Might be alternator: Try to check the battery voltage with the engine running. Should be at least 13.6V from the alternator to charge the battery enough.

Pete,

Many auto parts stores will check your battery for you free of charge (no pun intended). You may have a failing charging system or dead cell in the battery - or both. With the car running just above idle, and all electric accessories off - you should be able to read 13.5 VDC or more on the battery terminals. Good luck!

1998 Plymouth Breeze Drains the battery


Check to see that the trunk light and glove compartment light actually turn OFF when the trunk and glove box doors are closed. Also, if one of the diodes on the alternator has failed, it may still test "good." With the car sitting, ignition off, fully-charged battery, check to see if the back of the alternator is HOT. If it is HOT, replace the alternator.

Battery light is on and stays on


Most of the time, the battery light being on is telling you that the battery is not fully charging. Could be your alternator is failing...(a free check at most auto parts stores) Could be the alternator (serpentine belt) is slipping...(worn out or stretched) or simply it could be an indication of the battery not "holding the charge" provided by the alternator. Could be a bad cell in the battery (a free check at most auto parts stores) Or it could just be dirty (corroded) battery terminals...In any event you do not need to be stranded. Any of these small problems can expose you to being stranded...Please have your charging system checked. Hope this helps.

I just had the belts changed on my 1998 Plymouth Breeze and the power steering pump and bracket changed. I have noticed lately that there is a squealing noise coming from under the hood. Could my belts...


The belts shouldn't need to be changed again. There are a number of reasons why the belt could be squealing. There could be too little tension on the belt, either adjusted incorrectly or a bad automatic tensioner. Fluids could be leaking onto the belt. Pulleys could be misaligned or it's possible that the wrong size belt was used. I would bring it back to whomever changed the belts and explain what is occurring and under what conditions.

The battery does not hold a charge


Check the voltage output of the alternator. 12 to 14 volts is good. Also check battery cables, clean corrosion, good ground, and bolts are tight. Then replace battery.

Battery wont hold a charge overnight but starts right away with a jump or battery charger and runs throughout the day


sounds like the electrolyte levels in your battery are extremely low which will cause it to not hold a charge except over the day when the alternator is constantly recharging it, ask a mechanic to either top it up or buy a new battery
