SOURCE: 1999 F350 diesel 7.3 single alternator system

you may have a bad plug wire to the back of the alternator you can test that with a light tester but when you replace a alternator in a diesel at start up it takes about 35 secands before the unit will kick on

SOURCE: Charging problem.. Wont charge battery

The instructions for installing a new alternator usually read to fully charge the battery (12.3 - 12.8 volt range). Otherwise, the alternator will be damaged when it initializes. I have seen some extreme damage result from installing a new alternator with a low-charge battery. The torque required to turn an alternator when damaged in this scenario is unbelieveable!

SOURCE: service engine soon light, service light, reduce power etc.

It is most likely the Throttle Position Sensor has gone bad. But if the check engine light is on, the only way to tell exact problem, is to have a scanner placed on the vehicle to have the codes read.

I have a 2004 Nissan maxima and as I was driving it, the car shut down.No power brakes, steering etc.It would crank but not start


check the alternator. may not be charging. car will run until battery dies and than it will die, since things like computer and other components are not getting power. also cam sensors may cause this, but usually the service engine soon light will light up, if sensor fails.

PO106 check engine on Kia Forte after battery died


did you check that battery is charging with a multi meter ? could be that your alternator has a fault . Icheck battery voltage with engine off and running , voltage should be approx. 12.48v with engine off and around 14v running . if no increase in voltage when running brushes in alternator will need replacing .

Driving along lights dimmed, instrument panel died, loss of power then engine cut out & wouldn't start. Starts with a jump but when i turn key to heat glow plug, instrument panel goes mad


I assume there's a problem with alternator. Check the grounding to engine, check continuity of a positive wire between alternator and battery. the energizing voltage should be checked as well. Might be the bad connection between battery and vehicle body grounding. Diesel cars are sensitive even in a little loss of connection and rust in the connection points.

2004 buick rendezvous loses power after jump starting, while engine idlies battery power dies. Unable to restart again unless I jump start. Also, battery light comes on. Battery was replaced 5/28/13.


Sounds like the alternator. A jump can start you but if the alternator is bad your battery will not charge and just die after you use the power you got from the jump.

Take off jumper cables it dies


You're alternator is dead. Once started the alternator should generate enough power by itself to keep the engine running.

1994 Pontiac Grand Am Its sat about 2 months now. I went out to start it. It was dead. So I jumped it. Well I got it started and the check engine light and abs light was on. Well I put my foot underneath...


If the battery is bad and not holding a charge, every time you push on the brake's. The break lights come on and puts a load on the electrical system and if the voltage drops below 10.5 volts, the ECM will shut down fuel injector and ignition system. The other thing to is that the fuel pressure may be dropping due to the electric fuel pump not getting enough volts every time you put on the brakes. You cold always try keeping the jumper cables connected to make sure it's the voltage drop that is causing the engine to stall. Keep me posted, be glad to help you get your car running 1005 again soon.
