SOURCE: I have a bran-new alternator. But my car still

CHECK ALTERNATOR FUSE + FUSE LINK TO MAIN BATTERY FEED WIRE.MAKE SURE YOUR BATTERY CABLES IN GOOD SHAPE.IF THEY ARE OLD REPLACE THEM.BECAUSE THEY WILL CAUSE HIGH RESISTANCE IN CIRCUIT CAUSE CHARGING PROBLEMS. AND CHECK ALTERNATOR POSITIVE WIRE AND VOLTAGE REGULATOR WIRE.MAKE SURE DRIVE BELT NO SLIPPING.ALSO MAKE SURE YOUR BATTERY IS 12.5 VOLTS.IF BATTERY IS WEAK ALTERNATOR WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CHARGE IT.IT WOULD BE LIKE A BUCKET WITH LARGE HOLE IN IT.KEEP FILLING IT WITH WATER IT WILL LEAK OUT.IT WONT HOLD NONE.

SOURCE: tachometer revs up in speed when car is not

If this is a manual, sounds like the clutch is worn and needs to be replaced. If this is an automatic it could be the torque convertor or various parts int he transmission showing wear.

SOURCE: head lights flicker at night low and high. speed

your car uses separate relays for hi and low, so it isn't the relay. Looking at the diagram, I would guess it's the Headlight switch, but could also possibly be the Hi/Low switch. Does it help any to put a little pressure on the headlight switch? Or maybe try the same with the Hi/low switch?
Sorry, that's all the ideas I have for now. I will paste the diagrams below, but they may be hard to read due to resolution.

Radio going off and on..air conditioner going off and on..gauges flickering and won't start


It could be a faulty alternator. This would cause a battery drain since the alternator would not be recharging the battery and supplying operating voltage to the vehicle. Once the battery dropped to about 8 volts then the gauges, A/C, radio and other electronics would start acting crazy. Eventually the car would have shut down, but since you stopped at the post office, that didn't happen. With the battery being so low in charge, that would not allow the car to restart, as there would not be enough current to engage the starter properly. Check the battery voltage. If it seems ok (12-13 volts), try checking it again with someone trying to start the car. A normal battery will see some voltage drop, but a drained one will fall to almost zero with a starter load. Since you have gauges and not warning lights, a discharging battery may have gone unnoticed. If you determine the alternator is bad, be sure to have the battery charged, or if necessary, replaced before using the new alternator. A low battery can cause a new alternator to fail and most alternator warranties will not cover this type of failure.

New battery drains.


I can't imagine how changing the belt would have any effect on the electrical system if the alternator is working.
The way you check for a drain is to disconnect the battery ground cable and use a test light to make the connection between the battery and ground. If there is something drawing power from the battery the light will glow.
Then you pull each fuse from the fuse boxes until the light goes out. You also disconnect the starter and alternator if necessary.

New Battery and alternator. The Battery light comes on and flickers when car is running.


It`s not uncommon to have a faulty unit, try voltage test on battery with engine running and all the electric`s you can switch on it should be putting out 13-15 volts at the battery also check belt tension...

check the battery voltage with a digital meter, clean the cables and terminals replace any loose ones. check grounds

car off should be minimum or 12.5 anything less its probably a bad or low charged battery, with the car running with ac on and lights on high beams
should be 13.5-15v
anything less the alternator should be checked and or replaced. 13.5 is on the low side of the scale keep that in mind.

as far as the accessories acting up, a low battery or bad alternator will cause all sorts of things to flicker and act up so start with the above first
and good luck
if after all thats completed and your still over time having a dead battery you have a parasitic drain, every car has a small one normally but a big one can be big trouble,
disconnect the battery get yourself a test light. clamp one end of the test light to the positve cable (unhooked from battery) and touch the end of the test light to the + on the battery. if it lights up bright you have a parasitic drain. (something staying on,) unplug fueses until the light turns off and that fuse that was pulled right before the light went off is the circuit that's bad and needs to be checked. could be as simple as a light staying on or a aftermarket radio, but it can get as indepth as full electrical diagnostics

the squeal when you start is the drive belt, it is slipping on the alternate you have to remember that the starter is the largest load on the battery so when the engine starts the alternator goes into a full output mode so there is a lot of load on the alternator belt right after start up also this probably why you are having a low charge at idle the belt is slipping enough to allow the alternator to slip at low ingoing speeds, take a good look at the belt tensionor and the drive belt best guess is that you will need both a new belt and a new tensionor.......HAVE FUN

If alternator is bad what kind isu i have to my


Your alternator is likely to blame if anything electrical slows or lights dim while you are driving.
If your battery frequently discharges, your alternator likely needs to be replaced.
If your alternator light comes on or flickers when you start your car, you should have your vehicle inspected as soon as you can.
If your vehicle does not start, your alternator could be to blame. The problem could also be your battery, so check its charge.
A clanging or rattling sound might be an indicator of something gone wrong with the alternator belt or its other parts.


Before paying money for a new alternator (which I was about to do today), be sure to have the alternator tested. As many people suggest, Auto Zone, and other parts suppliers, will test it for free. You may have bad connections into your alternator...make sure they are secure and free of corrosion. You might also simply need to tighten the alternator belt. A loose belt will also prevent the alternator from charging the battery.

My battery light flickers when I am at a stop sign--it goes off when i accelerate. i bought a battery and the alternator tests ok.


either the belt is slipping or the alternator is losing juice at a lower rpm....i take it it was checked in park,or taken out and tested by a machine which spins fast?
