Fairly common concern but before we replace anyting else can you do a volt drop test to confirm the alt/bat wire is good

using a DVOM, (digital Volt Ohm Meter), hook one side to the POSITIVE battery post, with the other DVOM lead, hook to the large nut on the alternator.

Measure DC Volts with the car on, engine running
Anything greater than .5v = bad wire(replace and retest)

2012 jetta battery ligh is on


it suggests your charging system isn't working correctly. Check your battery terminals and your alternater is charging. If your lights brighten when you rev the engine your alternater is charging so could be bad battery terminals or a loose connection

Battery and abs light come on then car dies new battery and alternater


Take an have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Guessing an replacing parts isn't the way . The charging system on your vehicle is computer controlled by the PCM - engine computer,. Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop.

Hi,my jetta battery light came on then it died so i put new battery in started fine but ran for only a few minutes and everything started to dim(lights,displays)then it just shut down.waited a few minutes...


sounds like your alternator is not charging the battery. with vehicle running take measure the voltage of the battery f it is higher then 13volts it is charging. if you do not have a volt meter remove the ground cable while the vehicle is running and the vehicle should stay running.

F350 2004 6.0 brand new alternator not charging new batteries , battery light stays on , what could I be missing?


Just cause its a new alternator does mean it should work. I would check the charge when running cause it could just be a bad alternator.

New Alternater will not charge batery


When you touch the hot wire to the manifold you may have damaged your alternator. Take your Blazer to your local car service center such as Advance auto and have them run a test to make sure your rebuilt alternator is charging. Most centers will do this free of charge.

Sometimes alternater does not charge battery


Drive the car to the auto parts store and have them test the battery and alternator for proper charge.  You probably just bought a dud, even though they are new.  Doesn't happen much but does happen.
