    I have the same problem with my wife's 99 Alero. Battery light came on then other indicators came on and car died. The battery was dead. Had the alternator rebuilt and started it up. After a few second light came on again. Alternator was gone through a second time, but the same result. I am researching a solution as well. I'm thinking a wire or cpu problem, but don't know if this alternator is cpu controlled.

Check the wires to and from your battery, including the wires to the alternator and power distribution block.

I had a similar problem in my olds 88. I found while replacing the corroded battery cables that the wire connecting to the alternator was also severly corroded, replaced all wires going to and from the battery and all has benn ok for the past few years.

if it wont stop charging then there is a bad regulator/rectafier,and it will need to be replaced.on most vehicles the reg/rec is usually inside of the alternator and in that case the alternator will need replacement,but in your case i am pretty sure that the reg/rec is separate from the alternator.In order to find out if it is separate from the alt call an auto parts store and ask them if they sell just the regulator/rectifier separate from the alternator.If they do then replace just the reg/rec.If it is not sold separately then replace the whole alternator

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.

My battery want stay charged up


If your battery is older than 3 years and you live in an extreme warm or cold envirnment, chances are one of the cells is dead. You will need to replace the battery if it wont hold the charge. Also bring the vehicle to an autozone or advanced auto parts store and have them do a free diagnostic on the alternator and voltage regulator. If the alternator is bad then that could also be your problem where the battery wont stay charged. A rule of thumb is that if you replace the alternator you should also replace the battery so as to avoid the new alternator from working overtime to try to bring up the charge on an old battery. These auto parts stores can also do a load test on your battery to see if it needs to be replaced free of charge.
