Turn on your car. remove the ground battery terminal and if the car turns off, then theres a problem with the alternator(even though it's new) or the alternator wiring. if it stays on, then the alternator is working. test your battery at the auto parts store to make sure it's good. Now, if the battery is good, then theres a short in the system. See this video on youtube to help you find a short in the system.(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjXt7_gusgM&feature=related)

96 olds cutlass ciera sl wont hold charge with new battery and alternator


Well the charge light means the alternator is not charging the battery.
You would need to get the alternator and circuits tested on the car.
It could be a bad connection somewhere or other wiring problem.

2001 ford explorer sport wont charge


I'm not sure if you have all of the info you need to go forward with this.
The battery may be rated for 800 amps but could have less than 12 volts if the alternator is not charging it.
It could have a dead cell which would keep it from holding a charge.
You would need to check the charge of the battery with a volt meter, then see if the alternator is charging at 14 volts when the engine is running. The battery should be at least 12 volts with the engine off.
The problem could be in the wiring from the key switch or dash gauges back to the alternator.

Battery light is on.wont hold a charge.starts after hooking up battery charger.thanks


If battery light is on while engine is running, then the charging system is bad. That is, you will need a new alternator. If the battery is a couple years old, you may have now stressed it a lot also. Expect it to show signs of failure too, quite soon if not already. First thing is to change out the alternator. Put the battery on charge for a while too. Then after new alternator, see if you have weak starting problems over next week or so.

My honda civic wont start at first i thought it was the alternator so i went and picked one up from pick yah part and got it changed and the new alternator is charging my battery but when i try to start...


the problem is either in the batterie or alternator. junkyard alternators are a 50/50 chance of working. you should go to your local parts store and have them do a batterie/ alternator test. they dont require you to take them out the car.

Sounds like you may have bad battery make sure your battery is getting the charging voltage of 13,8 volts or higher check it with a volt meter and see if the alternator is working right I've gotten bad alternators one can never be to sure than elminate that problem and move onto the battery make sure its good. it should have 12.6 volts or higher after it has been fully charged or you think its charged . than last check your relays and your fuses make sure there all working good luck
