It could be a loose negative cable or corrosion INSIDE the cable.
There is a main alt fuse in a black plastic case under the hood marked "FUSES" check that.
I would need to know what the alt is putting out at idle and at driving speed.
I would also need to know the battery state of charge.
Make sure your alt belt is not slipping.
Please let me know what you find.

Town country alternator

Check connections to Alternator and Battery. If probably connected, have someone check the Alternator output. If still good, check fuse.

No idea why you would ever go to a dealer in the first place

You see what they charge & you don't trust them either

Get the vehicle out of there

Don't you have a long time local shop that you've used for years?

2004 f250 diesel with dual alternaters & batteries. Alternaters & batteries have both been changed & have had 3 ford dealers try to fix it but will quit charging ti the point the engine dies.

Just a thought.......... If the alternator is not grounded properly to the chasis , it will not charge , and the charge light probably will not come on either. Check for loose , or corroded ground wire or strap.

2001 Chrysler Town & Country, 129K miles, may need alternator pulley and key. Anyone have experience with this? Will I end up needing a new alternator after all? And what's a reasonable charge in a...

may be better off just replacing the whole alternator unless just the pulley is bad. If just pulley is bad should be a simple fix & fairly cheap as well. Are you having a charging issue? If so stop by your local "Advance Auto" where they'll test your whole charging system for free & probably refer you to a good mechanic as well! Good Luck!

2000 Chrysler Town & Country smelling fuel

check the fuel filter connections first. If all ok, have a mechanic check it. If there is an evaporative leak, the check engine light should be on.
