Question about 1989 Chrysler Fifth Avenue

1 Answer

The battery is getting too much of a charge. So much that it swelled. I had the altenator checked and it is producing the propper amount of charge. What could be wrong? I don't see and loose or corroded ground wires. Are there any typical malfunctions that could cause this?

Try the regulator or a bad battery

    I replaced the battery, and from what the auto parts store says there is not an external regulator from the altenator. Is there a seperate regulator from the altenator?

What could cause an altenator not to get power


Alternators give charge not get a charge. Check that you have connected up the wires to the alternator correctly. Check drive belt for tension and condition. If it still will not charge have a qualified auto electrician check it over.

My battery light lit up on dash of my 2008. Mitsh. lancer gls cvt....what does that mean?


Altenator is not charging the system. It could be the altenator, regulator (built into the altenator), A loose wire (bad connection). There is a plug on the altenator that signals this light when a problem occurs. start the car and wiggle it or unplug it and plug it back in, this will tell you if you have a bad connection. To check the altenator you need a voltage tester.

The chargeing light won't go off


Usually it means the altenator is not charging and that the car is running on the battery reserve, so the car will run until the battery goes dead. Sometimes the light will come on if the altenator is over charging the battery, producing overly high voltage to your cars electrical system. Not good either..

Saab 93 1.9 tid warning battery not charging car died whilst driving charged battery at home car now starting lights all out is this battery prob or alternator?


The easiest way to check is with the car running, disconnect the positve side of the battery, if the car dies, then it is the altenator, if the car keeps running then it is the battery. If you have a volt ohm meter, check the chrge going to the battery you should get between 12 and 14 volts if it is lower than 12 you have an altenator issue. the altenator should always produce enough to charge the battery and run the car at the same time, if not then the battery wears down.

Blinking battery indicator


the altenator will test fine although if they did not test with a voltmeter on the car reversing the voltmeters probes on the battery I would say the diode is at fault. when a diode goes bad and the battery is fully charged or new the voltage will look fine but the altenator will not charge as it should, a diode keeps the current from reversing which would be called a direct current as all cars have. if the diode is faulty the current will reverse becoming an altenating current a will not produce a charge to the battery

Why my battery keep dieing


Take the battery in at any auto parts store and have it load tested. They will tell you if its a good battery or not. If not get a new one and then test the altenator with a volt meter. If no access to a volt meter take the altenator in and have that tested. If you do have one start the engine and run the probes from the volt meter this way. The positive probe to the negative terminal of the battery and the negative probe to the positive side of the battery. If a reading of voltage shows the diode inside the altenator is at fault. If the reading displays the OL feature on the display the diode is good. Now switch the probes to red on red and black on black and see if it shows 13.5 volts. If it is less than that voltage the altenator is not producing a good charge to the battery so it will need to be replaced too

Truck won't start however once i get a jump it is


checke your altenator for charge. if the altenator is putting out more than 10 volts your truck will still run but your battery will not charge , a good altenator will produce 13.0 - 14.25volts .
