    Have you replaced the battery? And what do you mean, it won't turn over or it is showing no voltage?

THERE MAY BE A BLOWN FUSE IN THE FUSE BOX UNDER THE HOOD. PROBABLY ONE OF THE LARGER " MAXI " FUSES. TEST EACH FUSE WITH A GOOD FUSE TESTER. IF THE FUSES TEST OK, YOU MAY NEED TO SEE AN AUTO ELECTRIC SHOP. CHRYSLER PUT THE VOLTAGE REGULATOR FOR THE CHARGING SYSTEM IN THE COMPUTER, { WHO KNOWS WHY, BUT YOU CAN BET IT HAS TO DO WITH MONEY } . IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO CHECK ALL OF THE FUSES INSIDE THE CAR, AS WELL AS UNDER THE HOOD, IGNITION SWITCH SHOULD BE ON WHILE TESTING.

I bought a new alternater and battery the alternater isnt charging the battery what else could be wrong


You have to check for B+ voltage at the heavier gage wire on the back of the alternator , could have a blown fusible link , plus the smaller gage wires at the connector that plug into the alternator mite have B+ voltage as well . You could look at a wiring diagram , that would show you . http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html .Plus watch Test and troubleshoot your charging system Battery alternator testing

Have you checked the alternator? The voltage regulator? Have you looked for frayed wiring?

Overchanging alternater (ECU?)


The ECU has no control on the voltage. Does your vehicle have a separate voltage regulator? If so that's your fault. A lot of alternators have the regulator built into them. The alternator needs to be put on a test rig away from the vehicle and the output tested, this will eliminate the vehicle, You could disconnect the wiring to the alternator, run three fly leads to the alternator and to a separate battery and run the engine and test the voltage on the spare battery. Wire 1: Battery neg to case of alternator Wire 2: Battery pos to + terminal on alt (the thick wire) Wire 3: Battery pos through a 5 watt bulb to the ind terminal (ignition light) 17 volt will blow another battery for sure.

My jeep has a alternater problem. I got a new alternater but it is not getting any voltage though it. The battery is new but It is not getting the right amount of voltage.


You have a break in the line somewhere. You need to test the circuit with a voltage meter. You should be able to find the dead zone on the wire. Just splice it and it should fix it. It is on that circuit, you know that. Just test them from the alternator to the battery. You will find the break. If you need anything, let me know. I am here to help in anyway I can. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Hi,my jetta battery light came on then it died so i put new battery in started fine but ran for only a few minutes and everything started to dim(lights,displays)then it just shut down.waited a few minutes...


sounds like your alternator is not charging the battery. with vehicle running take measure the voltage of the battery f it is higher then 13volts it is charging. if you do not have a volt meter remove the ground cable while the vehicle is running and the vehicle should stay running.

Every time i try to start my new engine i fry the ground wire on my alternater


Check all of the ground wires bad grounds will do this if you have a multi meter put it on 20 volts DC Disconnect the negitive terminal from the battery take the red lead from the meter and put it on the red terminal of the battery and the black lead from the meterand put it on the engine if you read any voltage you have a short in the system so a hot wire is touching a ground

Not charging


First tell me why you don't think it's charging.
Because of the voltage reading you are getting at the battery terminals? The range you want is between 13.6v to 14.2v. The higher the voltage the lower the amps. and true the other way, the lower the voltage the higher the amps. If you get a reading of 13.6v or lower, the alt is nearing or at max output. An alt can only run at maximum for around fifteen minutes and it will start slinging solder from overheating. It's a good indication the battery is either totally dead or junk. Charging above 14.2 the alternater is running wide open and is only putting out high volts which will cause the battery to boil , in turn destroying it. This is a bad alternater. All alternaters have integrated voltage regulater with the exception of ver few of the earlier ones. You cannot test an alternater by removing a battery cable to see if the engine keeps running without taking great risk of damaging the alt, regulator. So tell me why you feel it isn't charging. Remember an alt is not made to charge dead batteries. Their sole function is to maintain the battery charge. Without a battery, the alt won't last 10 seconds.
Hope to hear from you and good luck.
