Hi! May I ask if the battery was replaced? Even the alternator is new but the battery is faulty, the battery wont take the charge from the alternator which may cause failure on charging. Please do replace the battery and it will resolve the problem. Hope this helps and have a good one!

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.

My 1987 dodge w 150 wont hold a charge ive changed the alernator battery as well as the voltage regulator. when i charge the battery it holds a charge for about 5 to 6 starts


Could be a short. Have you checked the voltage at the battery with the car running? Is it over 14 volts?

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5925550-dead_battery_troubleshooting . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

New altenator new battery but battery light stays on and car wont start without a jump and then dies while driving after a few minutes. i drive an 89 acura legend


Hi!!
Your best bet is to remove the battery or the negative battery cable, charge it and drive your vehicle to an AutoZone, Checkers or similar Autoparts store to have your charging system checked. If the engine is running, even if you disconnect the negative battery cable it should stay running, if it dies, the alternator is not working, probably the voltage regulator. If you just bought the alternator, try to take the vehicle to that place so they can check it. If you don't think the car would make it to the auto parts store. Remove the alternator and the battery to have them tested. It is not unusual that an alternator fails when just out of the box. Good Luck!!

Changed altenator and it wont charge the battery we changed cables battery tested good just not getting charge back to the battery


You may have a new alternator that was built or rebuilt incorrectly. Take it back & have them test it at the suppliers. Good luck!

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.

02 maxima battery wont stay charged. Took to auto zone to have battery and alternator checked and they say=its fine. purchased new battery and three days later it was dead/Altenator is charging at 12.9


that seems very, very low. almost what the battery voltage is supposed to be. actually i would say that's not charging and you need to replace the alternator. normal voltage output is 13.5-15 volts

Check your battery cables and terminals. If they are ok, check your altenator because it might not be charging the battery properly.

1997 chevy 1500 wont stay runing


Ok, first, you need a new altemator. When you pulled off the battery cable with the truck running . it caused a voltage spike and fried the voltage regulator, which is internal on this particular altenator. If you want to check to see if the altenator is charging, use a volt meter.

Since it wouldn't start after you put the new altenator on, it could be one of two things, either you got a bad altenator which happens sometimes or, you have a weak battery and the altenator is tryng to charge itself to death.

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
