I believe the rebuilt one is not good too. If the battery light stays on it means that the system is not charging. Did you connect all the wires the same way

I had my alternater rebuilt and dash lights flash on and off


You either have a lose connection or the alternater is not working. If you start the truck and then disconnect the battery and the truck stops running then the alternater is no good.

Youre alternater probably put out too much votlage, the tranny is probably not the problem its probly the wires running to and from it, and they are probably fried, or one of the computers is fried

Hi,my jetta battery light came on then it died so i put new battery in started fine but ran for only a few minutes and everything started to dim(lights,displays)then it just shut down.waited a few minutes...


sounds like your alternator is not charging the battery. with vehicle running take measure the voltage of the battery f it is higher then 13volts it is charging. if you do not have a volt meter remove the ground cable while the vehicle is running and the vehicle should stay running.

F350 2004 6.0 brand new alternator not charging new batteries , battery light stays on , what could I be missing?


Just cause its a new alternator does mean it should work. I would check the charge when running cause it could just be a bad alternator.

New Alternater will not charge batery


When you touch the hot wire to the manifold you may have damaged your alternator. Take your Blazer to your local car service center such as Advance auto and have them run a test to make sure your rebuilt alternator is charging. Most centers will do this free of charge.

GAUGES AND RADIO TURNS OFF FOR ABOUT 15 SECs


I had the same problem on my Dodge Caravan. When driving, all of a sudden the gauges would flake out and all the dummy lights would come on but car would remain running. Checked the battery and the alternator, both were fine. I finally figured out that it was the battery. Funny, the post that goes inside the battery had come loose. I was able to pull it out. Once I replaced the battery, the problem went away.
