We bought two new battery's a new alternator checked all fusible links from alternator to battery. Truck only runs for a few days with battery light on then we have to charge the battery. It's an 2004


open or shorted alternator circuit (control wire)
let your auto store test the alternator charging
on and off the truck.
inspect 3 wire connector for burn or lose connection
disconnect 3 pin wire and start the engine.if the light stay on you have shot to ground.

71 c10 not staying charged... new battery alternator fuses good and new voltage regulator


Maybe it wasn't running long enough to charge up the battery?
Stop trying to jump it, when you are having problems with it dying, take the battery off and have it charged. And/or buy a $20 voltmeter to see what the battery shows. If it says less than 12 volts, it is discharged, and needs charging. A good battery that is not run down should have at least 12.5 volts. A new battery that is charged should have very close to 13 volts, maybe 12.8 volts.
When you have the truck running, check the alternator for charging. You put the voltmeter right on the battery and check it again. This time, with truck running, battery should show at least 13.5 volts. That shows the alternator is working. A good alternator will put out about 13 or 14 volts-the regulator will keep it from going any higher to prevent problems, like a melting battery or electrical parts burning out.
I would say get the charging system working right, then address the problem of dying at stop lights. That could be a carburetor problem, if the alternator is working.

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.

Battery was dead, tried to boost car with cables, no charge at all, bought new battery next evening the car is completely dead...again, could it be alternator not charging?


You are probably correct on the bad alternator...Did your battery shop test the old battery? As you get your Mazda running again...(limited use with bad alternator) most parts stores can test the alternator output to confirm it is bad...Hope this helps.

I have an 88 jeep comanche that has a new battery and new alternator but wont keep charge. What could be the problem and how do I fix this.


IF YOU CHECK FUSE.BATTERY CABLES COULD BE FAULTY IF VERY OLD.THEY CAUSE HIGH RESISTANCE IN CHARGING CIRCUIT.CHECK FOR LOOSE DRIVE BELT.AND CHECK ALTERNATOR WIRING IF BROKEN OR DAMAGE YOU WONT GET CHARGED.AND MOST OF ALL MAKE SURE YOU BOUGHT THE RIGHT AMP ALTERNATOR.

BATTERY OVERCHARGED AND ALTERNATOR IS FINE


If you have a fully charged battery when you installed then 14 volts is way to much charge for the battery which would mean that the alternator probably has a faulty regulator and the alternator needs to be changed otherwise you will continue to install new batteries. If the battery was in an uncharged state then it is possible for the alternator to charge at full capacity to charge up the battery.
