The battery light in my 91 ford explorer is on. i changed the alternater and the battery, when i boost it, it will run untill i take the booster cables off then it will stall out.

sounds like a bad ground cable or loose cable. also check to make sure the battery cable ends are clean and not corroded or cracked where they make contact to the battery.

Altornator goes bad in 1 day

check ti see that the chassis ground is intact and installed if that is not it check to see if the alternator belt is tracking properly and that the alt. is not out of alignment with the other pulleys.You may also need to have the electrical system checked for a power circuit in the car staying hot after the car is shut off.

How to change a altornator on a 95 nissan maxima

first you need to release the belt tensioner, and remove the belt. Disconnect the battery, and remove electrical plug on aternator. Then simply unbolt the old alternator, bolt in the new one, re-attach the the electrical plug, connect the battery back up, and re-install the belt. FYI this would be a good time to replace the serpentine belt.

2003 Hundia Sante fe Altornator?

It is probably the alternator. I have had alternator's that were bad test good. If the alternator is not fully charging the battery than you will continue to have the issue. I think it is best to go ahead and change the alternator.
