You did not mention in your post that you actually had to "jump start" your vehicle so I can only assume that the dash light is the concern

in other words, there is a short in your alternator warning light

if however, you actually have to jump start the vehicle then your battery drain could be coming from just about any one of the 6 computers on your vehicle and/or just the fact that you do not use/drive your vehicle enough

for this vehicle you MUST drive at least 20 minutes at highway speeds to recharge the battery

multiple short trips in a week will be enough to kill even the BEST batteries

Batery wont charge when u jump,, new battery 5 months ago

You need to go to auto parts store and have them check that the alternator is charging the battery. They do this for free. Also have them check the battery to make sure that there is not a bad cell in the battery. This can happen from time to time. if all of that is good u may have a drain on the battery. Check that all lights go out when u shot down the car.

What causes the charging system go from charging then stops then charges again

To test a battery use a load tester. The problem may be a cell bridge failure . Check for tight clean terminals and tight wires on the alternator.

92 Isuzu trooper.... Alternator went out.. Replaced it.. Charged battery.. Started.. Ran for 10 mins no problem.. Turned it off.. Now it won't start.. I was told maybe needs new starter??? Any other

Check to see if the battery is really getting charged when the engine is running. Also find that the relay wirings to the relay from the alternator broken. The function of this relay is to turn those dash lights off and supply current to turn the air con relay on when the alternator is charging, also you will find that your air con and fans wont turn on either. this relay acts like a self preservation for the battery if the alternator fails cuting out things that draw a lot of current.

Mitsubishi montero sport 2002 will not start

Back in the old day,s you could take the battery cable off with the vehicle running - 60's . begining in the 70's they started using transistors in the vehicle electronics . A voltage spike could short out a PCM - engine computer etc.... If you want to test a alternator take it to a qualified repair shop or take it off the vehicle an have a parts store bench test it .

Did you test for B+ voltage at the connections on the alternator ? Without B+ at the right connections it won't charge .

It sounds like your alternator is bad. East way to confirm, take it to local auto parts store (IE: Autozone, Advance, etc) and have them do a FREE charging system test. Couple of thoughts; you have two new batteries and your poor alternator has to work twice as hard. After you put new batteries in, you've been running on straight battery power. Alternator normally runs all your electronics and recharges battery(s) but if Alt has gone "south" then you're on straight battery power.

easy test on alt start car loosen pos cable.then take off cable from batterie if alt is good it wont cut out.if it does,more than likely your alt. if the belt was the problem it would be noticeable by squealing and audible slipping.and most voltage regulators are built into the alternaters these day.

Good battery not holding charge

there could be a draw in the electrical system. with key out of ignition and all doors closed. disconnect neg battery cable and put test lite in between cable and battery terminal, if it lites up strong, then there is a draw down. to trace the draw, leaving test lite hooked up, remove interior lite fuse. then remove one fuse at a time(returning previous fuse to proper place) until test lite goes out. that is the circuit that is drawing down. you pull the interior lite fuse first cause door will most likely be open to ck rest of fuses. hope this helps

I have changed my battery 3 times and it keeps going dead

Did they test the output only, 13.5 to 14v if it was all that was tested there are two other possibilitys that the alternator needs testing for Voltage regulation which will fry a battery (over charge and cells collapse)or the diodes have failed which will flatten a battery overnight.
