I sugest that you check the Ignition Switch, it sounds as if the switch may be faulty, it should disconect the lead that goes to the alternator when you turn off the switch, if you are not familiar with this system have a service man do it for you.

What would cause alternator to have low voltage on a 1995 chevy blazer 4.3l


You have something draining your battery. Probably accessories you recently added yourself or a short in a wire somewhere. Could even be a bad relay under the hood in the fuse box. If you have a light in the glovebox make sure it is off.

Have a 1994 blazer s10. keep replacing batteries and they go dead within few days! Where is a common short?


I'll start by saying if a battery goes dead you should be able to recharge it without having to replace it.
If it goes dead overnight something may be draining it, or the alternator may not be charging enough.
A mechanic would check alternator output and check all of the circuits for a power drain.

If you don't run the blazer everyday something drains the new battery. is there a known common short. have had it to 3 different garages and no one can figure out the problem


Not that I know of.
If the battery is good, you would have to check every circuit for a power draw. Common problems with any car would be the alternator, a relay, or a light on.

1987 k5 blazer dies during driving


Make sure your battery is secured by a good battery hold-down system...if the battery shifts in the tray and the positive terminal touches the fender, the dead short will immediately kill the vehicle.
Also, take the alternator to a parts store and have it tested if your battery is held down firmly. The whining noise can be bad alternator bearings. On a vehicle of this vintage, this is a possibility for the noise. It is furthermore possible that the alternator has died electrically, and during a lengthy drive, the vehicle's own electrical consumption will drain the battery and the vehicle will die en route.
When you jump it off, it gets enough charge from the donor vehicle to drive, but if the alternator is dead, it can't keep the vehicle supplied with enough energy to operate.

Voltage gage is fluxuating when I use turn signal, windows, lights, ect... as if the alternator was going bad. Replaced alternator and battery and still have the same problem. When the car is not started...


IS THE IDLE SPEED SET TO SPEC OR SLOW?, HAVE THE ALTERNATOR AND BATTERY TESTED, AUTOZONE DOES THIS FOR FREE, ALSO A WEAK DEFECTIVE BATTERY CAN CAUSE THIS, THE ALT IS WORKING HARD TRYING TO KEEP THE BATTERY UP, ANY ADDITIONAL LOAD CAUSES THE VOLTAGE TO DROP.

One year old battery kept dying. It tested bad and


There is some things to check....

(1) Is your alternator charging? take your vehicle to Advanced Autos, Napa or someone like that and have them test your alternator.
(2) Is there something in the vehicle causing excessive drain on the battery when the motor is not running... like is the interior light may be on or something to that affect.
(3) Are you doing enough driving to recharge your battery? short stops and starts is not good for a battery as you may rob more energy from the battery then you are putting back in.
Sounds like something is draining your battery, something must be left on in the vehicle, Advanced Autos or Napa should be able to tell if something is draining your battery when the vehicle is off.

if you removed the dome lightbulb then there is no longer a draw from the battery there but if the ashtray light light does not go out then over a period the battery will go dead or drained to the point to not the vehicle
