I think you need a new alternator. Also check every fuse in depth. Make sure all the connections are in place and secure.

SOURCE: need diagram on alternator belt replacement on a

If the same as my '94 cyl then you tighten the belt by loosening the bolt that the alternator pivots on and the bolt that tightens the alternator to it's adjustment bracket. For my truck this is neither fun nor easy. The a/c and power steering belts having idler pulleys with adjustments on them making them MUCH easier to deal with.

Have an 07 f350 Ford pick up 6.0L power stroke .batterys replaced . Alternator replaced . Dash battery light still stays on no charge .soure voltage gd to alternator ,and plug . Reads gd voltage to si

I would try the regulator, there is a few tests to see if the alternator is charging, use a multi meter and check the b post on the alternator and earth and see what voltage it is producing, check all those sort of things and you will find the problem, make sure the battery terminals are very clean or they won't accept charge as well, hope this helps

Had the alt replaced on my 98 etc in march. Last month the battery not charging light came on and the car died. Bad alt or more serious problem

If you have access to a multimeter start the car put the meter on range 20v dc or if it's an auto range meter just put it on DC and while the car is running put the meter at the battery pos to pos and neg to neg . it should read between 14 - 14.5 v if it's not the alternator is not charging the battery. If it reads OVER 14.5 It is cooking your battery. I have 2 Cadillacs myself and the rebuilt alternators you get are horrible i replace 2 a year cause the rebuilds are crappy. I used to rebuild them myself but the kits are no longer available.

Battery won't stay charged but the alternator is working good?

If the alternator is charging properly, then you have a drain on the system that could come from anything eclectically powered, you will need to start by removing the fuse to the radio and/or clock, then connect a test light from the negative post on the battery to the battery cable (negative battery cable disconnected positive connected), if the light comes on, you have a drain and will need to start pulling and replacing fuses one by one to isolate the affected system, if the test light has not gone off while pulling fuses, you may have a drain coming from the alternator or starter and will have to disconnect those.

probably the alternator, when you replaced the battery it had a full charge and once the vehicle used all that charge up and it wasn't charging it could no longer start the car anymore. If your battery light is on in the car it is a fairly certain sign that the alternator is not charging. Generally an AVR test is the best way to check the alternator, but if you can jump start the vehicle, connect a voltmeter to the battery it should be around 14 volts when the vehicle is running and around 12 volts when the vehicle is not running. If it is not at 14 volts when it is running, it is not charging.

check all fuses, if one is blown replace and see if it blows instantly. If it does then those wires to that circuit are melted causing a short which could be draining the battery. but also check the battery with a cold draw test to make sure batt is good. could of been a ground wire under dash that smoked but you should be able to locate a melted casing on a wire. check battery first to be sure.

I'd replace the fuel filter first. Have the battery load-checked to assure full speed from the starter and verify that the alternator is maintaining full charge. Beyond that, I'm not much help.

Squeaky belt and battery light on now

+++ been told to fix blue smoke...piston rings gone .

Piston rings, valve seals are a good guess for cause of blue smoke. Engin oil additives for high-mileage engines can help the blue smoke problem... Pep Boys and the like -- many different products -- just make sure it's for stopping smoke, not cleaning engines...

+++ belt gone.

Has the alternator belt been tightened? If not, this could be causing both symptoms: dead battery & squealing

I want to fix it myself b/c im poor-how?

It is very important that you know exactly what you are doing when you replace a drive-belt pulley! It is possible that if you get the timing wrong that your engine will fail! The alternator can be replaced with little knowledge but if your car starts and runs then there is no problem with the alternator nor the timing. If your belt looks worn down or has fray marks on it then i would suggest to change it. Also, unless the tensioner is cracked or broken there is no need to replace that.
