Battery and alternator issues


A battery place can test the battery and the alternator to see which one is faulty

otherwise get a volt meter and check the voltages from the alternator without the battery being connected it will be higher at approximately 13.8 volts and from the battery 12 Volts .

Alternator not charging battery (replaced alternator and same issue) tested and no codes showing, alternator shows good and battery shows good. Could be a break in a wire between the two or what Help


Yes. The field control wire feeding power into the alternator needs testing and the output from the alternator to your battery also needs testing. Either one can cause low charging of the battery. Corrosion or loose connections are common issues as well as broken strands of wire internally . A fuse or fuseable link sometimes burns out in the cable from the alternator to the battery .

My car needing a jump threw out the day


Ok I would have the battery tested. While testing battery make sure all connections are clean and tight on the battery terminals. If battery checks out to be good. Test the charging system, alternator. If alternator tests good make sure you belts are not slipping or worn and stretched out as this could cause a an inconsistent charge. While doing the battery test if posible do a draw test to see if anything is during current all the time as this could be draining or weakening the battery.

Why do i lose voltage intermittently from the alternator when i step on the brake ?


what engine size?
the PCM runs the show, and its bad. or wires bad to it.
your car has PCM regulator.
no charge battery light.?

1: takes a good battery and battery cables and lugs cleaned.
2: test the altenator, odd how 4 of yours all tested good but you replaced it 4 times, get it tested if good, its good.
3: then check that the charge .battery lamp works. if the lamp works
that means the PCM thinks that charge system is bad.
if the wires from the rear of the alt, to the battery red and Gy wires
are good all the way to PCM then the PCM is bad.
the big wire on rear of ALT , on one car had a bad lug. #6 wire.
he replaced the ALT 6 times. all wasted effort.
inspect the wiring first. that is free, and is simple fix.
and if the ALT casing is not grounded, all bets off.
same with battery minus lug not good, on BOTH ENDS>
one guy had his battery lug moved to frame, (wrong)
and this never worked.

1991 isuzu trooper II - new battery, battery tested good. NO POWER at all - no lights, no ignition dinging, no interior lights, no brake lights NOTHING!! any suggestion as to where to start tooking for...


Hello and welcome to FixYa!


If the battery light is on, I strongly suggest that you have the battery charged. It can be an indication of a weak battery or a faulty alternator. If the battery light still on after charging then the problem will surely be on the alternator itself. If that's the case the alternator should be replaced to resolve the problem.


If the battery won't hold charge even on a new alternator then the problem will be on the battery itself. It surely is in the end of it's service life and replacement will be necessary.


You may try to reset it to by removing the positive battery connector, letting it sit for at least 5mins. then reconnect it again. This will reset the system and can get the battery light off.


Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Replaced alternator and battery in 2002 Chevy Tahoe. Battery voltage remains between 9 and 14 (leaning more towards 9 and at times falling completely until trucks shuts off)


Hello,
When you say battery voltage how are you testing it? Are you looking at a gauge on the dash? Or are you physically testing it with a multi meter? If the truck is dying and you recently replaced the alternator and battery I would first suggest you to check all them connections again real good. Snug them all up. Check for corrosion and clean as needed. Did you replace the battery and alternator with new/re-manufactured battery and alternator? The alternator needs to put out at least 13.6 volts to charge your 12 volt battery or the battery will not maintain a charge. However the alternator runs the vehicle once it is started. The battery is used only to start the car and then the alternator runs it. So if your vehicle starts and runs and then dies you may have a bad alternator. Check your connections first and then test the alternator with a multi meter. Anything less than 13.6 volt will not suffice. 14+ volts would be the hopeful output of a good alternator.
regards, Tony

The charge light came on: what's up? It still drives ok


The charge light comes on whenever the battery has a low charge.The alternator charges the battery.When this light comes on,it usually means the alternator isn't charging the battery.I would suggest having the alternator tested and replaced,if need be.

Car shut off while driving. now after it has been parked for 8 hrs, getting no response at all. charing system failure warning came on. as well as going into battery saving mode.


Just based upon the information provided it appears that either you lost your alternator belt, or that the alternator went out on your car. (this would include the connector coming loose on the alternator)

I would suggest that you just take the battery out & get it tested and charged if possible, you'll need a fully charged battery to test the charging system and to get the car to start. If the belt is not missing or off track, when you install the battery & start the car, if the alternator light comes on, the alternator more than likely will need to be replaced. You of course could take the alternator off & take it to the auto parts store for testing while they charge your battery overnight free. (autozone & others) That will more than likely provide you with the answer to your problem. Good Luck

Battery does not stay charged has to be jump started each time I go to start the vehicle


There is a defect in the charging system...battery juice that is being used is not being replaced. This is typically caused by a faulty alternator or voltage regulator. Take the car to an autoparts store and have the alternator tested. Most parts stores will test the alternator at no charge. If the alternator is defective it will have to be replaced. Hope this helped you. Best wishes.
