They tested the alternator on the car with it running? If so and it was good what was the readings? If they were less than 13 volts it's the alternator, More than 13 volts check fuses in your fuse box, The cover will have all fuses marked.

The alternator is not charging the battery on my 2002 Alero, how do I fix this?


a bad battery would give a wrong judgement of an alternator output. take off your battery and replace with a working one, test your alternator output using a DMM it should read about 12.5 when engine off and 14v when engine start running any figure more or less shows you have a bad alternator or an incorrect input current to the alternator....hope this fixxx it?

My egr valve burnt and has been replaced but my mazda tribute still wont start


Your alternator is not charging the battery. Remove it and have it tested at your local parts store. Fully charge the battery with a charger. If the alternator tests good, reinstall it and start the car. Check the voltage at the battery and also at the alternator on the big charge wire terminal. Report the voltages here for additional troubleshooting steps.

My car will not start unless i get jump , then when going on the road and turn signal lighton the radio will go out for a second or when iturn brakes on


If you need a jump start, your battery is flat.

That means that it no longer holds its charge, or isn't getting charged up properly by the alternator.
Go to a battery shop, they should check it out for free.

Car wouldnt start yesterday jumped it it started tried to start it this morning and wouldnt start again.... altenator???


Once the engine is running the alternator takes over to keep it running while sending a chrge back into the battery to make sure the battery is charged back up enough to start the engine the next time. If the car continued to run for a while after you jumped it, it may not be the alternator.

If you can get it jumped again, let it run for 10 minutes or so, if it continues to run, it's not the alternator, but more likely an issue with the battery.

If the car is running okay once it's started, you may want to go to a local parts store and have them check the battery and alternator with a diagnostic system. Most of them do not charge for this test.

I hope this helps.

1 have a 1986 caddilac deville i have to jump start it everyday it runs fine after the jump start but soon as i cut the car off it wont start anymore until i jump it again what do you think is the problem


Have you checked your battery???
A bad battery will not hold a charge. When you jump it to start it it will then keep running on the power produced by your alternator.The alternator will be trying to charge your battery but will not be able to if your battery is bad.

On my 1998 Toyota Corolla, after it starts and runs fine..you turn the key off and it will not start again without a jump. After a quick jump it starts right away. The battery is only a year old. Is it the...


Check for loose battery terminals. Car will not start without jump because battery is not connected properly. Starter is probably good or car would not start with or without jump. If alternator is bad and not producing current, car would die after running a short while as battery would out of juice and without alternator current the car would die - so probably alternator is good. If connections are all good, get a voltmeter and test the battery voltage - it should be over 12.75 volts. If not, battery is not holding charge.

Won't hold a charge


its the battery. the battery holds the charge and the alternator charges it so when you jump the car it stays running because you alternator is providing power when you shut the car off you have a bad battery that isnt holding the charge needed to start it again.
