The alternator is not charging, even if it's new, you probably have a fuse that is blown. Look in the fuse panel under the hood where the big fusible link style fuses are held. I think you'll find that one of the larger fuses in this panel is bad. They are hard to see sometimes, a multimeter may be needed to check them.

My car recently had an issue with charging the battery. We replaced the altenator. That did not fix the problem. Batter was still not getting charged. So we got a new regulator. Still nothing. I...


ALL OF THE FUSES NEED TO BE CHECKED WITH A FUSE TESTER. THERE ARE FUSES UNDER THE HOOD & INSIDE THE VEHICLE. ALSO, WITH THE MOTOR RUNNING AT A HIGH IDLE, PUT A VOLTMETER ON THE BATTERY. IT SHOULD READ BETWEEN 13.80 & 14.90 VOLTS. IF IT READS LOWER THAN 13.0 IT IS NOT CHARGING. IF IT READS TOO LOW MEASURE THE VOLTAGE AT THE ALTERNATOR WITH THE MOTOR RUNNING. IF IT READS TOO HIGH THE ALTERNATOR IS CHARGING BUT THE VOLTAGE IS NOT GETTING TO THE BATTERY. YOU MAY HAVE TO REPLACE THE WIRE BETWEEN THE ALTERNATOR & THE BATTERY.

Battery died (or not). When I give it a jump, the car starts, but as soon I remove the jump cable, car turns off.. What could be the issue>


Your issue is indicating two problems. First let's talk about how your charge system works so that you can see what happened. The battery is there to start the engine. At the point the engine starts, the alternator takes over and provides power to the engine and also charges the battery for the next time you start your car. If the alternator fails to work, the engine runs solely off the battery. The car should have indicated that the charge system is not working, maybe you saw a battery light on your dashboard. After some time, the battery is depleted and will not start the car or be able to run the engine. So it appears that you have a defective alternator, and also your battery is either discharged, or is also bad. When you hook up your car to jumper cables, you are running off of your buddy's charge system/battery, so when you disconnect them, your car dies.

2002 s2000 will crank but not fire


your battery may be dead dead. The electric clicking is a telltale sign that the battery is weak or depleted and does not have enough juice to turn over the starter. This is extremely common when the car is left to sit for an extended period without being used.

the clicking you hear is the starter solenoid trying to engage the starter, but the battery is to weak to do so.

There are a couple solutions. First you can get a set of jumper cables and jump the s2000 with anther battery. Once the car is running the battery will alutomatically begin to recharge.

the second is to buy and use whats called a trickle charger or 'battery tenderizer' this is a small device that you plug into the car and it will automatically keep the battery charged over extended periods of time without the risk of over charging the battery. If you use one of these it will also slowly charge yoru current battery enough overnight for it to work in the morning

Battery not charging


I would check the altenator again. if you didnt disconnect the battery and a spark shot off while installing the new starter it could have decharged the spool on the inside of the altenator to where the spool no longer charges. if you have the altenator checked for consistant charging and it comes up good check the relay for the altenator it most like will have messed up the relay. to make a long solution short check the relay for the altenator it will be in the relay box under the hood.

CHARGING SYSTEM


well for starters your altenator is bad because what it is dolinging is over charging the battery hence why it boiled off the water/acid in the battery. the regulater is intergrated into the altenator. there is not a short because numberone your car would not start and two your battery would explode. i never test a battery or altenator at a store like napa or Oreilly's because they are not mechanics ......they are parts guys. your altenator should charge the battery at no more than 14 volts and the average is 13.5 volts. you need to replace the altenator the reason why you are losing a charge is be cause as the car is running the battery is being discharged because the regulator is defective in the altenator. please rate this thanks

well Marie the reason your vehicle is acting this way is because even though you put new battery in you still have to have a viable altenator to run the vehicle. the battery is only used to start the vehicle and run the radio and lights and other accessories. while the vehicle is running the altenator is not only suppose to charge the battery but it is suppose to supply the amprage to energize and coolapse the coil to give the vehicle spark. a bad altenator while driving doesn't charge the battery it drains it . a quick check is to have the vehicle running and then remove the positive battery cable if it dies you know it's the altenator.... please rate this and good luck keep me posted
