My brand new alternator wont stay charged


Check the charging relay if working. You can find it in the fuse box which is either in the engine compartment or under the dashboard on the drivers side legroom.

I have a 1996 honda civic vtec, my battery will not stay charged took my car to autozone, checked the alternator, battery and there both good. what could be the problem why isnt the battery staying...


I not that familiar with the honda civic vtec, but most cars have a voltage regulator for the battery. Many of the new alternators have this item belt-in, but others are separate components. You may want to check to see what your design is for your model.

find out if the voltage regulator is built in the alternator,

if not find it and test it.

If it is, it could be bad plugs for the alternator or bad wiring in the charging circut

the problem is either in the batterie or alternator. junkyard alternators are a 50/50 chance of working. you should go to your local parts store and have them do a batterie/ alternator test. they dont require you to take them out the car.

I have a brand new battery in my 2000 Honda Civic & the car will not start now. The battery was installed 2 days ago & the car started just fine & ran fine, but then I didn't drive it for 2...


Check the function of the alternator. Charge the battery with a battery charger or jump start the engine. While the engine is running use a voltmeter to check the voltage at the battery posts. Red to + and black to -. You should have between 13.5 − 16 volts. If you do not the alternator is bad or the drive belt is loose. If the alternator checks ok then something is on that is drawing power from the battery and running it down. Check under hood, trunk, glove box, and interior lights. Can also be a brake light switch causing the brake lights to stay on. In rare cases it can also be a stuck relay such as a power window relay. From you description I think you will find the alternator is ok and your problem is something is on and running the battery down.

Sounds like you may have bad battery make sure your battery is getting the charging voltage of 13,8 volts or higher check it with a volt meter and see if the alternator is working right I've gotten bad alternators one can never be to sure than elminate that problem and move onto the battery make sure its good. it should have 12.6 volts or higher after it has been fully charged or you think its charged . than last check your relays and your fuses make sure there all working good luck

Can't figure out problem with civic!!


ok, the solution for it is very simple.
get it to autozone and ask them to do an alternator test to see if the alternator is producing energy if you are the kind of person that doesn't know anything about cars.
if you are a semi-skilled person then get a voltimeter and test the battery with the car on. and the positive lead with positive and negative with negative, it should read about 14 or more.
if you go to autozone or o'reilly then ask to see the voltage on their little tester. and if you see a voltage of around 14 then you can be sure that the problem is not your alternator.
thank you
if your alternator test fine then the next step would be to check your battery. turn the headlights on with car off, then voltage should not go below 10 volts when you plug the voltimeter.
