98 izzu hombre 4.3 battery went dead after a jump it wont start how to fix


The jump start may have blown you alternator or voltage regulator. If so, you have an inactive charging system. You must have a good battery for this to work, Disconnect the positive cable to the battery. Use a battery charger to slow charge your battery. When the battery is fully charged, reattach the positive cable and try to start your engine. If it starts take the truck to a shop or auto zone to have the charging system checked. Fix what is needed.
Any time a vehicle is jump started, do so with the hot battery car not running and its ignition off. If it is running and your car starts one or both charging systems are usually damaged. There may not be damage if it is GM to GM or Ford to Ford, etc., but to be safe, do not let both cars run at the same time when connected.

I have no power to the switch or any thing else. Battery is fully charged. No lights nothing electrical works.


Your year--make--model didn't post for some reason? That info would be helpful.
When the vehicle is running, it's the charging system that should carry the load, not the battery. If the charging system can't handle it, it will drain the battery.

If battery has a full charge, check the battery connections. Use a testlight and follow the voltage. Check the fuse circuits in the fuse box. Some fuse circuits are hot all the time, some go hot with the key on. I can't tell if you have fusible links w/o more info.

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.

1996 cadillac eldorado new battery new alternator still wont charge


Hey Jeff. Never assume that "new" alternator is good, but lets assume it is.The actuator wire that goes into the field of the alternator HAS to be hot with the key in run position. (both wires will be). If not, it wont charge. If those two are hot with the key on, the alternator is bad.

My car keeps dying out, could it be the battery or alternator?


unlikely, if it starts the battery is good because it just started the car and the alternator is good because it charged the battery the prior time it was running. i would put some thought into a fuel supply problem, such as the pressure falling off rapidly after a start; or something getting hot in the ignition systrem and failing causing a loss of spark.

I have a 1988 Ford F 250 that will not charge the battery, I have replaced the battery and the alt.


at the alternantor you should have a small hot wire from ignition call the alternator energize wire, this wire has to be hot to tell the alternator to charge. run a hot wire to alt and check charging.

I have 1988 chevy camaro v6 2.8 Alternator is not puting juice back into the battery, i have a new battery and alternator. the car will run until the juice is gone from the battery,unless i'm running...


Does the charge lamp work? If not fix it. The alternator needs excite voltage or it won't work. In the past, worked on 80 Camaro, the generator wouldn't charge, no excite voltage. The charge lamp on the dash wouldn't work. I removed the dash enough to get at charge lamp bulb, it had vibrated loose in the socket, over time, pushed it back in, the lamp started working and the generator started charging. The L terminal at the gen should be excite voltage. At that time, I also tried to use jumper wire to get excite voltage to generator, it didn't work for me, either. I'm not sure battery voltage is proper? Those connections have to be real good.
The bat terminal on the generator, hot all the time, engine off, it should be. If not check that wiring circuit. Could be other issues.
