I would bet you are moving the positive battery cable? Here is the possible problem.......... The positive cable hooks to the battery terminal on one end and to the starter on the other. The one end to the starter is bolted on by one bolt. This does sometime get loose and all you have to do is take a wrench and tighten it. Now if this is not the problem the Battery cable may have sever corrosion inside the installation and when you bend it or move it about it starts working (just replace the whole cable). Either way it is a simple fix and easy on the wallet.

Alternator?


I would say that you have a bad battery . If the alternator is charging ok but the battery is bad all the current will go to the dying cell . Have a load test done on the battery to eliminate it as a source of a problem. Next have the alternator bench tested as there may be a problem in the rectifier pack

Battery warning light came on while driving then later went off. Voltage at battery was 13-14+ then only 12-13 when light went back on later.


Try taking the cables off the battery terminals and cleaning them with a battery brush. Then make sure they are tight when you put them back on. They may not have been tightened properly when the new battery was installed. If that doesn't work take the battery back to where you bought it and have them test it under load. It may be new but it may have one cell that is weak. If that checks good then I would start the car and remove the positive battery terminal. Use your multimeter from the ground to positive terminal to make sure the voltage regulator is putting out enough voltage.

2003 HONDA ELEMENT DIES WHILE DRIVING


Sounds like a bad connection somewhere. Maybe the thieves or the repair shop damaged/loosened something. I would start the car and start wiggling/moving wires and connections to try to narrow down where the problem is. Start at the alternator connections, both at the alternator and where the thick wire connects, probably at the power distribution box but it may go straight to the battery; don't recall on that car.

Cheapest first test is to have a load test done on the battery to check for failing cell. Next is to check the tension and condition of the alternator drive belt as it the alternator is not being driven at correct rpm then all the power that it is producing is being used and there is not enough to recharge the battery

Not getting current to battery,I replaced everything new, altenator regulator celnoid Battery and still will not charge battery


Hello, I'll try to give you a few ideas. Check whether your Armature and Field wires are in the right position. Then there are your plug-in wires at the Alternator connector. To generate a charge from your Alternator you need power going into the plug-in and that power comes from the Ignition switch.

If your Ignition switch is bad or if the power is not going to the Alternator because of wiring, then the Alternator will not put out current. I noticed the year of your truck is a 1981. Sometimes if the wiring has burned up, the last connection is the dash gauge. Sometimes the gauge will burn out. If you have an add on gauge and bought the truck as-is, the wiring to the gauge may have been done wrong and took out the Regulator and Alternator.

You can put on a decent gauge wire and bypass your gauge to see if the battery will get a charge. I don't have books that far back, check with an Autoparts about a fusible link for the charging system.

I hope my solution helps you.

It sounds like you either have a low battery, faulty alternator, or you have a wiring issue. Call a local auto parts store (checker, Oreilly, Autozone ect..) They usually offer free battery and alternator diagnostic if you get your car there. If that doesn't find the problem check the wiring to the battery and to the alternator.

Check alternator voltage at back of alternator ( big wire ), if you have no less then 13.5 volt's, alternator is ok, check for blown alternator fuse or break at wire from back of alternator to starter then to battery, could be a bad fuse link at starter.

98 Maxima - Battery and Brake Lights flickering


First off - 125K mi is nothing on that car (as long as you maintain it). The alternator is actually also the voltage regulator and this aspect of the alternator frequently fails before the actual alternator itself does and causes irregular voltage - so it makes sense you drove without the battery connected but you probably were having irregular power instead of a nice steady 14V (the other thing to know is that even if they do show 14V all the time the amperage may differ, both problems = change the alternator).

My subaru wont start...no juice...


No. You have a Bad Connection with the Battery and the Battery Cables. Remove the Battery Cables, Get a Can of Coca Cola and pour onto the Ends of the Wires that Connect to the Battery. They should Fizzle like Hydrogen Peroxide. This will eat away the Corrossion on them. Replace the Battery Terminals and Tighten. Also, Check the Tension on your Belt. If it is even a Little loose it will not allow the Alternator to Recharge The Battery while Driving.
