Check the harness from the solenoid on the fender going to the harnes for a blown fusible link or wires broke at the factory crimp,large black wire with an orange tracer.if thats ont it you may need a new alternator plug or the charge light bulb in the dash is blown.hope this helps.

Charging system failed. Why is new alternator output ranging between 11 1/2 and 12 1/2 volts?


11 1/2 to 12 1/2 is not charging . That's less then battery state of charge , Battery stat of charge should be 12.6 volts , when charging with a volt meter you should see 13.1 to 14.1 volt at the battery posts . Is there a battery symbol lit on your instrument cluster ? Is there battery B+ voltage at the wires hooked to the alternator How to Test an Alternator

2012 Grand Caravan. How do I turn the battery light off after installing a new battery?


Test the alternator. The battery light is for the charging system. Once the charging system is working with the engine running, the light should go off. If your light stays on with engine running, the alternator may need service or replacement.

To test the charging system, just put a voltmeter on the battery with engine running. The voltmeter should register at least 13.5 volts- alternator is charging. If you only show battery voltage with engine running, like 12.2-12.8 volts, the alternator or charging system is not working. The battery light should be on to signify this.

Battery light on.. new battery installed..still on


The Alternator may not be charging properly.
If you have a handheld voltmeter, put it on the battery when the engine is running, it should show 13.8 volts if the alternator is working.

You can take your alternator to autozone and they will test it for free

New alternator and batery still not charging


Not enough information. When was the alternator changed and was the battery fully charged before trying to start after installing new alternator. If not the alternator could have burnt up. Have electrical system checked free at Advance Auto.

Battery Light is On


The alternator is not charging the battery. Could be alternator, voltage regulator (which is usually in the alternator) , dirty/loose connections. First I would inspect all relevant electrical connections, clean & tighten. If no change -- replace alternator.

But be sure to fully charge the battery before you run the new alternator (follow alternator installation instructions).

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!
