Yes in that case the alternator needs to be checked by the meter.It should show exact 12 volt.If its not showing exact voltage then the alternator is faulty.But if the alternator is checked ok then its a connection problem between alternator and battery.Also at local garages they have spare alternator.If possible,get the car checked with spare alternator before going for new alternator. Thanks.Helpmech.

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


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)

My battery dies i replaced a brand new alternator but still dosen't charge tomthe battery


The battery most likely has dead cells and not charging due to the alternator .The alternator is doing what it should, your battery just can't hold the charge the alternator is putting out. Go have the battery tested at a local auto zone or advance auto store. Free to check

Dash says battery not charging


Alternator is what charges the battery. The alternator isn't putting out enough of amps to charge your battery and you will get a light or gauge reading that the voltage is low.

325ci wouldn't turn on so I got a jump and then when I turn it of


A working alternator can try to charge a bad battery but won't. Have the battery and charging system checked with a machine. Also note: your alternator is not designed to charge a battery. It is made to maintain the state of charge present in the battery. If the battery has been drained, then jumped, the alternator can put a surface charge there but will never fully charge the battery...This is only done with an external battery charger. Not doing this will over-work the alternator and shorten battery life!

Alternator not charging battery


If your "battery" light on the dash is going on and staying on the alternator is definitely faulty, either the diodes or the wiring. However, if the light doesn't come on when you turn the ignition key to "IG" position - befort it starts - check that the bulb is ok. The alternator won't work if the bulb is dead.

Charging problem.. Wont charge battery


The instructions for installing a new alternator usually read to fully charge the battery (12.3 - 12.8 volt range). Otherwise, the alternator will be damaged when it initializes. I have seen some extreme damage result from installing a new alternator with a low-charge battery. The torque required to turn an alternator when damaged in this scenario is unbelieveable!
