If all wiring is intact and connections are good, it's a good bet that the regulator has failed. But, it's part of the computer (makes as much sense to me as sewing your socks to your pants, but that's where it is). There is a "work around" for that by usnig an older style chrysler regulator but it will turn the check engine light on and in many places it won';t pass inspection like that (though it has nothing to do with emissions). I'd tell you how to do it but really can't remember except that the field wire gets disconnected from the computer and the regulator gets attached. (I know, not real helpful but last one I did was a long time ago)
Probably your best option is to get a computer from a scrapyard and not mess with it.

Battery not charging showing on the display for the second time after I changed the battery once and the altenator twice. What could the problem be?

Take a good look at the alternator plug. The tabs on the inside should all look the same. Also a lot of corrosion can cause no contact. Replace the plug if necessary.

yes ideas.your altenator may be bad,or the belts broken to the altenator. look for yourself to see.if the belts are all on,then charge your battery and take your car to an autozone or advance auto parts store and they will check both battery and the altenator for free. if both check good,which it sounds like a bad altenator to me.they will charge your battery for free also,which then,you'll have enough power on the battery to drive back home,or a close repair facility. they will not[autozone or advance auto parts] replace,remove your altenator,but they can check it while it's still on the car.if it turns up bad,they can charge your battery fully,which with no headlights on,you can drive about 25miles with your battery FULLY charged.thank you for choosing

Battery not charging light comes on

Auto parts stores will test your altenator and battery for free in the car or out. If the battery is good and not charging and the fuses are good, then you most likely have a bad altenator.

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.

Altenator is not charging the battery

sir , the altenator has 3 wires at the connector correct ? a white/red , a green/white and a black , the white/red wire is involved with a 10 amp fuse to do with the charging meter / gauge , the fuse located behind left side of dash .. the green/white wire is is involved with 2 fuses , a 10 amp ECU fuse and a 25 amp Main fuse located at left rear of engine compartment main box , and the black wire is involved with a main 80 amp fuse at the main box also . both of these 2 wires end up at the positive side of the battery , please verify all these fuses are good . if they are indeed good , then open wiring would be next step verify continuity on black and the white/green wires . i would post a link to diagram but autozone repair info site is down at this time . if ya need more help , please ask .

well for starters your altenator is bad because what it is dolinging is over charging the battery hence why it boiled off the water/acid in the battery. the regulater is intergrated into the altenator. there is not a short because numberone your car would not start and two your battery would explode. i never test a battery or altenator at a store like napa or Oreilly's because they are not mechanics ......they are parts guys. your altenator should charge the battery at no more than 14 volts and the average is 13.5 volts. you need to replace the altenator the reason why you are losing a charge is be cause as the car is running the battery is being discharged because the regulator is defective in the altenator. please rate this thanks
