Here's the alternator test before you spend money: Start the car, then disconnect the positive batter cable from the battery. If it stays on, the alternator is fine. check your relays under the hood, located in the fuse box. Tap each one, if you get a response when you tap or wiggle a relay, change it

Brand new battery and car won`t start after not being used for less than 24 hours

The most common issue is a loose battery terminal. If one is loose it will not have the ability to charge or to put out enough to start your car. If the terminals are tight then I would consider the alternator next. The easy way to test this is to jump start the car and take off the negative terminal, if it dies the alternator is bad. If you installed the new battery and just let it sit and it passes the alternator test then you probably have a short somewhere. The short is the hardest to pinpoint most of the time.

Just got a new battery 2 months ago, now my battery light is on an the battery died.

Just had a similar issue with my 09 CVPI.
Charge the battery, start the car.
Car starts and is running, good.
Now disconnect the ground from the battery.
The car still runs. Battery or wire issues something is draining the battery.
Car dies. The alternator is shot.
Got to junk yard find one for your vehicle.
My "battery" light came on and I pulled both the battery and the alternator too them to be tested. Both tested good on their systems. Did the above test and changed the alternator. No issues as of yet and no "battery light. Problem solved.
Junk yard alternator $25.00, $5.00 core.
New alternator $355.xx plus tax and $15.00 core.
Core is money I will get back when I turn in the old alternator.

I hooked up the jumper cables wrong to a Mini Cooper 2005 and it wont start. What should I do?

load test the battery. Test the alternator with a multimeter, it should read between 13.3 and 14.6 volts dc. Test the alternator at idle and rev the engine to 2000 rpm. The multimeter probes are place on the battery terminals. Look for corrosion between the battery and the battery clamps. Baking soda cleans the corrosion.

My battery dies i replaced a brand new alternator but still dosen't charge tomthe battery

The battery most likely has dead cells and not charging due to the alternator .The alternator is doing what it should, your battery just can't hold the charge the alternator is putting out. Go have the battery tested at a local auto zone or advance auto store. Free to check

Changed battery and alternators, but after a few min, alternator putting out 13.5 volts and battery is not being charged. In addittion car dies on iidel.

13.5 volts is not an unreasonable voltage. How do you know it's not taking a charge with the new alternator and new battery? I might have it checked at the battery retailer using their starting/charging testing machine.

We changed the battery because nothing would come on, after changing the battery the new one died the same day, went to auto zone was told I needed a new alternator. Changed that today jumped the car and...

You may have received a faulty alternator from the store. I have bought alternators from AutoZone before and in one instance had to take it back 3 times before I got one that worked correctly. Also, you should not have jumped the car, you should have started it up on battery and alternator. That would have told you if the battery was drained or the alternator you had just put in was bad. If you put the drained battery back in the car to run it, the car would have died anyway. Whenever I have changed an alternator out I always let it run in the driveway for awhile to make sure that both the battery and alternator are functioning correctly.
