What else would keep the "Chek charging system" light on if battery starter spark plugs and wires have been replaced and if the alternator is good?


possible a bad regulator. Some alternators have the regulator as part of the alternator and others have it separate. If you did not have the alternator bench tested but simply used a multimeter to check voltage then it is possible that the alternator is not good as you can have 14.5 volts out put but it could be ac current as a rectifier is bad.

Battery drains, battery replaced, battery dead 2004 ford F150


Seen this "mystery drain" many times. Check spark at the battery to see how big the drain is. For this simple test, blow away any (explosive) battery charging fumes. Leave one terminal on and gently touch the other to its post in fairly dark surroundings. Then try it again with the wires taken off the alternator. Your spark is now probably much less. Usually bad diodes leaking electricity backwards through the alternator cause this drain. Replace the alternator or the diode pack inside it. Some mechanics recommend actually measuring the drain.... hahaha. OK whatever. But the radio memory and computers/control modules are the only things that should cause a drain. Not the alternator.

Car wont run.


Does it crank well and all that but with no spark or is the battery just dead? If the battery is dead, it either won't charge while alternator is spinning or the alternator doesn't charge well enough to keep the battery charged well. If it jumps and runs indefinitely, battery is done. If it jumps and dies, alternator is done. If battery and alternator are fine, and you have no spark, you may need a new coil, new spark plug wires if they are worn out and too resistant, pick up coil inside of distributor, or you may have some other ignition system issue.

Most times when an alternator fails, it starts charging less and less till the car won't keep running or it won't start the next time. If the alternator hasn't failed, the battery needs replacing. If your battery is 5 or more years old this is a very good possibility. If your alternator failed and you have killed your battery many times before replace them both. Each time you drain a battery to dead you lose about 10% of its current capacity.

If the battery is fine and engine will not turn, starter may need replacing. Hope I helped.

Battery go's flat when engine turned off


Charge the battery--then remove the negative battery terminal. Scratch the terminal over the battery post--lots of sparks (everything turned off) mean something is shorting to ground. Remove the alternator heavy wire connection and cover the wire end with a towel or paper to insulate it from ground. Retry the negative battery terminal again as before--no sparks, replace the alternator (shorted diode). If still sparks, reconnect the alternator wire, then check for hidden lights that are on (glove box, under hood light). If still get sparks, start pulling and replacing fuses, while checking for sparks each time a fuse is out. At some point, you should find the fuse that controls whatever the short/load is in.

Replaced alternator and battery is good but not charging


I found the problem YEAH. It was the fuse that is in the side of the fuse box under the hood, Its where the battery wire from the alternator connects thru a fuse to go to the battery, Its one hundred and something volt fuse. It took care of the problem instantly.... Thank you all for your replies...

Replaced alternator in 1997 lhs crysler and am


A little spark is normal,just the power going to the computer. A huge spark is a shorted wire,probably an over tightened positive terminal that cracked the plastic insulator on the alternator, or a bad alternator out of the box .

Car died and will not restart


Have you had your Battery,starter and alternator checked? if starter or alternator bad will drain battery. If battery is bad will damage alternator over period of time. If not changed. Also check your battery cables, make sure your +/- is without corrosion. Possible voltage regulator.Hope this helps..

MY ALTERNATOR WENT OUT HOW DO I REPLACE IT?


Is your engine turning over when u turn the key on? If the engine is turning over (also called 'cranking over'), then the battery is fine. If the battery loses it's charge while driving, then it would be the alternator, as that is what charges the battery. So, if your car won't start, but the engine cranks over, you have to check to see if there is spark at your spark plugs, if there is, u have to check to see if gas is getting to the spark plugs. Let me know what u find.
