hi check the main alternator charigng wire the comes out of your alternator see if it is sending a 14v no less reading on a multimeter if not replace the alternator if so go to your battery see if the multimeter readings are the same as the alternator if so do a battery discharge test if not trace the path of the main wire which comes from the alternator to the battery for breaks and all connections yates210456

well are you sure that you have a good or it just shows the correct
amount of voltage. which that should 12.6 volts for a fully charged
battery. to actually answer your question, (assuming)
you do have a good battery your alt. shouldn't keep it from cranking unless it is locked up, but you would use a digital volt meter and select the d.c. volts setting touch the red (positive lead) to the red (positive post) on the battery and the ground ( black lead ) to the ground terminal on the battery (negative post). it should read very close to 14 volts. if not check to see if you are getting voltage to your alt. by using your volt meter to test the power wire going to your alt. it will be the one on the backside of your alt with a protective boot over it. with your volt meter still set on dc volts touch your black lead lead to a good ground and your red lead to your power wire going to your alt. it should have 12 volts there. if not check your fuses. if your car clicks when you try to start it then you may have a bad battery connection. dirty terminals with corrosion built up on them will do the same thing. also a starter that is bad will click because the bendix can't kick out to engage the flywheel to turn your engine over. well hope i answered your question and then some.
