Battery light comes on and off and computer says service charging system and battery not charging sometimes when I first start the engine its fine but after awhile battery light comes on and battery not...


what you need to do is check the altenator for voltage it should be between 13 and 15 volts this is easily done with a standard volt meter check it at the altenator witch is located right on top of the engine on the back of the altenator there is a thick red wire that is where you want to put the positive and just put the black wire of the volt meter on the case of the altenator and check the reading it sounds like the altenator is bad there is also a fuse you should check your owners manual for location of the fuse also have your battary checked this should help ant questions just ask me

71 c10 not staying charged... new battery alternator fuses good and new voltage regulator


Maybe it wasn't running long enough to charge up the battery?
Stop trying to jump it, when you are having problems with it dying, take the battery off and have it charged. And/or buy a $20 voltmeter to see what the battery shows. If it says less than 12 volts, it is discharged, and needs charging. A good battery that is not run down should have at least 12.5 volts. A new battery that is charged should have very close to 13 volts, maybe 12.8 volts.
When you have the truck running, check the alternator for charging. You put the voltmeter right on the battery and check it again. This time, with truck running, battery should show at least 13.5 volts. That shows the alternator is working. A good alternator will put out about 13 or 14 volts-the regulator will keep it from going any higher to prevent problems, like a melting battery or electrical parts burning out.
I would say get the charging system working right, then address the problem of dying at stop lights. That could be a carburetor problem, if the alternator is working.

2012 chevy cruze no charge


Disconnect battery while car is running. If car dies altenator is bad. With car not running check battery with volt meter. Should read 12 to 12.46 without engine running. Start car and check battery with volt meter, should read 13 to 13.50. If less than 12 with engine running then altenator is no good.

I have a 99 Pontiac grand am gt that has a good alternator that isn't charging the battery. The wires are connected correctly and the connections are clean and the battery terminals are clean as well....


Have you taken the battery to autozone or someplace and had the battery tested? I would find if you know the alternator is good it must be the battery itself. Might want to try that if you havent already. Good Luck Bro~

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.

Alternator only putting out 12 volts into bettery


Altenator should put out at least 13.8-14.2 volts at idle. If not either the altenator is bad or not getting the signal to turn on. More than likely a bad alternator though.

Battery or altenator


with the engine idling, check the voltage at the battery terminals. if its between 13 and 14.6 volts the alternator is probably ok. If its below 13V you need a new alternator. above 15V same thing.
Why did u think it needed repair? is your battery not holding a charge?
