Hi check the earth wire at the battery and also the wires to the rear of the starter motor and altenator, make sure they have good contacts and are not touching each other. also make sure the main battery earth wire has a good contact to the body.

It sounds like the altenator is charging but the charge is not getting back to the battery. make sure the altenator belt is tight.

Im not 100% if this model has a fuseable link, bt your along the right lines something is not connecting somewhere.

I have found this fault is most commonly a melted wire but they can be difficult to find. Sorry I couldnt be more specific. It is difficult without seeing the car.

Regards

Dan

1996 cadillac eldorado new battery new alternator still wont charge


Hey Jeff. Never assume that "new" alternator is good, but lets assume it is.The actuator wire that goes into the field of the alternator HAS to be hot with the key in run position. (both wires will be). If not, it wont charge. If those two are hot with the key on, the alternator is bad.

Not getting charge out of alternator and it is good alternator wiring seems to be in good shape what else could cause problem relays how can you tell if good


If you're not reading a charge(13+ volts)at the battery, but you have voltage output from the alternator. There are 2 fuseable links, 1 is in line with the red battery wire from the stud on the
alternator to the starter. This link can be bypassed by running a wire from the alt. stud to the pos+
post on the battery. The other fusable link is in line with the red stator wire from the regulator plug.
Check these links and repair or replace if needed. Hope this helps.

Click on the link.
The diagram shows generator with internal voltage regulator and with external voltage regulator, at the moment, I don't know which one you have?
The bat terminal at the generator should be hot even with the key off, is it, use a test light. If no voltage either the fusible link is faulty or the wiring circuit to battery +. You can see fusible links in diagram.
Could be other issues, the generator probably needs excite voltage or it won't work. The excite voltage comes from charge indicator circuit. Does the charge lamp on the dash work?

Chase your return hot wire from your alternator to your battery and vice versa, there will be a fusible link, (larger wire) that will look slightly bent, then reattach wire with new to provide proper voltage flow, get back to me with any questions...I'M HERE TO HELP!!!

My truck wont start the autnadior works butits as if batterty wont stay chargeed please help


Is the alternator putting out 13-14 volts when running, if it's below, then it won't be putting out enough to charge your battery, if it's above, then it's overcharging and killing your battery... you should also check the battery and if it's over 5 years old, it's recommended to be replaced...
