Why won't new alternator charge battery when car is running


Many cars have a voltage regulator that is integral to the alternator. Check to be sure it is properly connected. One year later afternoon the day before the Turkey was to be cooked I replaced the Alternator. I drove 200 hundred miles and had the car die at the gate to my destination. I failed to properly connect the Voltage Regulator on the Alternator. Look in that direction for a bad wire, fuse, connector.

How to fix the alternator belt back in place?


First unhook the negative battery cable so you do not blow the $20 alternator fuse. Loosen the bolt holding the adjust BLOCK in place on top of the alternator. Loosen the bolt holding the bottom of the alternator to the motor. Now you can use the adjuster bolt to slide the alternator over and out the belt back on . This is what you have to do to adjust your belt also. If you short the back of the alternator while tightening or loosening the lower bolt it blows an expensive fuse on the positive terminal of the battery(dealer only part)and your battery will not charge , no warning light, and your battery will go dead stranding you. When this happens a jump start will not help. A fully charged battery might get you home before it goes dead. Be Careful.

Changed alternator & battery but car does not charge


make sure all those spots the wire daisy chains too arent corroded and clean and shiny bright, check all your connections and check that theres no corrosion on the bolts or mounting points. other then that you may just have a bad alternator again, autozone parts arent always the best

I have a 1996 lincon contanental, and just resently the car started blowing Alternateors. ive had it rewierwd but now it will only run if hooked up to another car. as soon as you unhookthem the RPM levals...


Several possibilities come to mind. a bad ground connection between the engine and the chassis will do this. Install an additional ground wire from the battery negative terminal to a good clean bolt (at least 5/16" diameter bolt) on the engine.
Ford also had problems with the field electrical connector melting where it plugs into the alternator. Check for both of these problems and install a new alternator. Does the battery go dead if the car sits for a week? If so, something is not turning off and is drawing the power out of the battery. This will cause the alternator to work very hard when the car is first started. This will damage the rectifier inside the alternator, ruining it.

PS High quality re-manufactured Ford alternators will come with a new field connector and instructions on how to install it.

Battery Light Blinks off and on - then stays off then starts


this is most commonly caused by a burned/loose alternator connector or a defective rectifier in the alternator itself, have the battery tested as well, if the battery is LOW OR STARTING TO GO OUT IT CAN RUIN THE ABOVE PARTS FROM OVERHEATING OF THE ALTERNATOR, Kragen and Autozone do this charging system test for free, but still check the alternator connections.
