Put a volt meter on the battery terminals and watch what happens as you turn stuff on and off.

Why would the alternator test good off the truck but not charge


check the wiring on the vehicle to and from the alternator. Usually, the alternator needs excite voltage or it won't charge. Also, There is a circuit from alternator to battery, if something wrong with that circuit, the battery won't be charged even though the alternator is working fine.

What is model year? I don't know if your alternator is computer controlled?

I have a new battery and a new altenator and the battery is dying


Check your Main and Alternator fuses under the hood. The alternator fuse is connected directly to your alternator, and if it is blown the alternator will not charge the battery.

Also, check your alternator belt and check your wiring to and from the alternator for damage or shorts. Else, you may have gotten a bad alternator.

2006 chevy cobalt. replaced motor, got it running but fan is barely engaging and alternator wont charge the battery...any thoughts?


check belt tension, check power alternator field and armature windings according to specs (smaller wires going to alternator harness) check voltage drop on main alternator cable going to battery, less than 0.4 volts ok, check alternator ground (less than 0.1v ok) check if alternator is regulating voltage in alternator or by pcm computer, also check if vehicle has a load detector to increas rpm while under electrical load....

Alternator not charging battery


Yes in that case the alternator needs to be checked by the meter.It should show exact 12 volt.If its not showing exact voltage then the alternator is faulty.But if the alternator is checked ok then its a connection problem between alternator and battery.Also at local garages they have spare alternator.If possible,get the car checked with spare alternator before going for new alternator. Thanks.Helpmech.

CHECK POSITIVE BATTERY FEED CABLE TO ALTERNATOR AND CHECK ALTERNATOR FIELD WIRING THEY ARE CLOSE TO THE ENGINE BODY. GO TO AUTO PARTS STORE GET SOME FLEXIBLE CONDUCT PLACE ALTERNATOR WIRES IN IT AND REROUTE WIRES THEY COULD BE RUBBING INTO BODY CAUSING SHORT BLOWING OUT ALTERNATOR.THE CADILLAC 4.6L AND 4.9L ENGINES THE ALTERNATOR IN A TIGHT SPOT CLOSE TO THE ENGINE WHERE THE ALTERNATOR WIRES CAN RUB BODY SHORT OUT.CHECK WIRES AROUND ALTERNATOR CAREFULLY.
