The ammeter in the dash is bad and the charge from alternator is not getting back to the battery.
you can run a heavy gauge wire from the back of the alternator back to the positive "+" of the battery to make sure the battery is getting charged.
If you check with a voltmeter it should be between 13.8 volts to 14.7 at the battery to be charging.

1994 honda accord new altanator ,engine dies when battery is disconected


If the alternator is wired correctly and working,the vehicle will keep running if nothing else is switched on at idle speed.
Just because an alternator is new does not guarantee it works.
Make sure the alternator has a connection to the battery (voltage at it's output terminal) and has power to it's regulator.

Chevrolet celebrity problems


fuel problems wouldnt cause electrical issues... most likely a dead ground (positive wire shorting against something metal) the only real way to find one is with a complete wire trace. I would start with anything recently installed (perhaps a stereo or amp). another good place to check is around the exhaust (these wires sometimes get to hot and ground when the coating melts away)

Altanator keeps dieing.


A fresh charged battery does not mean it is a good battery.The battery is working the alternator to death,replace it,it has a bad cell,or the amps are to low,and has a short in it.The alternator senses the battery is in bad need off charge,and puts all out until the alternator has nothing left,This is the most likely cause of this problem.Also be sure the battery cable ends are shiny clean when replacing the battery.

I just put a brand new battery in my 1996 dodge intrepid and the battery light wont go off.


if the battery light won't go of after replacing the battery you have a bigger issue, chances are the altanator is not putting out enough voltage. I would have that check as soon as possible, that way you don't die on the road. when the car is running the altanator should be putting out 14.6 volts at all times, if it is below 13 then the altanator should be replaced.

Altanator not charging


Alternators require a + feed from the battery before they start charging. Make sure 12v is reaching it from the switched live supply.

I have a 91 crx with a voltage issue. the car has a brand new alternator and a good battery. the car runs at around 10.6-10.8 volts while running. i can start the car with the voltage regulator unplugged...


your problem is on the generator,if the chargig fuse os ok.(usually a very big fuse) altanator could be new and bad. try another one.,.the charging relae is usualy on the altanator.
