Did you test the new alternator before putting it in. May be bad. Once you put it in turn the key and it self energizes unlike the older cars like vw. So if you forgot a wire or a plug to the alternator if it's good. Once the battery is connected it should be all set. So if that's not the problem you have to start looking for bad connections or melted wire and shorted a online fuse. Check your fuse box for any bad fuses.

Why does,nt alternator charge the battery?


You need to check the small connector that plugs into the back of the alternator. One of the pins will have a power supply when the ignition is in the on position. It could be 12v or 5v so a voltmeter should be used to detect it. If no power check fuses. Possible bad charge fuse or wiring to the alternator. If power supply is there, possible faulty alternator ( even though it's new )

Charge the battery use a volt meter an test for B+ voltage at the places i mention . No check engine light ? DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored .

your charging system should show 14+v at the battery when running-it doesn't matter what the battery is if alternator is not putting out -cheers Denny

Battery good alternator good could it be pcm on 2000 dodge grand caravan


Using a volt meter, you need to measure the voltage across the the batt. terminals when the engine is running. you should read near 14.5 volts DC (or more) if the alternator(charging circuit) is working. WARNING be real careful of moving fans,belts and hot parts.

I have a dodge caravan 2002 it wont charge put on new alternator, and computer. it still wont charge. the wire on the back of the alternator is not showing any fire?


Why do you feel it isn't charging. Are you going off of a voltage ereadiing? I ask because if it is reading 12 v at the battery , Do not run it very long. The lower the voltage the higher the amps. An Alternator will ocweheat and self destruct if it is working at its high limit for 15 minutes or so. A heavy charge iis normal for 30 seconds or so to make up for the starting drain. But, should show a gradual rise within seconds. An alternator is for battery charge maintenance only and should never be used to charge a dead battery. A dead battery can an will over tax the alternator for too long. A defective battery will do the same thing and it is usually why you have to change the alternator in the first place. So, If your battery is dead or extremely lpw, it should be charged with a charger Do not put a new or rebuilt Aly. sgainst a possible bad battery. It costs nothing to have your batt load tested by a auto parts store. Good Luck=Ned-.

2002 Dodge Neon wont start


Check the battery connections. If they are dirty, corroded, the lights will work, but there won't be enough connection to crank. Also, if the battery is getting old, it could be going out as well.
Clean the battery terminals with a batt terminal brush- also clean the cable ends.
Charge or jump start your car and run for a while.
