Question about 1995 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

The car was not holding a charge and died, so we replaced the alternator, now it is continuing to not charge even with a new alternator. Also there is a fuse box in the engine compartment, what do those fuses go to? somehow we have 3 fuses missing. Could that be the charging problem or possibly something electrical

Ground wire location

Check your new battery and alternator. May be new, but I have gone through 3 new alternators to find a working "new" alternator.

1999 Toyota Tacoma battery keeps dying

This is easy to test but you need a multimeter. Connect the multimeter to the battery and run the engine at a fast idle (say 2000 rpm). You should get a voltage reading anywhere from 14 to 15 volts if the battery is fully charged and the alternator is working. If the reading is around 12 volts, then the alternator is not working.

My battery dies i replaced a brand new alternator but still dosen't charge tomthe battery

The battery most likely has dead cells and not charging due to the alternator .The alternator is doing what it should, your battery just can't hold the charge the alternator is putting out. Go have the battery tested at a local auto zone or advance auto store. Free to check

Car wont start no lights and batterie is dead . jump it and it starts right up

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You need to make sure the battery is holding a proper charge. Clean the terminals and clean the post. You could have a weak alternator draining your battery. You can test it by starting the car and unplugging the hot side battery terminal once the battery is charged. If it dies instantly, your alternator is bad. You may need a new battery.

1995 bmw 318is new alternator battery dieing

Re-check the battery cables at both ends. If the cables/connections are good, there's no reason a new battery shouldn't hold a charge, even one that's been drained. If the connections are good, it's possible you either got a bad battery or it was sitting on the shelf for a while before you bought it. If this was the case, a good slow charge should solve your problem but if it doesn't I'd bring the battery back to the retailer and have it replaced. Hope this answers your question and All the best!

Car won't start even after new battery purchase

Alternator problem, the alternator charges the battery when car is running, so it has probably died now. Was working at reduced capacity for a while, which is why you were only getting a partial charge for some time. Now you have an open circuit completely as alternator has failed completely, time for a visit to an auto electrician. PS replacing acid in battery with distilled water is not a good idea. It probably was time for a new battery anyway.

Dead battery or alternator?

Sounds as if the alternator is shot.
You can take the battery and alternator in to any parts store NAPA, AutoZone, Murrays, etc. to have it load tested for free.
