Try cleaning your grounds, and connections at the battery, if one of these connections gets hot and builds up resistence this can cause the problem, the same is true of the alternator.

WHY IS MY 1994 CHEVY CHEYENNE DRIVE FINE ON THE FREEWAY BUT IN TOWN IT WILL DIE ON ME AT STOP LIGHTS.


I would check your battery connections. Clean them even if they look ok. I had a 93 olds that did that and it was a battery connection being dirty. Also check your fuel filter(replace it if you can) and the spark plug wires/cap and rotor can cause this. Low RPM at a stop light lets the voltage drop too much on the alternator and the battery isn't helping since its dirty so the engine dies. Then when you start it, it pulls enough amps to bypass the dirt to start.

My 2001 chevy impala dies while i am driving it. i have replaced the battery, the alternator, and the starter. my battery light stays on even with a brand new alternator installed, then the car dies and...


Look for a big red wire thats connected to the big post on the starter.Follow that wire up to the alternator. That wire should have battery voltage there all the time. If it does not, check that the fusible link, which is in that wire is not burnt or broken.

Alternator on 1989 Chevy k1500 4 by 4 had checked its good putting out 14 volts but not charging battery cleaned grounds put new terminals checked plug only has one brown wire


The brown wire goes to the gauge or warning light on the dash, and it activates the alternator when you start the truck. You should have battery voltage on the large wire with the key off, and on both wires when the engine is running.

My battery to my 84 chevy caprice is not charging. i got a new batery and altenator but it still wont charge.i have to jump it off to get it to start. i dont even know where the voltage regulator is...


the voltage regulator is built into the alternator,have you check the alternator connector for damage or corrosion check with a test light for voltage at the red wire that plugs into the alternator that is in the 2 wire plug connector as well as check the large red wire for voltage as this wire is the feed wire from the battery.you don`t say if this is a new or used alternator.if you have a voltmeter that is the best way to check for the proper amount of voltage at the test sites.the battery must have a minimum of 12.6 volts to start with higher is better.to test the voltage regulator need the engine running and you need a voltmeter to tell properly if it is working.at the back of the alternator their is a hole that looks like the letter D this is where you use something like a cotterpin and insert it into the hole you should feel a tab,push lightly on the tab and ground the cotterpin to the side of the alternator using the voltmeter you should see the voltage start to rise and hear it start to charge.the battery voltage and the feed wire at the alternator as well as the smaller red wire at the plug connector should be the same.charging voltage should be about 14.5 volts.

You either have a bad plug wire or have cracked one of the new plugs while installing them. Try watching under the hood while someone else accelerates the engine to locate the noise.
Good luck dont forget to rate.
