Re: alternator is bad where is it located
It's on the lower passenger side front of the engine, tucked under the side. When you stand in front of the car and look down the front of the motor where the belts are, it's driven by the lower, leftmost pulley. The easiest way to remove it is to raise the car up and remove the sway bar, and take it out from the bottom. To remove it from the top, you'll have to take the radiator out and most of the plumbing up top, and it adds a lot of work. Be careful since there are a few small wire connections on the back of the alternator. Three wires in total - don't miss one or you'll yank the wire out of it's connector and screw yourself.

alternator is going bad or just the regulator circuit to keep output constant is going bad. if alternator is the problem, first check for oxidation on cables, if they are ok probably the brushes inside alternator are worned out. you need a new alternator or need it to be fixed. if regulator is bad you need a new regulator or the broken component to be fixed. either ways this must be an easy fix. 1 hour job.
Sounds like a battery charging problem,all cars today have a complex system of electronics,and they must have the correct voltage, I would suggest checking the main alternator fuse in the box located in engine compartment,if ok suspect alternator.
Your alternator cant be good if all those dash lights are on then the alternator is bad, reoplace it and make sure the battery is tested, a bad battery can and will destroy a new alternator, also make sure the connections at the rear of the alternator are good, the reason for car dieing in motion is due to the battery draining down and theres not enough voltage to keep ecletrical components going, you must have a bad connection at alternator or alternator is bad. and the last thing to check would be the alt fuse which should be located near the postive battery terminal. good luck.
the voltage regulator on that old of a chrysler should still be internal (inside the alternator). it could be just bad alternators, i've ran into many endless amounts of defective alternators. the most was 7 in a row on one vehicle from two different parts suppliers. otherwise it could be bad wiring, loose connections, burnt contacts, or a bad short.
fuse will be located in the engine compartment if it has one. mine was doing the same think but it was a bad ground wire. if you want to test this you can simply use a jumper cable and attach it to the negative battery terminal. then to the engine block. it should start charging if that was the problem
Have your charging system checked,your voltage regulator could be bad and the regulator is located inside the Alternator. If the regulator is not charging at least 13.9 volts , This means it is most likely that it is bad. Replace the alternator to fix the problem correctly.
I need more information please, bad wiring... not enough will need to know more, such as, The wires to the alternator are bad, previous owner did a bad wiring job to the alternator, or i messed up the wiring to the alternator and need some advice.
