92 Isuzu trooper.... Alternator went out.. Replaced it.. Charged battery.. Started.. Ran for 10 mins no problem.. Turned it off.. Now it won't start.. I was told maybe needs new starter??? Any other

Check to see if the battery is really getting charged when the engine is running. Also find that the relay wirings to the relay from the alternator broken. The function of this relay is to turn those dash lights off and supply current to turn the air con relay on when the alternator is charging, also you will find that your air con and fans wont turn on either. this relay acts like a self preservation for the battery if the alternator fails cuting out things that draw a lot of current.

    I have a 97 trooper v6 the alternator discharges when hit the gas have replaced 3 times

    Their is a relay in the black box of relays and fuses under the bonnet. The blue relay is the charging one. I have changed a good few alternator's and a common problem with isuzu alternators is they over charge this burns out the blue relay so you will need to replace it if faulty. You can check it with the black relay beside the blue one. Take out the blue one and put the black one in its place start up and try it for charging. Only use the black one as a trial put it back and buy a blue one if needed. Cheer's

    Will not start

    Normally the problem like this is caused by faulty starter relay.This can be solved by replacing the starter's relay contact mechanism.After a prolong time the starter relay contact mechanism will get worn out as a result of arcing.Check also to make sure there is no loose cable at the connection.
