03 vw gti vr6 24 valve-check engine light is on and it seems like the altenator is gone but it will start and stay running with a boost. we just brought it to a shop and they said that the altenator was...


Did the shop actually connect a scan tool and check the diagnostic code to see if it is at all related to the charging system? A bad alternator or battery could certainly cause the "battery" light to come on, but it's less likely to cause a check engine light. It is possible though, especially if the battery voltage is low and the alternator is not working to keep the charging system at the correct voltage once the engine is running.

Battery light and abs light is on and battery wont stay charged, new battery and altenator is good


This sounds like a bad alternator , maybe it charges at times and other times it does not, check connections to battery and at alternator, also make sure all fuse are good.

Saab 93 1.9 tid warning battery not charging car died whilst driving charged battery at home car now starting lights all out is this battery prob or alternator?


The easiest way to check is with the car running, disconnect the positve side of the battery, if the car dies, then it is the altenator, if the car keeps running then it is the battery. If you have a volt ohm meter, check the chrge going to the battery you should get between 12 and 14 volts if it is lower than 12 you have an altenator issue. the altenator should always produce enough to charge the battery and run the car at the same time, if not then the battery wears down.

I have a 2000 infiniti i30. The battery light came on. I have 12.4 volts when the car is not running and it goes down to 11.8 volts running. i checked the voltage at the altenator and it was right at 12...


Good Evening, It sure does sound like an alternator issue you should be charging well over 13 almost 14volts depending on the condition of your battery and the load you have running on it. You are on the right path and did all the right things to come up with your solution. Another thing to do is to still get it checked once you get it off and get your battery checked to be sure you do not have a bad cell or anything. Your local autozone and advance auto parts stores do these things free of charge. Hope this helps.

My vw touran loses power for short periods


Runs good most of the time? Doesit matter how full the gas tank is? If the power is low how long doesit stay low? a second or two. or even less? when the power comes back on is it as good as ever? Are you talking about driving power or electrical power? the electrical power is made by the altenator and the pulley has a clutch that can go bad and the charge comes and goes. a good shop can change just the clutch. A bad battery can make the altenator clutch out so it doesn't fail charging a battery that won't charge. get the battery tested. Most auto prts stores can test the battery in the car for no charge. Engine power can be check engine light related, Is the check engine light on? Exhaust pipe bent closed or stopped up? oil change up to date? The oil can break down and sludge, when it does the engine starves for oil and partly seizzes. Low oil level can do it too. VW's are bad about sludging the oil does it more if the oil is'nt changed often enough.

Battery light stays on


start engine and get someone to hold rpm at 1500 then disconnect battery and if engine stops replace altenator ,if it keeps going then warning light control is U/S but to repair will nesitate removing the altenator and stripping it to change the brush /regulator unit and this can cost nearly as much as a recon altenator ,if it charges then leave it alone it could run for 50.000 miles or more like this

Battery not charging


I would check the altenator again. if you didnt disconnect the battery and a spark shot off while installing the new starter it could have decharged the spool on the inside of the altenator to where the spool no longer charges. if you have the altenator checked for consistant charging and it comes up good check the relay for the altenator it most like will have messed up the relay. to make a long solution short check the relay for the altenator it will be in the relay box under the hood.

Low volts light stays on


new altenator or junkyard one.if new return it, if junkyard just ignore light as its odds on they will not change it .the red light is caused by the difference in the voltage between input and output voltages .Quick test --start engine and run at 1500rpm disconnect battery and turn everything electrical on and if engine stops then change altenator if it stays running then altenator is OK
