SOURCE: 2003 kia sedona wont charge battery with new alternator

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.

Check your new battery if it is charged up, sounds like something is draining your battery, or your alternator is not charging properly, check your charging system

Have a 2000 Kia Sportage. Car wont start. Put in a used battery, vehicle started then eventually stopped working and battery appeared to be drained. If the vehicle is draining the car battery, what would...


Given your car's symptoms the alternator is probably bad. If you're able to drive the car, or remove the alternator, many auto parts stores (e.g.; O'Reilly's) will test the alternator for free (and possibly replace it).

Hi i had a 1996 sportage AT,the problem with my sportage it wont start and the battery is always drained up specially when not in use.even witha new battery it wont start up


Have an alternator test performed to verify that the alternator is working adequately. If it's not charging the battery enough a drain will result.

If that's not the case, then a parasitic draw test will have to be performed to find out where the drain is coming from. Chances are something like the glove box light is remaining on, or you have a minor short causing the battery to drain. You can look up how to do this but it's a better idea to see the dealership as they have the Kia specific training to do this and will know the common problems to look for.

Good luck!
