Check the alternator see if the silinoid is not sticking.jack it up and have some one put the hand under ste cilinoid and if they feel some kind of movement then it's not the alternator hope that helps

My shuma 1.5 ls was running fine, then just wouldnt start. Push starts fine, went for a drive and it seems the battery isn't charging, its a newish battery, altenator and starter seems fine. Why?

Have the battery load tested to determine the health and it's ability to take and hold a charge...the alternator can be tested too. If they test fine check your clutch switch. Hope this helps.

I would check ignition items or fuel delivery if it just died on you. It wont be the battery unless it was dead and the alternator stop working.

My car doesn't charge.

Make sure that alternator is grounded good. Outside of that I can't think of anything else.
