SOURCE: Battery wont keep charge

It seems as though the battery is feeding something that is turned on. Turn everything off in the car with the battery fully charged. Fold down the rear seat and see if the boot light is on. The problem can be found by trail and error. If you know a mate who can use a multimeter then he could do a check on the battery. If the battery is loosing its voltage, take out one fuse at a time to isolate which curcuit is drawing the power.

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: battery charge light comes on a few minutes after car starts

Couple of things to check, first this may be nothing more than a belt that has loosened or stretched after the install.There should only be about a quarter of an inch stretch in the belt between pulleys. Caution - only check with engine stopped!!! The alternator causes a strong resistance when it is producing electric power, so slippage is to be checked first. Second, if the battery light comes on and off; it maybe acting in error. Get a multi-meter and check the battery voltage with car and ignition shut off. With the meter set on 12volt bat, place the black probe on the negative side of battery or ground and the red probe on the positive side of battery. If you get a reading of 12.66 v the battery is being charged and is full. If you get 12.45 you have a 50% charged battery. If less the alternator wiring needs further checking into as there maybe issues with wiring or the alternator itself. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: battery dies while car is running

The alternator is what keeps your car running once it's cranked. It also recharges the battery for the next crank. It's either your alternator can't produce enough power to keep the car running. Your fuel filter is dirty. Your air filter isn't allowing air flow. If it sputters before it dies it could also be the O2 sensor.

I have a 2011 Kia Sorento that just had alternator changed and my battery light will come on and go off sometimes multiple times while driving. Battery is good what could be causing this..


You probably will need a shop to look at and test the charging system. It could be as simple as a loose connection, or something more serious. The newer systems often have the computer, the ecu, controlling the alternator and how much it charges. So it's no longer just either the battery or the alternator being at fault. It depends on the manufacturer and how the system is designed.
I don't know about Kia, but any repair shop could find the information.

Installed new battery and alternator in 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan and still not charging and killing battery.


I would check all connections. Make the belt that spins the alternator is tight. If you can get the vehicle to an advance auto parts or any tech that can test the battery and charging system that would help. They can all so a see if anything is drawing from the battery this will let you know If there is a problem with something draining the battery

Intermittent problems with our windscreen wipers - what can it be?


You could have corrosion in your fuse box. Alternatively get a good battery from someone and drive with it in your car for a day or two. It could be that the battery can't handle multiple electronic device at the same time. Go have a look at the VW Polo site perhaps they may have encountered your problem http://volkswagen-polo-highline.blogspot.com
