Go to a shop or auto parts store that will check your battery/charging system. As much time as it sounds like you've put into it, I would have bought a new battery. Make sure it is the right one, you may be on the edge of a new alternator. Mechanical loosening of your battery cables may require better hardware or new cables ( are cables corroded on the inside all the way thru, end to end? This creates extreme resistance and heat).

Alternator won't charge although alternator repair shop said it is ok


First did you clean the battery terminals and posts on your battery and how old is the battery and did it pass the load test ? Is your alternator belt squealing while everything turned on? If so it needs to be tightened , After doing all this Put a volt meter on the battery terminals while the car or truck is running , It should read between 13.5 V and 14.5 V and if so check with every thing turned on and if the voltage drops below 13.5v and If so the Alternator is bad

Rv won't start. starter just clicked rapidly after replacement, battery tested good. Dash lights (high beam and Turn indicators ) light when ignition switch is un start position


Poor connection either at the starter, battery, alternator, or loose engine ground strap. Fully charge the battery also.

Battery in 08 dodge charger keeps going dead. I had the alternator checked and was bad so I replaced it and car is still doing the same thing


your alternator is shot, use a multimeter to check the battery terminals. with the engine running, you should be reading above 13 volts DC.

Wiggle the bsattery terminals while someone else is trying to start car and see if that works. if not have some try to tsrat car as you bang on the starter which is directly to the left of the air box and down. you can use a tire iron or a hammer with a long metal object to bang on.

My starter in my 1995 Chrysler cirrus wont start. when i turn the ignition it just makes a clicking sound


sounds like that your battery connections might not be getting good contact, they may need cleaning, and make sure they are tight, or your starter solenoid is not working correctly., if this is the case, i would replace the starter.

CHECK BATTERY CABLES MAKE SURE THEY ARE NOT CORRODED AND LOOSE.ALSO CHECK BATTERY VOLTAGE.SHOULD BE 12.6 VOLTS IF NOT REPLACED BATTERY.BEFORE REMOVING NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE TURN OF RADIO FIRST.AFTER INSTALLING NEW BATTERY.WITH ENGINE RUNNING CHECK ALTERNATOR OUT PUT AT BATTERY SHOULD BE 13.5 TO 14.5 VOLTS.DOING THIS WILL MAY SURE BATTERY GETTING GOOD CHARGE.2 REASON BATTERIES STOP WORKING.THEY FAIL FROM OLD AGE AND ALTERNATOR CHARGING SYSTEM NOT WORKING.IF BATTERY CABLES VERY OLD I WOULD REPLACE THEM.THAT WILL HELP BATTERY GET BETTER CHARGE.OLD BATTERY CABLES PUT A RESISTANCE ON CHARGING CIRCUIT CAUSE ALTERNATOR WORK HARDER TO KEEP BATTERY CHARGED WHICH WILL SHORTEN THE ALTERNATOR LIFE.

Battery and brake light constantly comes on


Battery light comes ON,this is indication of battery not getting charged by the alternator in the car.So the battery is loosing its charge/voltage.Other possibility of battery light coming on is battery is getting weak and it needs to be replaced.In some cases,just removing and cleaning the battery terminals and then reconnecting the battery terminals again.solves the problem.But also check the battery voltage by voltmeter.A fully charge proper battery will give 12 volts.If there is then get the battery terminals cleaned and reconnect and check.-------------- Now another problem,the brake light comes on when,the brake fluid is near to end or there is any problem with brake system,that is if brake pads are getting worn out or brake caliper is getting loose,In this case first check the brake fluid,if that is fine then check the brake pads and caliper.If that is also checked fine,then only in that case.Check the brake light switch.The switch is located where the brake lever is.Remove that brake switch,clean its wiring and recheck.It should help.-------------- Thanks.Helpmech.

The easiest thing to do is to check the generator. If you have a voltmeter, check the voltage across the battery terminals while the car is running. You should get a reading of approximately 14.9 volts which means the gererator is working. With the engine off, check the battery voltage, it should be 12 volts. if it reads less (say 9 or 10 volts), the battery is not holding the charge and needs to be replaced. Also make sure you have good CLEAN TIGHT connections between the battery terminals and the leads. Sometimes a loose connection or oxidation between the terminals and the connector causing a poor connection is to blame.
