Why would the alternator test good off the truck but not charge


check the wiring on the vehicle to and from the alternator. Usually, the alternator needs excite voltage or it won't charge. Also, There is a circuit from alternator to battery, if something wrong with that circuit, the battery won't be charged even though the alternator is working fine.

What is model year? I don't know if your alternator is computer controlled?

Alternator not charging


The starter would have nothing to do with the alternator not charging. You most likely need a new alternator and possibly a new battery. At the very least, the battery will need to be charged 100% before running with a new alternator.

1992 holden barina charging problem already replaced alternator but still slowly drains battery


It is not charging the battery because of several problems ---1 when connecting up the wires to the alternator was there a spark at the connection ---2 is the heavy wire on the alternator insulated from the body of the alternator--- is there a fuse in the charge circuit that is blown---4 is the light wires pushed fully home in the connection--- have you the correct alternator for the car ( internal or external voltage regulator)---5 is the drive belt in good condition and tight- If everything checks out then take it to an accredited auto electrician to have the alternator tested properly as new alternators ( out of the box new) can be faulty.

Alternator not charging


If the alternators are not exactly the same as the original then there may be a problem with the voltage regulator circuit. Some alternators have internal regulators and others have external regulators.. Check for fuses in the charge circuit . If the battery is faulty then the alternators will not charge any way. Have a load test done on the battery.. If ok check the wiring circuit as the alternators require battery voltage before they will charge (no residual magnetism in an alternator)

Alternator wont charge after replacement , pontiac fiero


The burnt out bulb may be the problem. At least up to '87 the bulb for the alternator light was part of the charging circuit and was used to provide the resistance to excite the alternator to charge. In '88 GM started using the CS alternator, which might be self-exciting.

Charging Light On After Replacing Alternator/Battery1999Windstar


Hi, I can't tell you exactly what is wrong because there is too much involved at this point, what with 2 shops working with it, but I can give you some advise on what else to check. On the alternators and the wiring that supports them a small volt charge is taken off one of the slip rings, where the brushes ride, for the purpose of turning out the light. As I remember, this is a yellow wire that runs back to the dash.

To the alternator, it would be one of the wires that plug into the side of the alternator case.
