Hi there.
A alternator not charging could be a lot of things.
dirty battery term\broken feed wire from battery to alternator\brushes or dirty rotor slip rings\regulator\ stator wire broken\ or even loose fan belt.
So if f\belt is tight then check with test light power from battery pos to alternator pos term [if ok] take to your local Auto Elect people as you could cause other problems, but check out the list first.

With hearing that it is not putting out power only I would start by testing the alt to make sure it is still good, if so check belts, and then battery connections. I ran into a problem once where the connection looked good but was not. This is a lot of steps but with little information a start.

Hi, Do you have a battery warning light on the dash? If so you need to do a few checks. first you need to check your main positive terminal at the back of the alternator is in good condition and that the voltage is the same as at the battery main positive terminal. then test that there is a good earth to the alternator from the battery, If you have a battery warning lamp on the dash and the positive and negative to the alternator test ok then the unit will require repair or replacing.

First a alt needs power to make power check to see if you have ahot wire going in if you do then could be the diodes inside the alt

Check the alternator with a multimeter set to 20 volts, look for the thicker wires that connect to the battery. If you get under 13 volts you should bring it to an auto part store and have it bench tested. If it is bad it is either worn brushes, a bad diode or diodes, a bad wire winding or a defective voltage regulator. These are all problems that are internal to the alternator.

SOURCE: 98 Dodge Stratus won't start

Best place to start is with "check engine light". Put vehicle in park, foot on brake, and cycle key on, off, on, off, on, then wait with pen & paper ready to read flashes of check engine lamp. Will be a 2 digit code each time. For example, flash, short pause & flash, will be 11, or flash, flash, short pause, flash, flash would be 22. In between trouble codes you'll get a little longer pause, then it will start to flash again if more than one code, which is quite possible. Also note that I say key to on, not start, just on.(normal run position) Then get back to us and we'll be able to better help you.

SOURCE: My 98 dodge stratus won't startbut it will turn

You need to check if its got air, fuel, and spark. spray some throttle body cleaner in the throttle body and quickly try to start it. if it fires up then your not getting fuel so you may need a fuel pump and filter. If it does nothing check for spark, if you have no spark then you need to check the coils and crank position sensor.

Help locating a short.


have the voltage regulator checked
also have the rectifier pack checked in the alternator by using a multimeter that reads ac as well as dc volts
if it is ac volts , replace the alternator
if the voltage regulator is faulty there will not be enough volts to charge a battery
At this point I doubt if it is a short in a circuit but a problem in the charging system
