How do you if the alternator is bad

in my experience when your car is dead and you get a boost it will go dead again in a very short time. this means your alternator is not charging your battery so it needs replaced. boosting your car and letting it run should charge up even a weaker"battery if you have to boost everytime you shut the car off your alternator is toast"and it will kill your battery as well if you don't replace. it hope this helps

Battery light is on, battery is good, I'm thinking voltage regulator, maybe the alternator

The battery light comes on when there is low voltage in the charging system. You can verify this by checking voltage at the battery with the engine running. You should see more than 13.5 volts and I suspect you will see around 12 volts. The usuall cause for this is the alternator and since the voltage regulator is internal to the alternaor it would make good sense to replace the entire alternator will a quality remanufactured alternator.

Have a 1991 or 1995 Intrepid and car died, tried to boost the car gave it power than died, we noticed corrosion on the posts so cleaned the posts. (Noticed lights and power was coming back on when...

did it stay running when connected to the car giving the boost? if so then the alternator is not charging the electrical system, get it serviced or replaced.

Car starts when boosted but wont start by itself after tuning it off. Is it the battery or alternator?

It could be either. The alternator feeds electrical charge to the battery. Easiest way to tell is spend the 100 bucks and replace the battery. Even if your alternator is good, some batteries will not hold a charge even when boosted.

If that doesn't work try to get a used or rebuilt alternator.
Personally I would take it to a shop and have them check it first. You could have a solenoid issue and your battery and alternator are fine.
There could aslo be an electrical short in the wiring harness that is causing a draw on your battery.

Jumped battery and car runs for a few minutes then lights just fade and car stalls, what is going on?

Could be couple of things,
A bad battery not holding a charge, should be a little over 12 volts with engine off.
A bad alternator not charging, should put out between 14 to 15 volts with engine running.
If there is an advanced auto near you, take them there, they will check them for free.

Charging problem

If the alternator is wired incorrectly it will kill the alternaor. you need to verify you have the alternator wired correctly. Also, make sure none of the wires have been fraid and are rubbing against metal objects.

Lights up when turned on,but repeated clicking when you try to start it

dose it start when you get a boost off, and if it dose you need to check your battery connectors they may need replacing, and if thats not the problem make sure that your alternator is charging your battery and if non of these are the problem you need a starter.
