Bad alternator, bad battery. If you're still running the original battery, it's more than likely the culprit. Take the car, or just the battery, to a shop and have it tested.

Intermittent charging


Generally that indication implies generator failure. Generator failure can come in multiple forms. A faulty ground will cause the generator not to charge and potentially burn it up. A severed phase wind (remember, your alternator is really a three-phase generator with a six pulse front end rectifier set) will cause the light to intermittently come on along with weak charging output. A voltage regulator failure will cause zero field current in the rotor. A brush failure will also cause a generator failure light to come on and stay on. A rectifier failure (any of the six) will cause the generator not to charge properly and turn on the MIL and generator failure indicator (looks like a battery). The condition of the battery can also cause generator failure, if the battery is defective (buckled plates, weak electrolyte, low water, etc.) it will place a very high load on the generator continuously, causing it to 'full field' the rotor which can cause the rotor to overheat and fail. Never run a generator without the battery terminals connected as this will cause it to fail quite spectacularly. Do not attempt to verify output of the generator with the battery terminal leads disconnected.

If generator failure is indeed the cause, find out why. Generators rarely fail. When they do, it usually is caused by poor ground connections, corroded battery terminals, high continuous loads, electrical faults and poorly-wired ancillary equipment, such as head units, amplifiers, inverters, etc. Always check all these out when replacing the generator. Never run a generator without the battery terminals connected as this will cause it to fail quite spectacularly.

Fluctuating voltage meter


Alternator maybe charging , but not enough to keep the battery charged which is causing the battery to drop charge. Most likely it's the voltage regulator inside the alternator. but regardless the whole alternator will have to be replaced. This will eventually cause the new battery cells to go bad.

Alternator is good, battery is good but battery isnt holding a charge


Confirm the battery test...a bad cell causes a run down in the charge...how old is the battery? A slightly swollen battery on the sides is also an indicator of a bad cell. Confirm the alternator test...this is a free service (on your car) at most parts stores...I have seen a rare starter with a "short" that slowly causes a good battery to loose its charge. Hope this helps.

1997 kia sportage not starting but will start as soon as jumper cables are put on. I have a lot of corroison around battery post and clamp. They were cleaned a couple months ago and now is covered again


corrision is caused by battery gases .chances are the battery is no good because when engine is running the charging sences the battery is low on charge and is litterly boiling the battery fluid causing heavy corrosion you can test my theory by letting car run and smell around the battery.that should help with the why. also charging system could be sending full charge to battery at all times and might be the problem why battery is bad.replace battery and test charging system.new baery needs to be fully charged to make a correct test
if that helps let me know

I have a mazda astina just recently the charge battery light has lit and plenty electricians have tried fixing the problem but they dont know what is causing the problem cos they say that then altenator is...


Is the battery running down as you drive? You didn't mention anything about having to have the battery charged. If you charge the battery with a battery charger, does the light go out?

Battery light on.. new battery installed..still on


The Alternator may not be charging properly.
If you have a handheld voltmeter, put it on the battery when the engine is running, it should show 13.8 volts if the alternator is working.

You can take your alternator to autozone and they will test it for free

Dead battery...was told to keep power to the engine when changing battery or it would cause problems to the gauges, etc. Is this true?


If your hooking up a battery charger you can attach it to your battery without removing anything. I would not have your engine running while your charging it cause that doesn't make sense to be using your battery and charging it at the same time. You can also remove the battery from the car if you wish to isolate the battery. be sure to remove to negative cable first otherwise you could cause a short and that could lead to all kinds of problems. Not really sure where your friends got there info but your engine already doesn't have power cause your battery is dead. your best bet is to remove the battery and charge it, then test it, then hook it back up. When you hook it back up be sure to attach the negative cable last.

My battery is boiling and smelling. Is it a faulty battery, or is my alternator causing it to over-charge the battery?


You need to replace the battery to start with. you cannot test the charging system with the battery the way it is or you will get a false reading. Once you replace the battery, you can then test your charging system to see if the alternator is causing the problem. If its charging more than 14.8 -15 volts, its too much and you will need to replace the alternator.
