You should YES check all Grounds Around Battery B U T Also there are AUX Power Cables that go to the Battery Chase them to see that they have NO corrosion or Breaks. It Sounds as though you have a SIMPLE No Power to Accessories type problem.

SOURCE: Charging Problem 1993 toyota pickup

Hello! I too am PA St Insp Mechanic.

Here are some suggestions:

Note that the Fuel injection computer starts to cease to work properly at 10.5 VDC. This leads me to a voltage issue. You mentioning that the veh has bright headlamps may be consuming more power than the alt can deliver, with the heater, the lights and the other "normal" draws.

Test the alt output with a voltmeter, plus to plus, minus to minus, at the battery. You should read 14 + volts with all of the above mentioned accessories on, at idle. 11-12 volts = bad alternator, unless the belt is real slipping bad. 14.4 is the spec.

Also, the Voltage Regulator in inside the alternator.

Glad to provide assistance to you; please rate my help with a FixYa, I would be very grateful.

SOURCE: battery dies after a day or two of no use

Sounds like you have a power drain, have you installed any new electrical items recently, lift off your Neg batt connection, as you touch it back, is there a spark, if so,this shows a power drain somewhere. Does your battery go flat when car left to stand, or does it go flat regardless of if you run the engine?

You need to get someone who knows how to use a Multimeter. It is a device that registers how much voltage, is present at your battery when your alternator is charging. Anyone can use one of these tools and they are cheap to buy, just add some AA batteries. Put the negative lead on the negative battery terminal and the positive lead on the positibe battery terminal, set the device to read Voltage and read the display that tells you how much voltage is present when the car is off, then on, and when you turn on different accessories like head lights, AC, etc. your alternator should produce more Voltage with each new thing you turn on. You will see this voltage go up as you read the multimeter on the battery terminals. If you don't see the Voltage go up the alternator is bad.

Now, likely a new alternator should be good, and you said you had the batter tested, hopefully they knew what they were doing. Lastly, I would unhook the aftermarket stereo for a week or two and see if that solves the problem. Also you should check all connections to the battery and to the alternator to make sure there isn't anything loose, that was the problem on my car, the alternator conector was loose and wiggeling and caused the battery light to come on intermittently. Hope this helps you out!!!

Replaced starter, alternater and battery car still drains battery. whats wrong?


First you can not test an alternator by disconnecting the battery cable. That is what we did back when cars had generators. Today you can fry the computer and alternator running the engine with the battery cable off.
Meanwhile, I would look for a fuseable link or main fuse problem. The alternator circuit may not be connected to the fuse box and battery.

Just replaced the battery and starter in my Beetle two days ago. This morning i go to drive it and the battery light comes on and so does the ABS light. Then it dies. What is wrong with it??


Ok , You need to check the wiring at the starter motor, there should be a heavy red wire going from the starter motor (battery side terminal on solenoid post) to the Alternator , This would explain your not charging and eventualy not starting. They use the starter solenoid post as a connector for the battery to Alternator. Let's know how it goes for ya .

Lights are dimming, gauges are zeroing out while i'm driving. Could this be my alternator? Because car has new battery and starter.


If your battery is charge indicator light does not come on and battery is holding charge after a couple days of driving it is unlikely your alternator is faulty.
If the lights are dimming on youe meter cluster only, it could be a bad connector to the meter cluster.
If your head light are dimming it could be a bad battery connection or the alternator.
