your alternator is still under warranty get a new one, based on your info thats the problem, just make sure when installing the new one the battery polarity is correct because that is one cause of damaging the alternator, reversed polarity will burn regulator ic, once you have installed the new alternator run the engine on idle remove one of the battery connector if the engine still run it means the alternator is charging, if engine stops check wiring connection

Have the charging system checked. The alternator may need testing.

2001 f250 changed battery changed alternator stupid thing stiil will not charge battery


make sure the cables are both good if they have a spot that feels flimsy the wires inside are likely corroded and the current is not running through it properly. a simple charging system check would be recommended.

Battery Light still on


The new alternator is probably ok.
I would say you burned a fuseable link in the wiring harness.
The alternator has a fuse wire between it and the battery to protect it from overload.
Have someone check the wires coming out of the back of the alternator. The big wire should have battery voltage, the small wires energize the alternator when you start the engine.

Brand new battery keeps running down. I'll jump it off, and two days later, battery is dead. Today, the A/C went out. Are these problems connected? What's running my battery down? Is It a belt issue?


It's probably your alternator. When your alternator isn't working properly your battery provides all or most of the car's electrical power. Until you can replace the alternator you can disconnect one of your battery cables while the car is not in use and that will prevent the battery running down. One way to check if your alternator is the problem is to disconnect the negative battery cable while the car is running. If the car goes dead, it is very likely an alternator problem. It usually requires about an hour of labor to replace an alternator. Most alternators can be rebuilt at an alternator repair shop and that is cheaper than buying a new or re-manufactured one.

I have a 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP....while i was driving it just went dead and wouldn't start back up. Could it just be the battery? Before it died it was cutting out.


Your alternator went out allowing the battery to die, taking away power from the spark plugs, Please get new alternator and replace battery this should fix your problem.

We changed the battery because nothing would come on, after changing the battery the new one died the same day, went to auto zone was told I needed a new alternator. Changed that today jumped the car and...


You may have received a faulty alternator from the store. I have bought alternators from AutoZone before and in one instance had to take it back 3 times before I got one that worked correctly. Also, you should not have jumped the car, you should have started it up on battery and alternator. That would have told you if the battery was drained or the alternator you had just put in was bad. If you put the drained battery back in the car to run it, the car would have died anyway. Whenever I have changed an alternator out I always let it run in the driveway for awhile to make sure that both the battery and alternator are functioning correctly.

BATTERY OVERCHARGED AND ALTERNATOR IS FINE


If you have a fully charged battery when you installed then 14 volts is way to much charge for the battery which would mean that the alternator probably has a faulty regulator and the alternator needs to be changed otherwise you will continue to install new batteries. If the battery was in an uncharged state then it is possible for the alternator to charge at full capacity to charge up the battery.

NEW ALTERNATOR, NEW BATTERY, CAR still dies and wont start


Check the main power fuse that goes to the alternator output. if the alternator went out it could have burnt this fuse also.
