SOURCE: won,t start after it sits a while

Alternator may be faulty and not charging the battery or you may have a voltage leak to ground which is discharging the battery like a clock or radio light or some other faulty electrical component leaking power.

The alternator is the easiest to check. Does the battery go flat as you drive it? If not its probably not the alternator. You could check it with a current meter when the engine is running.

You could do the same with the battery when the engine is off to see what the current drain is. This might give you an angle on the thing which is draining the battery.

SOURCE: battery light stays on after changing battery,alternater & plugin.

Is the system charging? You should have 14.2 14.6 volts at the battery. The charge light is controlled by the alternator internally. If the charging system is working, you could have a bad diode inside the alternator keeping the light on or a short/grounded circuit to the battery light

My 2008 jeep commander is cranking but when u drive it an cut it off it won't crank unless you charge the battery the battery is good an i had my alternater tested it's good I put a new battery in it...

You may have fried the fuseable link that comes off of the positive battery terminal. Disconnect it from the post as well as the negative cable from the battery. Check the continuity along the length of the cable anywhere thrre is no continuity the link has blow, replace it or the entire cable.

Check battery lite came on after going through snow+wont go off

Take the positive wire off the battery for a few minutes and hook it back up it should reset. If that doesn't take care of it your alternater may have shorted out from getting wet which would mean a new one needs put in.

Put new alternater car won't start battery on charger just give clicking sound when trying to start

if lites come on real brite, suspect starter. you can try tapping on starter while someone holds the key in start position, use a long rod or something if possible, car might start and you don't want to be under it! if lites are dim, suspect battery or connections. if you have a voltmeter, look up voltage drop testing on the internet and it will show you how to check the cables and connections

Alternater trouble Mitsubishi Montero Sport 2003

I have had the exact problem. I've changed altenator 3 times also and it has the same leak, but I've changed altenator an batterys over 2 year span. It just happend to me today after not driving it for 5 months. It's been in storage while I was away. Drive it fine for 2 days but today the radio kept shutting off and finally the car died right in the middle of the road. Bought a new battery because I had a warranty on last battery, but bought it just to get it home and in the driveway. Did you ever find out what was wrong with it?

Battery lite stays on when engine is running

If you have checked the battery, alternater, fuses and relays, it could be a faulty earth. Alternater may be faulty, there is a very good chance your fan belt may need tightening, your fan belt should not be too slack as if it was slack, it would not charge the battery properly and thus cause the battery light to stay on, if you push down on the belt it should move a little, but hardly much, if it is slack you may also get a squeal especially in wet weather, I would reccomend that you replace the fan belt. This is not expensive especially if you do the job yourself.

Bad regulator, is about I can figure, I have gotten a bad alternator before also. I am not sure if it is in the alternater are not, Some cars have a seperate regulator mounted under the hood if that is the case follow the wires from your alternator to locate it, Hope this helped you
