker alternator

My Chevy Tracker wont turn over. Just clicks and the headlights and dash lights are dim. A new battery was installed and it still wont turn over or try to start. It also killed a new battery but if it was the alternator it should at least turn over and try to start with a new battery right. The lights gradually become brighter when the ignition is on. Not getting a click in the starter either.

Sounds like a bad connection or a bad battery cable. Are the battery cables clean and tight on both ends ?
Yes the engine should crank if the battery is charged no matter what condition the alternator is in.

Those are all symptom,s of a low system voltage condition, so you had better get a 2nd opinion on the Alternator, I strongly suggest you seek out a dealer service dept for help.

If your battery and alternator connections are clean and tight, then it is often a weak alternator. Time to have it tested.

My 1999 chevy tracker will not start


Well the alternator won't have anything directly to do with an engine not starting. Only if the battery is dead because the alternator is not charging it.
If the engine cranks but does not start, someone will need to figure out if you are lacking fuel to the injectors, spark to the plugs, or compression to proceed with testing.

My 99' chevy tracker has power surges and interior lights on dashboard do not come on and radio time goes very dim when automatic headlights come on


Do you know how to test automotive electrical circuits ? Checking B+ voltage an grounds ? Voltage drop testing ? Do you know what a electrical wiring diagram is ? How to use one to pin point testing spots in a electrical circuit ! A couple simple test's using a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter is probably all it would take to find the problem . High resistance in a power or ground circuit is probably all it is .

Flickering lights on 2001 Chevy tracker


I had similar problems, with dash board lights and headlights flickering, and the problem was a dying alternator. After I changed it, everything got back in normal. Also, a bad alternator eventually will kill your car's battery, too. I hope this will help you.
