My alternator wont charge my battery. both are new, new fuses, and wires and cables


Hi Paula, As both the battery and alternator have been replaced, there are only few remaining reasons why the alternator will not charge. Make sure of the socket connection being fitted correctly and that there is a good connection on each of the connectors inside the connector. Check and make sure the earth earth connection between the battery and the engine is correct and that both ends are tightened correctly. Inspect the 'Alt' fuse in the fuse holder and also the fusible link. Also make sure that the belt is tight. Regards John

I REPLACED THE ALTERNATOR IN MY 2001 MITSUBISHI MIRAGE AND THE BATTERY BUT IT STILL WONT CHARGE ,THE NEW ALT. WAS CHECKED AND IS GOOD. ALSO ALL FUSES ARE GOOD. AM I MISSING SOMETHING?


You need to check the charging circuit which is most important to the automatic charging of the battery to keep it in brim condition. Hence the alternator current will feed into the charging regulator which determines how much the battery needs to be charged . check this unit by tracing the alternator wiring and use a ammeter to check the battery charge current. get help if you are not equipped.

Car will start but wont restart after running several minutes.


Is your battery any good? A bad battery will not charge or charge properly and be at the root cause of your issue.

Battery light will not operate


Check all fuses and verify no melted/damaged wires. You may have damaged something on the charging circuit by reversing the current. The battery light comes on when the alternator is not charging so I would double check the alternator at a different location as it sometimes will show good at one place and bad at another...Also have the battery checked to make sure there was no damage to it in the process and pray that the main fuse blew before any severe damage was caused.

check 10 amp ECM fuse. Your alternator voltage is regulated by the ECM. If the fuse is good, consider replacing the ECM.

I put my 87 4runner in reverse and it blows the 15A engine fuse


Hello there:
I would first refer to the owners manual to make sure that the fuse that is blowing is of the right amps also check the fuses under the hood too. than i would check to see if there is any shorts anywhere and get them fixed. You can also take the car to autozone and have the free diagnostics done on the vehical ok?
hope that htis has helped out some.
best regards mike

Check all the large main fuses, one of these usually burns out in a reverse jump, that is most likely the problem. The fuse you need to check is fuse 1 and fuse 7 (both are maxi 40 AMP) in the the under the hood fuse box, also check fuse 9, this is the computer fuse, it is under the hood also.
