If the battery light does not come on that doesn't mean the alternator is good.

If when you first turn the ignition key on and the car is not running, the battery light should go on to test the alternator. This is wired directly to the alternator circuitry.

When you start the car and it is running, this light should go out in a few seconds.

This indicates that it is charging the battery or supplying enough voltage to the car's system to keep it running.

If the battery light never goes on, the alternator is bad.

wow if your battery is that old i would get a different one but you can have the battery and alternator tested for free at a auto parts store they can tell you if its junk or not but thats why your having them problems when your alternater spins it charges the battery if the battery is no good it wont hold a charge and you car will die now it the alternater is bad it will not keep the battery charged and your car will die.

Be sure to charge the battery, otherwise you might smoke the new alternator(not made to charge a dead batt.). Have the batt. load tested. Check batt. cable ends for corrosion.

What is the proper capacity of the ford explorer 2006 Battery?


Hi the battery is a 12volt battery the alternater that charges the battery puts out about 13.5volts back into the battery to ensure it is charging fast enough so as it can power everything as well as charging the battery but the battery is a 12volt battery you can get high power 12v batts if your using alot of electrics on the car etc.

Hopefully that covers what you asked let me know if you need further assistance ok

1996 dodge wont start keeps draing batteries


sounds like an alternater problem. the batt is not charging and is only running off the batt untill it runs out. check the wires ect on the alt and if that doesnt work, get a salvaged alt.

Battery indicator switching off and on and running lights with it


Your alternater is boarding a plane out of town. Actually it's the regulator built into the alt. Have your battery and alternator both tested. High charging voltage can burn up yor battery and lights. Here it is in a nutshell. The lower the voltage the higher the charging amps. At 15 volts the alternater is not charging the battery but simply pouring out voltage.. Have your battery load tested because it tell the alt wat to do, Have the alternater test to see if it has a comprehension problem. IFirst, make sure your batt cables are clean and tight.. Especially the negative cable.Good luck
