I have a new alternator and a new battery and the truck ran good for 1 week. went to start it and it was dead, but nothing was left on. what could it be? I can jump start it and it will run, but when we disconnect the jumper cables and the batter cables, it should run by the alternator, but dies instantly

It could have a bad fuse. It is also possible you bought a bad altenator have seen that many times. If you have a voltmeter check the output voltage at altenator

It could be the alternator is not charging the battery. the people at Auto Zone can check for free if you can get it started and drive it there. some chevy alternators will work fine till they get hot, then they quit working.

I would say that you need to replace the alternator. The car was running on the batteries power. When you drove the car, it ran the battery completely dead.

It sounds like the alternator belt or the alternator is going bad. The squealing sound was probably the alternator belt. the alternator belt might need to get tightened or replaced or you may need a new alternator. The alternator keeps the battery charged. When the alternator goes bad the battery can not be recharged. You also should keep the power steering fluid up to par or the power steering will go bad on you.

If everything is turning on, and there's power... check for 12V at the alternator. it may be out now.... or a connector came loose, or wire broke.

Battery keeps going dead. Especially if car not driven for day or two. KIA ran checks of electrical system but found nothing. Am on sixth battery. Newest one only 3 weeks old and went dead over weekend.


it may maybe that the alternator doesnt give out the specific amount of electricity to properly charge your battery. you may have to run some tests on the alternator itself to see if it is giving out the proper current to charge.
