Make sure you have 12v at the big wire on the alternator. if you do not then the fuse for it popped. If you do then its possblle the comper failed since the charging system is computer controlled.

1993 Mercury Topaz red light came on that looks like a battery. Put another altanator in and battery but light still on ?


must be a bad wire if you put a new battery and alternator in it. Are you sure the battery and alternator are good. One way to test the alternator is to run the engine and disconnect the battery [one post] while the car is running. If the car keeps running, the alternator is good. If engine cuts out and shuts off, alternator is bad

Sluggish & electrical problems after new alternator & battery put in


Sounds like the new alternator is not charging the battery. Once the battery drops below a certain level the car can't keep its components (on board computer) running. The ignition is now running off the battery which is fading. Soon the car won't be running at all.

As already suggested, check belt and new alternator.

I have a 1984 toyota not charging battery, i put on a new Alternator ,i took postive cable off battery it dies.


A Toyota will not run with the battery disconnected, it doesn't mean an alternator problem only a voltage and load test can determine that, it is unique to S\some Japanese cars and light trucks.

My 1997 nissan hardbody charges but not enough to run it I have new alternator and batt wat else could be wrong


Put a voltmeter on the battery when it is running. There should be around 13.5 volts for a proper reading.
A little confused by your request: the battery does not power the car when it is running. The alternator supplies all the power to run everything. The battery is only used to start the car, and is then re-charged by the alternator when running. If the alternator is not putting out enough to run the car, then there might be a loose connection somewhere. Check all battery and alternator connections for clean, tight connections. If good, have the new alternator tested. Sometimes you can get a defective one.

New battery. abs, battery and service engine lights come on. all headlights and tails flicker and car dies and wont start. jump it let it warm up and doesnt do it for awhile. then at some point it does it...


These are all signs of a bad alternator. The car is running off of only the battery. The alternator charges the battery and keeps the car running. When the alternator quits charging the car will run fine until the battery dies. Then you can jump the battery and charge it, and the car will run fine until all of the electronics and lights run the battery down again.

Battery keeps draining new battery and alternaltor


Sounds like an alternator. When it goes bad, your car is forced to run off of the battery , which wont last long depending on what all you have running .
The alternator keeps your battery charged after your car starts.
Try replacing the alternator and let me know if you have any more problems.
