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.

Truck is draining charge and not charging battiers


I just went thru same thing with my 2003 f-350 diesel. I hooked up my horse Trailor and drove to Von's parked went in came back out and truck was dead. I tried to jump it didn't work. Then over next two hours two tow truck Drivers hooked up to both batteries full power charge direct to my truck and would not start.
End story required two new batteries alternator and cilanoid discussed above. In other post. Also contributing to the cause was really badly coroded cables they looked good at the connection point but wher discovered to be coroded inside the tubing just above the end connections so bow it has all been replaced and I have had no trouble since. Hope this helps. Tanya

Replaced battery. still would not start. Cleaned treminal of all corrision. cranked fine. however 1 day later would not start. jump started . drove a couple of miles but when I turned on lights, engine...


Sounds like a bad alternator. Drained your battery and when you turned on the lights it took all the power left in your battery. When you drain a battery down that far, they are real hard to jump, and coupled with the alternator, the car is not producing enough current to start and stay running.

I would take the alternator off and take it to oyur local auto parts store to be tested. If bad, replace it and charge the battery fully before starting. Then check voltage at battery with motor running. Should be 13.2 -14 Volts DC. If not, you may have a bad battery cable or blown fusible link. (especially that if the alternator tests good).....Mike

1989 Toyota, battery was dead two days ago, took it to a garage they put a new battery in and sent it out the door. Drove it a few times no problems. Last night driving home, engine light came on...


I'd take it to any good parts store (autozone, advance, etc..) and have them do a FREE charging system test and load test your battery. Almost sounds like your alternator is not charging or starting to go bad (not charging at full capacity)

Our car just dies out all of a sudden and it sounds like the car wants to start. Then we boost it for awhile maybe 30 mins to an hour to finally start then it will start good for a couple of days. Then do...


Its dying because the battery is not being charged, and it takes power to run the ignition pak to run motor and electrical systems. I would have the alternator checked out as that seems to be the most obvious problem,only other solution is battery will not take a full charge. usually if the alternator is charging it will supply the power to run the car, but if the battery wont take a charge then it will not have enough power to start the car or run the voltage that the ignition needs to operate. solution is bad battery or bad alternator.

yes, a bad alternator. If your alternator was working, the car wouldn't need the jumpers to keep running. Take the alternator off and have it tested at your local parts chain. Let me know if you need instructions or have other questions.

if battery and alternator are good. i would check the wire from alternator to battery, they sometimes have a fusable link in the wire, that burns out. also check fuse box there may be a fuse and it may be blown! at battery with car running should be at least, 14 to 14.2. at battery when car is off should be about 12.8 to 13 volts. have a good day !!

when you say car lost power bought a new battery.sound like alternator not charging battery.with car running your voltage at battery should be 13.5 volts or 14.5 volts it not alternators need replacing.have garage replace alternator if faulty because 1993 to 1994 cars if you disconnect battery car would lose memory causing car not to idle.the car will stall out at a stop light or stop sign whole lot.it would relearn itself but the stalling out dangerous around a lot of traffic.
