So is the alternator charging or not? If not, find out why. 4 times? where are you getting parts? I would only buy parts from the dealer for this car. You need to have th ecar "scanned" and see if there are any trouble codes related to the charging system.

Battery light on, got new alt., starter tries to engage, but doesnt


Did you have the charging system diagnosed or did you just guess at it being the alternator . The charging system is computer controlled . The starter isn't working because low power , battery dead . Is there B+ voltage at the wire on the back of the alternator .B+ voltage at pin 3 at the connector pluged into the alternator .
Charge the battery use a volt meter an test for B+ voltage at the places i mention . No check engine light ? DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored .

Erratic battery light flash.Battery is only 1 month old,and just had a brand new alt. put on,and all was good except it whined like a super charger,so Oreilly's refunded alt and labor.Put the other alt...


It's likely an issue with the power or ground wire.

Corrosion can make strands unable to carry voltage.

I suggest replacing the wiring.

Thanks!

Thismorning lights and blower flashed battery light came on voltage dropped to low. batt.light still on truck is starting and running fine.i put a voltage meter on batt.---reads 12.9--11.0. top bolt on...


Sounds like you may need an alternator.
If the batt is ok, could be the alt going out.
A local pep boys or equivalent can check free or inexpensively...
The voltage regulator is built in to the alternator... so if you change the alternator, you change the regulator too.

96 2.5 cherokee 2dr sat for a month, charged batt. , drove 4 miles, died, no power. had alt. tested, passed, got new batt., now it turns over but will not fire. Please help!


Make sure that all the wiring disturbed by the battery change was restored. Do you have the check engine light on? If so, rent a scanner and read out any code(s). Pursue the codes to repair(s). You can check the ignition by removing one spark plug wire, connect it to a spare plug and set the plug base on the engine. Have someone try the starter while you watch the plug--it should flash at regular intervals while the starter turns. If ok, let the car rest for a while, then have someone turn-on the key (don't try to start) while you listen at the fuel tank. You should hear the fuel pump run for a short time, then quit. That means the pump has built pressure and is awaiting start. If it continues to run, the pump may be toast and should be replaced. Change the fuel filter.

2. step on the brake pedal 5 times within 10 seconds. 3. key off. 4. start car. 5. check if the light went out. you may have to try it a few times to get it.
