1993 Mercury Topaz red light came on that looks like a battery. Put another altanator in and battery but light still on ?


must be a bad wire if you put a new battery and alternator in it. Are you sure the battery and alternator are good. One way to test the alternator is to run the engine and disconnect the battery [one post] while the car is running. If the car keeps running, the alternator is good. If engine cuts out and shuts off, alternator is bad

Sluggish & electrical problems after new alternator & battery put in


Sounds like the new alternator is not charging the battery. Once the battery drops below a certain level the car can't keep its components (on board computer) running. The ignition is now running off the battery which is fading. Soon the car won't be running at all.

As already suggested, check belt and new alternator.

My 1991 f250 battery keeps dying while running


The alternator is not working. When running, a voltmeter on the battery should be at least 13.5 volts, showing the alternator is working and the battery is being recharged. You have a charging system malfunction. check the connections between the battery and alternator. Check battery ground, engine grounds, and engine to body strap ground.

2004 Pontiac Montana -brand new battery, new alternator(not rebuilt). have to jump start and runs for a while then dies some times wont take charge. battery will die not running in a day. very intermi


First, you can't and shouldn't test an alternator by disconnecting the battery cable while the engine is running. You run the risk of cooking the alternator and the computer. Thats how we used to test generators back in the last century.
Is the check engine light on when the engine is running ? Is the battery charge warning light on ?
There should be a fuseable link between the alternator and the battery that could keep the alternator from charging the battery.
The ignition module would have no effect on the charging system.

Battery keeps draining


if your battery died while driving and the car cut off while your driving,, your problem is from your alternator!!!,, on a normal working car, you can start, remove ther battery terminals and the car would still run cause the alternator will be powering the car. In your case the alternator isnt working and the car was working on battery power therefore when the battery went dead the car cut off.. Your alternator need \s to be charging between 13.5 and 14.2 volts.. as little as 10 volts will keep the vehicle running.. I'd suggest you have the alternator replaced.

I RECENTLY had my engine replaced in my 2001 hyundai Elantra. This 'new' engine supposedly has only 10k miles on it. A new alternator had to be installed.The work was done by the dealer. I have had the...


The odds are the alternator is the problem again. I've installed brand new alternators in the shop that turned out bad. The battery barely had enough juice the crank the car and get it running. Then, the battery was the only thing keeping the engine running with the spark plug until the battery drain completely dead.

If the alternator was working normally, the alternator would have kept the energy up and keep the spark plugs going without the battery's help.

Basically, the battery's job is to start the engine only and the alternator's job is to keep the battery charged and supply energy for the car's needs.

1983 ford bronco 302 engine wont stay running after jumped


keep in mind, your engine use both source of power to run, one from the battery and one form alternator. If the alternator is good, your engine should stay running regardless if the battery is good or bad, the alternator should keep the engine running. It sound like to me the alternator is faulty not charging your battery or keeping your engine running, even though the alternator is brand new does not mean is good. My guess I would take the alternator back and get another one. the reason why your car ran for 25 min and die it has no source of power to keep the sparks going although the alternator should keep the engine running and at the same time charging the battery but is not.

Battery keeps draining new battery and alternaltor


Sounds like an alternator. When it goes bad, your car is forced to run off of the battery , which wont last long depending on what all you have running .
The alternator keeps your battery charged after your car starts.
Try replacing the alternator and let me know if you have any more problems.
