Try checking for a loose cable connection on the battery.With a loose connection,you might be able to start the car,but it may not be able to charge properly.If the cable is tight,check for a loose belt and make sure it is at the proper tension.It can have the same effect as a loose cable,but might make a squealing noise.

SOURCE: Battery dosn't charge, alternator/voltage adapter test's good.

Did you test the Alternator on or off the truck? It might be a problem with the control system to the Alternator. The regulator need a battery feed to work, It is usually ran through an alternator fuse.

SOURCE: My battery is boiling and smelling. Is it a faulty battery, or is my alternator causing it to over-charge the battery?

Not always alternator but sometimes the voltage regulator. Depends on your system. If not replaced since 1998 then you definitely need to do put in some replacement parts (if still worthwhile)

SOURCE: alternator good,battery good but not charging

I had a similar problem once and found that I had a short in one the wires where it entered the plug that plugs into the alternator. Check the wires going to and from the alternator for broken insulation, etc. Do you have a warning light on the dash? If so, have someone watch it while you move around some of the wiring and see if the light goes out. If it does, then it is a wiring problem. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 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...

Alternator not charging battery (replaced alternator and same issue) tested and no codes showing, alternator shows good and battery shows good. Could be a break in a wire between the two or what Help


Yes. The field control wire feeding power into the alternator needs testing and the output from the alternator to your battery also needs testing. Either one can cause low charging of the battery. Corrosion or loose connections are common issues as well as broken strands of wire internally . A fuse or fuseable link sometimes burns out in the cable from the alternator to the battery .

What would cause the battery gauge on a 93 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo to bounce between 14v and 9v. this is also running the battery dead and not charging the battery back up.


Several things need to be checked before an accurate diagnosis can be made, however in general it is most likely your alternator going out OR a bad connection in your alternator/charging circuit wiring.

It's also important to test/verify that you have a good fully charged battery (with no dead cells) before any tests of the charging system. An alternator needs ample battery power into it before it can produce good charging voltage and amps out of it and back into the battery.

If you test the voltage directly out of the alternator's output post/connector (with the output wire disconnected), you will be reading direct alternator voltage output, which should be approx 13.5 to 14 volts, steady. If the voltage is at ~14 volts, then suddenly cycles down to 9 volts (or anything less than 12 volts), then you have a defective alternator.
If the alternator, while isolated, tests out at a constant 13.5 to 14 volts, then the problem is most likely a bad wire or connection in the charging circuit wiring.

There is also the possibility of the battery (how old is it?) shorting out internally, causing the voltage fluctuation. That's why I previously said you need to verify each battery cell is fully charged and good. You can usually test this with a battery hydrometer (if it's not a "sealed" maintenance free battery).

What causes the charging system go from charging then stops then charges again


To test a battery use a load tester. The problem may be a cell bridge failure . Check for tight clean terminals and tight wires on the alternator.

1994 LeBaron battery and alternator good but will not charge


Check for power on the large wire at the alternator. this can be done with the engine off. If there is not battery voltage at that wire at the alternator than there is an open circuit beaten the alternator and the batty. If I remember correctly there are fusible links somewhere in that circuit. Either way you'll have to start digging in to see where the problem is on that wire.

Alternator is good, battery is good but battery isnt holding a charge


Confirm the battery test...a bad cell causes a run down in the charge...how old is the battery? A slightly swollen battery on the sides is also an indicator of a bad cell. Confirm the alternator test...this is a free service (on your car) at most parts stores...I have seen a rare starter with a "short" that slowly causes a good battery to loose its charge. Hope this helps.

did you have the alternator tested on the car? the alternator may be good but the wiring to it may have a fault, have some one do a charging test on the car, if it still shows that the it is charging have them do an AC current test it could be that the diode is out in the alternator which would cause the light to come on and also the battery to drain when the engine is off. If it is not charging on the car suspect the plug end on the alternator ( we see them fail alot ). there is also a charge fuse might check it. The charging is controlled by the BCM ( body control module). If no charge and plug and wiring are good , fuse is good , suspect BCM......GOOD LUCK

Lites "click" when i try starting. Car started w/ a jump. Ran for 30 minutes turned off. Wont start. Alternator? Or just battery?


sounds like alternater is not charging-however you should charge the battery and have it tested-if the battery is getting weak it can cause the alternater to over work causing a failure

A bad voltage regulator could cause the problem. Assuming the alternator is working correctly. Jump the vehicle with the battery disconnected and then disconnect the jumper cables. If the vehicle dies your voltage regulator or Alternator are bad, some vehicle have separate regulators from the alternator, if it continues to run the alternator is good but the voltage regulator is probably the cause.
