Voltage draw down found!
1) repaced bad battery
2) rechecked voltage draw still showing 12 volt drain with all under hood fuses, relays, and interior fuses and relays pulled.
3) Computer was the 12 Volt drain, & had to reprogram itself.
4) gave the new battery a good long charge, reinstalled the battery into the vehicle.
5) Hooked the battery up, pulled the keys out of the ignition, close and lock all doors with auto door lock. Waited minimum of 20 min so the computer would go back into the sleep mode.
6) after 20 minute wait, rechecked the voltage draw by removing the neg battery cable from the battery, hooking volt meter + lead to battery cable end, and neg lead to battery neg post, nothing showing or zero reading.
7) Hooked the neg cable up to battery, started the truck and let the engine idle to normal run temp, then fast idled 1200-1300 rpms for 2 minutes, then drove the vehicle for 5+ miles and alternating speeds. All appears back to normal now. Alt showing 14.2 to 14.4 volts, and no other problems.
After all of the afore mentioned, my problems began with a bad battery cell, thus caused my computer to have the memory reset.Until the computer was reset, I had a 12v continious draw down! I got this info from a repair manual, that I purchase sometime ago. Thanks for your alls help........EJB

Alternator is overhauled, still not charging. But batterylight on revcounter doesnt light up when ignition is switched on.


Check the voltage at the alternator big wire. 14 volts? check at the battery, 12 volts. The wire is corroded or bad. If the alternator lead is showing battery volt(12) check the alternator plug. Pull it off, With key on it should show 12 volts one one wire and ground on the other. Takes at least test light to confirm this

Losing power no fault showing up


Check your alternator and see if it is charging properly. With the ignition off, your battery should read approx 12 volts, with the engine running, approx. 14-15 volts. A real sign is if your internal dash lights are dimming while driving, same with the head lights. This does not normally trigger a fault code.

I think I have an alternator problem? The charge needle on the dash guage is spiking to 16 volts off and on. I put a voltmeter to the battery and it is only charged to about 11 volts. With the engine...


Hello
The normal charge of alternator on idling is about 13 to 14 volts. 12 is acceptable but keep in mind it will need attention soon. The needle fluctuates due to the revs of the alternator - there is nothing to worry about. Just look that the charge is always above 12V on idle.

I have alternator charging battery problems on my 1991 Chrysler Lebaron LX 3.0 Liter V6 Convertible. Any ideas?


hello there:
you're problem may be in the alternator or the battery to find out you will need a volt meter and have the vehicle running to test the alternator set you volt meter to dc voltage and touch the positive side with the red lead and the negative side with the black lead you should show 14 to 14.5 volts if not replace the alternator then with car off using the volt meter and test the battery the same way you should get 12 to 13 volts then wit the volt meter still hooked up to the battery with the help from someone try to start the car and see if the voltage drops below 10 volts if so the battery might be shot....hope this is helpful best regards D.Jones p.s please leave a review thanks

When its hooked up, you should be able to put 12 volts on the little stud on the solenoid and it should start. One large stud will have 12 volts on it, so just jump it right there. Did you get the wires in the right place. The solenoid should have 1 large wire going down to the starter. Be sure the battery cables are clean and tight ( both ends) Check battery voltage when cranking, should go to 10-11 volts. Check voltage between negative terminal on battery and engine, should be ZERO when cranking. The solenoid has 2 large studs, make sure the battery positive wire and all the other wires are hooked to this stud, the other large stud should just have the wire going to the starter.

2006 Chevy Silverado alternator intermittent charging


Perfectly normal.
Starting with the 2005 model year, light duty full size pickups and utilities are equipped with a new Regulated Voltage Control (RVC) system. This system reduces the targeted output of the generator to 12.6-13.1 volts when in "Fuel Economy Mode" to improve fuel economy. The generator may exit "Fuel Economy Mode" if additional voltage is required. This will cause the voltmeter to fluctuate between 12 and 14 volts as opposed to non-regulated systems that usually maintain a more consistent reading of 14 volts. This fluctuation with the RVC system is normal system operation and NO repairs should be attempted.
