2000 Ford Ranger is killing alternators immediately after install


the best way to test an alternator is with a load test-partstores dont do that--battery may still have a bad cell even tho it tested good--an alternator can burn up charging a completely dead batt--make sure batt reads at 12.6volts and no less-----if it reads say at 12.3 its only 50% charged!

Not charging battery


If the battery is filled with acid then it may be that the alternator is bad....I've had to exchange an alternator tree times before getting one that worked properly. All new!

Battery won't stay charged, it is brand new battery, alternator has been checked and it is good, blown BTN 60 watt fuse, on 1994 Mazda Protege.


The 60amp fuse probably is in the circuit between the alternator and the battery. Which would be why the battery is not getting charged.
Someone would need to check for a short in the wiring between the alternator and the battery.

2004 Pontiac Montana -brand new battery, new alternator(not rebuilt). have to jump start and runs for a while then dies some times wont take charge. battery will die not running in a day. very intermi


First, you can't and shouldn't test an alternator by disconnecting the battery cable while the engine is running. You run the risk of cooking the alternator and the computer. Thats how we used to test generators back in the last century.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ? Is the battery charge warning light on ?
There should be a fuseable link between the alternator and the battery that could keep the alternator from charging the battery.
The ignition module would have no effect on the charging system.

My 1998 Pontiac Transport refuses to start even after 15-20 minutes of running on a recharged battery. What could be the problem??


check the charging system. when car is off voltage at battery should be about 12.6 volts. when running, if alternator and the belts are ok should read 14.2 to 14.7 but heres another way to tell if alternator is ok. unhook negative battery cable from battery while car is running,. if car quits, its the alternator or wiring to it. it will run with cable off of battery if alternator is ok.

My pontiac transport cuts out i replaced the fuel pump and the battery goes dead after awhile new battery now while driving it dies like a fuel problem new fuel filter too please help


Check the alternator for voltage output,worn belt and belt tensioner.

A health alternator should be produce 13.6-14.8V.

Any less it will put a drain on the battery.
(example: fuel pump,fans and lights)


Base on what you changed already,I recommend you to


1)inspect the tensioner wear indicator (two arrows,lines or dots) if they coming close the it's time to change the tensioner.

2)check the for worn belt. Look for cracks on the belt.

3)charge up the battery and monitor the voltage.

4)get the alternator check.
Most alternator can go up to 100,000 miles.
Some auto part store has a portable battery + alternator test.

1994 pontiac tran sport 3.8 charging problem altinater good battery good. checked fuses,and connections all good.but still no charge to battery.


Check for blown fusible links near the alternator. Also how was the alternator checked? You should know that it MUST be checked under a load. Stores like Pep Boy's, Auto Zone, and Advance Auto Parts, will check it for free but you have to bring the alternator to them. Confirm all the grounds in both the charging and starting systems. THEY MUST be tight, clean, and corrosion free. If you have doubts about the condition of the battery cables or any other wires or cables in the system change them.
