The heat is probably due to corrosion...there is resistance to the current flow so it heats up....if you see corrosion on the holder you might try a spray contact cleaner or gently scrape with a knife blade.

Have a 1985 chevy c30 silverado put a new alternator and new battery on it and my charging guage dont go up like it should

Most likely issue is a large draw on the accessory wire. Try pulling accessory fuses to see if one of them results in higher voltage on the gauge. If you find one, troubleshoot that accessory for a draw.

Have to boost it every second day.think fuse for power locks is draining battery by working all the time

remove the negative battery cable place a test light between the cable and the battery if the light is bright you have a draw remove fuses one at a time until the light goes dim then see what the fuse goes to that will be the draw unplug and unbolt the alternator as well it has diodes that can go bad

Battery not getting charged although the alterator is putting out.truck will run but kills battery after its been charged with a is my email.

Does it die while running? Check the voltage at the battery with the truck running to see if it is getting the same voltage that the alternator is putting out. Will it not start after sitting for a bit? It could just be a bad battery not taking a charge because the lead plates or the terminal inside the battery is broken. You may also have a drain on the battery that is discharging it. You can check for a drain by disconnecting the negative cable and hooking a test light in line between th negative battery terminal and the cable. If the test light lights up bright, there is a drain and you can start pulling fuses one at a time to see what kills the light.

Have to charge battery after it has sat for 6 plus hours. We have new alternater and battery. They work good. Any idea as to what could be draining battery? Checked all fuses.

its obvious there is a drain somewhere was this problem present before the battery and alternator change,if so suspect one of the new parts .but if not then start by removing the negative terminal and place a test light across the connection the test light might light up due to small power uses like clock in vehicle. but if its very bright then start pulling fuses until it goes out or dims down find what that fuse goes to and you have you culprit.

Charging issue

it sounds like you have a draw on the system. in otherwords something electrical is staying on. take a test light, disconnect the battery cable loose on the neg side. hook the test light between the neg cable and the neg post on the battery.. if the light is bright start pulling fuses out until the light goes out or gets dimmer, because you have to allow for clock etc..once the light goes out find out what that fuse power ups. see if any thing on that circuit is staying on.
