I replaced the alternator and battery in our 2000 buick regal, but it doesnt want to keep a charge still. Its just running off the battery. What would be the next solution?

Check the voltage at the battery when the engine is running. It should be 14 volts or more when the alternator is charging and around 12 volts if it is not.

Battery died when I use my inside light in my 86 regal

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, 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.

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!

1995 Buick Regal battery light is on after replacing bettery. Please help!!!

Battery light actually means charging system light. This indicates their is a fault with your charging system. You may have noticed your old battery slow down to nothing. First step is to check the alternator belt is intact, good condition and tension. Next see if the pulley is spinning freely. Then you will need to check your alternator charge rate> You will need a multimeter to check this otherwise will need to see your local auto-electrican to check. If you have a multi-meter, i can run you through the steps to check charge if you would like.

My wife's 1995 Buick Regal has no power

Sounds like a dead cell/shorted battery. 3 years is a little soon but with the fact that you recently replaced the alternator, I would suspect that your battery is done! Even a weak battery will let you jump one, bad cables usually will let you jump one, but a shorted/bad celll in a battery will prevent them from taking a jump. good luck

1993 buick regal start and stall

The average life of a battery is 3 good years, regardless how BIG, or how it cost. Anything after that is a blessing. Personally, I would replace the battery ASAP, and then with a FULLY CHARGED battery. Then drive, and see if the problem still remains. Hope this helps
