We had a problem where our taurus wouldn't charge and it was due to the master fuse located under the hood. it is located on the side of the fuse where the wire from the battery connects to the fuse box.

SOURCE: alternator not charging battery

You may need to have it tested to see if it's working the connections on the battery may not let the charge through or the battery itself may not take a charge if it's no good

Charging system failed. Why is new alternator output ranging between 11 1/2 and 12 1/2 volts?


11 1/2 to 12 1/2 is not charging . That's less then battery state of charge , Battery stat of charge should be 12.6 volts , when charging with a volt meter you should see 13.1 to 14.1 volt at the battery posts . Is there a battery symbol lit on your instrument cluster ? Is there battery B+ voltage at the wires hooked to the alternator How to Test an Alternator

2012 Grand Caravan. How do I turn the battery light off after installing a new battery?


Test the alternator. The battery light is for the charging system. Once the charging system is working with the engine running, the light should go off. If your light stays on with engine running, the alternator may need service or replacement.

To test the charging system, just put a voltmeter on the battery with engine running. The voltmeter should register at least 13.5 volts- alternator is charging. If you only show battery voltage with engine running, like 12.2-12.8 volts, the alternator or charging system is not working. The battery light should be on to signify this.

1998 Ford Explorer 5.0 battery won't charge,


Probably because your Battery is Bad... Try Charging and LOAD TESTING our battery and then if the battery tests good, Test your Alternator and see if it is charging properly.

Maybe when you installed the New Alternator, you missed a connection or have too many wires on one connector... You have have to take some pics to see what is going on.

My 2006 Chevy impala light came saying check battery charging system went to start light comes on goes to start but dies right.., it won't stay running.., does this mean I need a new battery? Also the...


Maybe.
It means the alternator is not charging the battery.
The battery could have a dead cell, or the alternator could be faulty, or a wiring problem between the two components.
You would need to have the battery and alternator tested.

Dead battery, replaced battery and alternator but still no charge!


if its not charging while running at14.5 volts or so you have a charging problem mabey no power to the alternator if its charging at 14.5 or so and the batery load tests good and its going dead over night you have a draw from some component in the system.

Have New battery and Alternator, battery still won't stay charged.


Since you are having a new battery and alternator the charging circuit of the electronic charging unit is a possible suspect.
All what is required is to check the charging voltage when the engine is started, if there is no increment of voltage when the engine runs the alternator then the connection from the alternator must be checked. Check the output from alternator, check the relay box which contains the charging unit. It can be a failure of the rectification or the stabilising circuit, the unit must be replaced.

Two new alternators on and the car still will not charge and it kills alternator. Need to know what to look for in the wiring harness. Auto Zone tested alternators before installation. Still won't...


Go to web site WWW.HMASERVICE.COM and register your vehicle by VIN #. You'll then have access to shop manuals, wiring diagrams, technical service bulletins, illustrations, etc.
Provided there is no problem with the vehicle's wiring, find out what the charging current is to the battery. I've seen batteries which TEST good, but when under a CHARGE short out internally.
Example: Tested a battery & charging system on a Hyundai Elantra, the battery tested "Healthy" but indicated there was a CHARGING SYSTEM PROBLEM. I checked the battery voltage while the engine was running and found the battery voltage at 14.3 VDC (which was normal). I then used a Digital DC Clamp meter arount the positive (+) battery cable & found the battery was charging at 70 Amps!.. it was supposidly already fully charged (should have only been taking 4 to 6 amps when fully charged).

Best guess without looking/diagnosing the vehicle myself

Maybe this will help.

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!
