You have a bad battery. If the alternator tests good and the battery will not charge that means that the battery has a bad cell in it. If a cell goes bad it will not take a charge. If you test it it will read good though.

I recommend you replace the battery first.

Did you check power an grounds at the alternator ? The heavy gage wire on the back of the alternator should have B+ voltage , if not fusible link is blown . The connector ,pin's 1 & 3 should have B+ voltage also . There are videos on youtube on checking charging systems . Do you know how to do automotive electrical testing ? How to use a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ?

Where is the alternator fuse located on a 2005 Chevy Trailblazer


This charging system is computer controlled , the main heavy gage wire on the back of the alternator should have B+ voltage . The other end is at the battery positive terminal an has a fusible link , that's the only fuse ! Use a volt meter an test for B+ voltage before trying to replace the fusible link . The other two wires (in the connector ) go to the PCM engine computer !

inspect 3 wire connector for burn or lose connection
disconnect 3 pin wire and start the engine.if the light stay on you have shot to ground.

Battery is good, had alt checked, its good, still not charging


Assuming that the checks you had done are in fact correct, then the most likely problem would be a bad fusible link in the charging line from the alternator to the battery. The easiest way to test this is to remove the red wire that is bolted to the rear of the alternator and check for voltage there )(on the wire). It should read the battery voltage level. If is is zero volts, or a very low voltage as compared to the battery, then the fusible link in the line is either severed or very close to it. A shop can find and replace the link at a reasonable cost. A DIYer can do it also, providing he can find the link location. Fusible links are installed in these lines to act as protection for the battery and alternator under high current conditions. Fusible links can also crack and break from excessing flexing and age.

Battery not charging. had charging system tested. all okay except alternator. removed alternator and had tested. replaced alternator. system still not charging.


Check the connections and the fusible link. A fusible link is an inline fuse in the wiring. You will need a multimeter to test and troubleshoot. Check that when the ignition is on, that you are getting 12 volts to the lead to the alternator. The ignition switch controls turning on the charging system.

Good luck, jim

Check main fuses to the alternator, there are also fusible links and one may have blown.

Not charging


Possibly a fusible link somewhere in the circuit has burned through and disconnected the circuit.A wiring diagram would be needed to look for the location of any fusible links Ohms check the wires involved in the alternator charging circuit to verify continuity.
