Hi Adrian:
If all of the electrical components are OK a sneaky problem is sometimes that the engine is not properly grounded. Make sure that the engine is grounded to the frame, and that all of the ground wires are connected.

SOURCE: Charging Light On After Replacing Alternator/Battery1999Windstar

Hi, I can't tell you exactly what is wrong because there is too much involved at this point, what with 2 shops working with it, but I can give you some advise on what else to check. On the alternators and the wiring that supports them a small volt charge is taken off one of the slip rings, where the brushes ride, for the purpose of turning out the light. As I remember, this is a yellow wire that runs back to the dash.

To the alternator, it would be one of the wires that plug into the side of the alternator case.

SOURCE: Battery not re-charging, replaced battery and alternator no luck

Here are a couple of ideas for you to try. First check in the power ditribution box under the hood, there is a fuse for the charging system, either use a circuit tester or just pull each fuse one at a time. Usually it is a 10 amp fuse as it is on my 94 cherekee. if you find any bad fuses replace them with same type and amperage. you should also check the fuse box on the right side of the dash, door has to be open for acess to the cover on the end of the dashboard, check all of those fuses also. If you live near an AUTOZONE auto parts store, take your jeep there and they can test your alternator on the vehicle , or you can remove it from vehicle and take it inside, they can bench test it. If you have a volt meter you can test it yourself, start vehicle, set meter to volts at least 20 or higher , place black probe on negative post on battery, red on positive, look at readout, a good alternator will put out 13.5 to14.0 volts, which is how much it takes to run vehicle and accesories and charge battery. If alternator doesn't put out 13.5 to 14.0 volts it is defective. I hope these ideas help.

The first thing I would do is remove the alternater and take it to an auto parts store and have them check it. If the alternater is working good, then check the belts are routed and have the right tension. Either of these can keep the battery from charging. It's very common that a rebuilt alternater isn't working properly. If all these things are correct, check the live wire to the alternater is live. If it isn't alive you have problems in the wiring and I would take it to a mechanic.

Car won't start.


Sounds like you have a charging system issue. Check the battery voltage when the vehicle shuts down. If it is a bout 8 volts, you need to have the charging system checked out.

Electrical short or loose connection


did this problem start after the new alternator or is this the reason you replaced the alternator? sounds like a loose wire on the alternator or the battery post. make sure the battery terminals are clean from corrosion. if there is a hot spot on the wires or connectors that is a good sign that is a loose connection.

2002 chrysler sebring 2.7 v6 elictrical problem???


Sounds like a charging system issue. Just because the alternator itself tested fine doesn't mean it's getting power to the car and battery. Charge the battery and start the car (with everything connected normally, including alternator). While car is idling, disconnect the battery (negative post wI'll do). If car dies, there's a problem with the alternator wiring/harness. Once the vehicle is running, the alternator should provide plenty of power. Check voltage at battery (from alternator) and should be around 14V. Check alternator fuse.
Could be the voltage regulator in the alternator going out, which would need a new alternator.

Chrysler Sebring 2004 Convertible Bad Battery Charge Problems


I would look at the alternator. I had a grand am that would do that to me, even with a brand new battery. The alternator output wasn't able to run the vehicle and charge the battery. Alternators are picky things, especially being in Canada (which I assume from the KM), the hot and cold cycles don't play nicely with the brushes and core. I'd have the alternator checked and replaced if needed.
