Its possible that you either have a bad alternator or a bad battery. If you can drive the car to the nearest autozone they can check the alternator and battery there and swap either out for you. If you cant drive it then you should first remove the battery and take it to an auto parts store that will test it for you to tell you if its bad or not, if its not bad then most likely your alternator is bad but before you do any of these things check to make sure the battery cables are secure to the battery and to the starter and the ground point on the car.

How to charge a car battery while battery is in the car


No, do not disconnect your car's cables. Connect positive cable to positive one on charger cables, & negative to negative. Attach to DEAD battery FIRST. Then attach to car that's giving you a charge. BOTH CARS MUST BE OFF DURING ATTACHING PHASE. Then the car giving you a charge must start theirs. Let both sit like this for a few minutes (usually 3-5 minutes is plenty). Then try starting your car. If not charged enough, turn yours all the way off & continue charging for longer period of time. YOU DO NOT REMOVE THE CAR's OWN CABLES AT ANY TIME DURING OR AFTER THIS PROCESS, BUT ONLY WHEN A NEW BATTERY IS BEING PLACED IN YOUR CAR.

Batery wont charge when u jump,, new battery 5 months ago


You need to go to auto parts store and have them check that the alternator is charging the battery. They do this for free. Also have them check the battery to make sure that there is not a bad cell in the battery. This can happen from time to time. if all of that is good u may have a drain on the battery. Check that all lights go out when u shot down the car.

Battery wont charge


If you are taking your Battery OUT of the Car and it is not charging... That is your Battery

If you are attempting to charge your Battery IN the car with an External Charger, then you may have Corrosion on your Terminals.. Clean them and attempt to charge again.

If you are Trying to Charge the Battery with Running the Car, Test the Battery Voltage... It should be 12.4-12.8 Volts and then when you start the car, it should jump up to 13.4-14.6 Volts.

If the Numbers do not jump up, then it is your Alternator, if they do, then you have a Bad Battery

the battery wont stay charged? if youre putting in a fully charged battery and your car runs, but then the battery slowly dies, the problem will be your alternator. the alternator is what maintains a car batteries charge. try replacing the alternator. hope this helps.

Dash says battery not charging


Alternator is what charges the battery. The alternator isn't putting out enough of amps to charge your battery and you will get a light or gauge reading that the voltage is low.

Charging problem.. Wont charge battery


The instructions for installing a new alternator usually read to fully charge the battery (12.3 - 12.8 volt range). Otherwise, the alternator will be damaged when it initializes. I have seen some extreme damage result from installing a new alternator with a low-charge battery. The torque required to turn an alternator when damaged in this scenario is unbelieveable!
