Ive got a 1991 Eagle talon turbo with 5 speed trans,ive replaced the battery and alternator and still wont charge?

If you know for sure that the alternator is good then use an Ohm meter to check set to DC 20 when the car is in the ON position but not running. Unplug the alternator and put the red end on the positive side of the alternator plug and touch the negative to any other metal surface. Should be the same reading as your battery is when you do the same test on the battery. If not, then the wiring is bad and needs to be replaced.

Just because something is new doesn't mean it works so if this test doesn't work, take out the alternator and have it tested.

Also check fuses!!!

I have a 1995 Eagle Talon and the car will not start, after just getting it back from the shop. The car would start with a jump, but need a jump if not started within 24 hours. This was advised to the...

Check the voltage on the battery by connecting a meter in voltmeter mode across the terminals, lower than 12.2 volts if it is dead. Make sure all lights (door closed etc) are off. Now put your meter into ammeter mode between the negative lead and the negative battery terminal, note the amps (should be very low). If you have any current drain remove the fuses one at a time and note any sudden drops. The fuses that results in the most current drain is the one that is draining your battery. Glove box and trunk interior lights failing to go off when they should are classic battery killers Get the car started with jump leads. When it is idling put a voltmeter again across the battery terminals the voltage should between 12.4 and 14.4 volts. Switch on all the lights heating etc and note the voltage. If it is maintained your alternator is OK. Once you have removed any electrical gremlins then it will be appropriate to check out any other issues

Sounds like you have a timing or elctrical issues, try checking your voltage from your battery and alterantor, if it checks out fine move on to your timing. The timing is tricky but very critical with these cars
