Yes,it can over the battery if the voltage regulator doesn't work properly.For long usage,the alternator coils will be burned also.

Why is it my car not holding charge battery new alternator new run for a day or two and dies out


Faulty new alternator or wiring to battery is causing too much resistance to the battery to give it enough charge to re-charge it. Take the car to Autozone or Orielys and get them to test both the battery and alternator for free. If both pass, then it's most likely the cables from the battery/alternator need to be checked.

Battery will take a charge from a charger, but will not charge from driving. Alternator is ok


the alternator charges the battery thru the heavy lead on the back of the alternator that goes to the battery. make sure it is clean and tight. the alternator output should be 13-15 volts with engine running.

Have 97 acura won't stay charge changed battery


the battery wont stay charged? if youre putting in a fully charged battery and your car runs, but then the battery slowly dies, the problem will be your alternator. the alternator is what maintains a car batteries charge. try replacing the alternator. hope this helps.

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.

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!
