Check for power and ground at the plug. Also check continuity at those wires. You should have 12 volts with the key on. And a good ground. Less than 5 ohms resistance at any wire checked. Clean any corrosion and the battery,starter and alternator and grounds.

Bad battery not taking the charge.

    Cheers for reply Ted, the battery is spot on. I'm thinking break or bad connection in the loom but I'm not the best with electrics to be honest.

SOURCE: 95 pathfinder wont stay running and doesnt charge

Check all grounds running from all electrical, If there is not a good contact this problem will occur, when you locate the ground surface take sandpaper or even a knife and scrape or sand the connector and the ground surface then reconnect it, It should return to normal if not then it could be a solenoid possibly but not sure

SOURCE: Sometimes alternater does not charge battery

Drive the car to the auto parts store and have them test the battery and alternator for proper charge.  You probably just bought a dud, even though they are new.  Doesn't happen much but does happen.

I need parts list for Kubota excavator rx501


As you may well be aware, Kubota USA does not offer any support for your tractor. This is because that model is a "gray market" item (that has been banned for importation in 1997). Kubota initiated this legal action because the unauthorized importation, distribution and sale of Kubota "gray market" tractors by individuals or companies independent of Kubota adversely affected Kubota's reputation in the United States and with the United States consumer. Following an extensive evidentiary hearing in the Fall of 1996, the United States International Trade Commission affirmed a finding by the Administrative Law Judge that the importation, distribution and sale of these "gray market" tractors infringed upon Kubota's registered trademark, issued a General Exclusion Order prohibiting further importation, and issued various Cease and Desist Orders against the respondents. The Court of Appeals affirmed the Commission decision. Such "gray market" items typically are of inferior quality and/or workmanship.
However, you ca find what you need at 3rd party suppliers. Try this one: http://www.kenkidepotneo.com/cgi-bin/heavy_equipment_parts.cgi?category_type=&category=FILTERS&equipment_type=&equipment=&maker=KUBOTA&model=RX501&part_no=&page=

Can you check alternator by taking bat cable off while running on Volvo mini excavator


That would depend on if it has an electric fuel solenoid or mechanical. If you have to pull a lever or knob to get the engine to die when you want to shut it off, it wouldn't matter if the alternator is charging or not, the engine will keep running until it runs out of fuel. If the engine dies when you turn off the key, this would indicate an electric fuel cut off and should shut off when the battery cable is removed if the alternator is not charging. But I think the best way to check your alternator is with a multi meter or at least a volt meter. With the engine running you should have at least 12.5V to 13.5V at the battery at idle.

Already replaced new battery, new alternator, fuse, and pt connector - voltage sits at 12.9 running - system still not charging?


It isn't a good idea to disconnect the battery while it is running as the resulting voltage surge can damage electronics. Obviously if it isn't charging there won't be much of a surge...

Some alternators are mounted in rubber to cut noise and vibration. This type needs a ground wire which is sometimes forgotten during replacement and sometimes the ground wire just breaks.

A standard alternator only needs two or three wires and sometimes a ground wire. If the direct connection to the battery is good, the ignition light wire intact and working and if needed a battery sensing wire (though this wire isn't often needed in the last couple of decades) the alternator, if it is any good, will charge the battery at the regulated voltage of about 14.5.
If you are sure the alternator is a good one and it isn't charging the connecting wires must be at fault and need to be checked.

There is one other possibility and that applies only in the case of smart charging systems. If your car has a smart charging system the alternator will have several extra wires, usually plugged into the side of the machine.
The alternator works in a similar way to the standard unit except instruction from a separate control unit is capable of reducing or suspending charging. The smart charge black box talks with the engine management black box and charging is suspended during acceleration to cut fuel consumption or improve acceleration. A fault in the smart charge system can prevent the alternator charging.

Disconnecting the additional wiring will allow the alternator to perform its normal function without interruption. The ignition, charge or battery light is controlled by the black box and can do strange things that mean nothing when the smart charge is disconnected.

Kubota B 1700 not charging


With everything connected and the engine running, you should see a charging voltage of about 13.5 ~ 15 VDC on the battery terminals. Engine off and and lights / or some other load on the battery should show around 12.5 VDC.

If the 14 ~ 15 VDC charge voltage is present when running, and the battery fails to start the engine; it could indicate a poor connection at the battery posts, dead or failing cell(s) or failing starter.

Have a look at the video below - even though it's about cars charging systems, it applies. Good luck!

Kubota troubleshooting


Check the cables going to the battery. Make sure you have a good ground and a good connection to the starter.

Alternator problem


Easy way to check with a voltmeter. Check battery voltage on the battery terminals with key off, engine off, and then check voltage with engine running.
Engine off, a good battery should have voltage between 12.6 volts and 12.9 volts. With engine running, battery voltage should be a minimum of 13.5 volts, somewhere between 13.5 and 14.5 volts. This would indicate the alternator is good and is charging the battery. If voltage is less than 13.5 volts, if it only shows same volts as when not running, the alternator is not working right. Take it off and have tested for free at a parts store. It could be a bad alternator or it could be that the wiring between alternator and battery has a problem. If alternator tests good, start looking into the connections between alternator and battery.
Does your battery or alternator light stay on when engine is running? This would indicate a charging system problem. Time for the voltmeter test.

Daughter called me ..car wont start. checked battery at Autozone...it is good. someone stopped to help them and bang on startere and it starts up. Bad starter. Starter replaced. Next day daughter...


it sounds like you have blown fuse to the Alternator.. I don't know what car you are talking about but they charging systems vary.. But if alternator isn't getting all the power it needs it won't charge. this should be checked.

good luck

The battery in my 2006 Liberty keeps dying. I had a new one put installed in May 2010 and now in November 2010 the battery is dead again.


Have the system checked for more than .2 Amps draw in which case there is a short somewhere.

Also, check that the alternator is charging the battery by putting it on a starting/charging machine at Sears or Walmart or the parts store in your area (e.g. Autozone or Advance Auto Parts).

Good luck on this repair.
