1998 mercury grand battery not charging put new alternator and battery still not working


Is the battery light on the dash board working? If the light does not work the alternator will not charge, it needs the power from the light to energise the rotor.

Brake and battery light on new battery and alternator installed


Wouldn't be a fuse, but it seems as if the alternator is still not putting out normal power, or else your battery has a problem taking a charge. Better have the battery tested for a dead cell. also see what a voltmeter says about alternator output now. If you have an electrical problem in the wiring somewhere or in the alt. charging controls, then possibly one or more of the diodes in the alternator may got burnt out. That means the alternator puts out less power.
On some newer cars, the engine computer, pcm, controls the rate of charge of the alternator. So you have to be careful diagnosing -know how your system operates. That's why mechanics always ask for year, make, model, and engine size if applicable.

You might have a short in the wire somewhere. That could be a real pain to find, if it shorts out going over a bump or turning.

You might also have a defective alternator, but unlikely.

Battery terminal gets extremely hot. just replaced alterantor and battery. battery indicator light also on.


Sounds like for one reason or another that alternator is putting out too much voltage to battery. Did mechanic check to see if new alternator was rated same or close to old one, as in amperage rating? Pulley on new alternator same size? You'll need to get it to another mechanic who knows what he's doing, obviously that guy wasn't too concerned with curing your problem. That's why I was hoping you had a voltage reading when running.
