You need to check the actual alternator. The starter has nothing to do with the charging system so replacing that wouldn't solve a charging issue. Also make sure the battery is good

Car wont start has charged battery lights and radio come on new starter. drainging battery even though the battery is fully charged its reading its not tempature gauge reading hot but its not runn

If the problem began when (or soon after) installing the new starter, start checking there. Ensure that all cables to the starter are tight. As a second possibility, if the new starter was actually a rebuilt replacement, the solenoid could be faulty. (I went through three rebuilt starters on my son's truck until we got one that worked properly.)

Hyosung GV 650 wont start. Battery is fully charged and starter don't even click when trying to start?

This will be either the starter solenoid is faulty or the starter motor needs replacing.Have the solenoid checked before removing the starter motor.

Hi if battery is fully charged the charging system wont put in more than it needs so 12.5 volts is adequate try putting the lights on and raising the revs and checking the output at the battery if its still the same or lower then you could have a problem usual faults are with the voltage regulater rectifier breaking down if you follow the wires back from the alternater/generator should be three yellow wires to an aluminium finned block under the sidepanel check the output to this unit from the alternater and see if its the same or similar output if your only getting 12.5 volts from the alternater then your problem is with your alternater and it may need replacing but if voltage is good 13.5+
then you either have broken wires to the regulater rectifier or a faulty regulater rectifier a good swop
if a genuine regulater rectifier isnt available and the fact that they were allways a bit trashy any way is to fit one from a honda cb250 superdream as they were much easier to find and cheaper to buy second hand from a breakers yard

Check the battery connections. 95% of the problems I have had with electrical problems are at the battery connections because a small amount of corrosion has built up. This will not allow the charging system to charge the battery properly and is the most often overlooked problem, even by trained shops. Remove the terminals and clean then thoroughly with a terminal wire brush. Its a cone shaped wite brush you can get and any NAPA or equivilant store. Clean both the battery side and the wire side. Forget useing thos goofy grean and red corrosion resistant discs.

Replace the terminals and charge the battery. I think that should fix your issue.

Wont start turns over and clicks even with battery charger on jump start mode

Sounds like a bad starter. Even though the battery is charged the starter is to week to turn the motor over. Try replacing the starter and see it that helps. If that does not work. Go to a dealership mechanic. Thanks for asking!

Looks like you have replaced all of the key parts, and then some. At this point I would verify that the alternator is charging the battery. With engine off, check battery voltage. Start the engine and check thre voltage again. It should climb to charging voltage, around 13.0 to 13.5 volts. If it doesn't, check all connections. On a vehicle this old, I would start with the ground circuits.
Good luck.

The only thing I could suggest is that if you bought a remanufactured alternater you may have gotten a bad one. It tends to be hit or miss with any remanufactured part.
