It sounds as though you may have run down the battery because the alternator was not charging. You'll need to check the belt and fix whatever is keeping the alternator from turning, then get a jump start, or charge the battery. After starting, check the voltage to be certain the charging system is working. I hope this helps.

2008 Impala , my "Servive battery system charging" came on, then I started to feel my steering wheel lock up.I let the car sit and I turn it back on and I cannot move my steering wheel idk what to do


if you have an electric power steering system, you may find that the battery voltage has fallen too low to make it work . this is from the message that service battery charge system has come on, indicating that the alternator is no longer charging--broken belt , failing battery , faulty alternator , faulty regulator or problem ECM where the regulator can be

We changed the alternator and now we have a red light in the dash for battery


the red warning light comes on when there is low charging voltage test for charging voltage between the alternator and battery should be roughly 14 volts

Battery light on


The light means a no-charge malfunction. You need to have the alternator tested. Or, possibly, the belt running the alternator is too loose to allow the alternator to work properly. As long as the light is on and engine is running, you are drawing power to run the car's electricals from the battery (not the alternator, as is normal). It won't be long before the battery is run too low to keep the car running.
Good luck.

Car dies and battery light comes on


If the light is on when car is running, the alternator is still not working. Check your power distribution center near the battery for any fuses out. Maybe there is an alternator fuse.
Is your battery good? A completely dead battery may not take a charge from the alternator. It needs to be charged off the car. Have it load tested at a parts store to see if it's good.
Is your alternator belt tight? A loose belt won't let the alternator work to capacity.

Daughter called me ..car wont start. checked battery at Autozone...it is good. someone stopped to help them and bang on startere and it starts up. Bad starter. Starter replaced. Next day daughter...


it sounds like you have blown fuse to the Alternator.. I don't know what car you are talking about but they charging systems vary.. But if alternator isn't getting all the power it needs it won't charge. this should be checked.

good luck

Put in a new atl wont charge


If both the alternator and the battery are good, either the alternator isn't turning fast enough (slipping belt or engine idle speed too slow), or you have a wiring problem.

To check your wiring, look for the "1" terminal on the back of the alternator (left side of spade terminal connector). When you turn the ignition key to the run position without starting the engine, the alternator warning light should be at full brightness. If the bulb is burned out, the alternator will not get the excitation current it needs to start up (it goes through the bulb). With the engine running, you should measure 12 Volts at the 1 terminal (this is the excitation terminal).

Another thing to check is whether the battery charge wire is good. If it is corroded inside at the battery clamp end or burned out, you won't get charging even though the alternator appears to be working. If you don't have an ohmmeter, you can make a quick test by adding a new 8 AWG wire between the output terminal and the battery clamp. If the battery now charges, the original wire is bad. If this works, I recommend installing an inline fuse at the alternator end no larger than the largest size used in your electrical system, just in case something happens to the jumper wire. That way you won't burn out your alternator.

The heater/AC issue could very likely be a separate problem, but inadequate power may keep that system from running properly. (Note: low idle speed or belt problems will also be detrimental to AC performance.)

I have a 1984 dodge D150, not charging, battery is good,charges with charger\r\ntruck starts and runs pretty good,but is running off of battery, NEW altenater,regulator,and belts belts are tight,replaced...


The first thing you need to do is stop wasting your money by replacing parts. Then get a volt-ohm meter and a test light to test the circuits between the battery, the alternator, the ignition switch, the starter relay and the voltage regulator. (a.k.a. Charging System Circuits)

To start, the "B+" or "BATT" terminal on the alternator (large black wire) MUST have a solid, direct connection to the battery. Check for the proper voltage here. Then, the red wire on the alternator at the "F2" terminal should be HOT at all times. If not, you probably still have a bad fuse link that you missed. The "F1" terminal on the alternator (Light Green wire) is known as your "FIELD" wire. It comes from the "IG" terminal at the voltage regulator. It should be hot any time the key is in the ON position. If not, your voltage regulator is not working or your ignition switch is not providing power to the regulator. Finally, The "F" terminal (Red wire) at the regulator should be hot any time the ignition switch is in the ON position. This actually gets it's power from the starter relay, which gets its power from the ignition switch.

ALTERNATOR REPLACED WORKING OK NOW TIMING BELT PETROL AND BATTERY WARNING LIGHTS ON WHEN ENGINE RUNNING AND A/CON NOT WORKING


If your battery warning light is on, then your alternator is NOT working okay. Rather, maybe the alternator DOES work, but the battery light can also come on if your battery won't charge.

Put a voltmeter to the battery terminals when the engine is running and rev the engine to a medium idle. Battery charging, (engine running) it should be about 13.5-14.5 volts. Engine off fully charged battery voltage should be 12.6 volts.

Quick test-engine running, disconnect the positive battery terminal from the battery- if the engine dies, there is still an alternator problem.

Hope this helps.

Check engine light on did check and said injector cercuit open cylinder #2 car is running rough how do you fix it?


Code P0202??
Most of these problems occur because of electrical: wiring or ground problems. Before throwing money out and chasing the problem:
Check the wiring harness for Cylinder #2 Fuel Injector. Especially check the Ground wire connection on the intake manifold.
Is the Battery fully charged? The sensors and control unit runs off the battery. If the battery is not fully charged the engine will run rough.

Check these first and get back with me if it does not work.
