Yes you can charge it with a 12v battery charger but if the car charging system is in good working order then you could jump start is off and let run for 10 minutes and the car will charge the battery itsself

94 buick 3.8 engine not charging Battery right

Its a fairly simple system. The alternator gets a signal from the circuit for the warning light and-or gauge to activate the voltage regulator inside the alternator. The large wire between the alternator and the battery or starter is fused for protection.
Could be a problem with that circuit back to the instrument cluster, or the circuit to the battery, or a ground connection. You could also have a second defective alternator.

Do you drive it every day? The clock can kill a battery in 2 days if it is not run. How did you check the battery>? Volts, amps?,Electrolytes? The battery must maintain minimum 13.5 volts at all times. The electrolyte fluid can tell you a lot about the condition of a battery, One dead or weak cell, you might as well trash it. Just because it is a newer battery doesn't mean it is good, I've taken them off the shelf, dead. If you have an amp meter on the dash, it should always show charging, or 13+ volts, a light will only show when it is not charging or a very low battery is being charged, depends on the car. Get one of those floaty ball things at the auto store and check the water in the battery, and make sure it is up on water, bottled water works good, distilled type, no minerals. Hope this helps.

Changed altenater and wont keep charge! Bettery light is on???

Have your battery load tested. Sounds like your battery is just getting what we call a surface charge. It holds the charge momentarily. This would be due to a bad cell in your battery. Even if you have a new battery you can still have a bad cell. I think you are going to find the battery is bad.

I was driving down the raod the gauges went out then the truck died check betterys they have 11.79v but it want turn over at all it just clicks

The "clicking" is most likely your solonoid. Either your battery is low or the solonoid is not engaging (faulty) and needs to be replaced. If the truck died and the battery is low - I would check the alternator, since once the vehicle is running the alternator should put out enough power to charge the battery and keep the vehicle running even if the battery is bad. Let me know. Thanks

Battery won't charge.

Check your altinator wires are clean and tight.I have had some cars with that problem and its been the altinator regulator is the fault. Allthough the charge light goes out its still faulty.
