These cars are notorious for there ECU/ TCM issues. Sometimes disconnecting them from the harness and applying some dielectric grease to them helps, other times replacing them fixes it. on rarer cases I have seen bad wires and faulty connectors. The end synopsis is that you are going to have to take a few hours and hunt down the delinquent connection and make a simple wire splice.

What would cause black soot /smoke around alternator on 04 pacifica and then it not start with fully charged battery?


The battery gives the voltage necessary to start the vehicle, then after it is started the alternator will spin off the accessory belt and recharge the battery for the next startup.If your alternator was bad the vehicle would start but turn off shortly after driving a few miles. After making sure the battery is charge, clean the battery terminals and make sure they're tightly connected to the battery. If the engine doesnt turn over, it may be your starter. The alternator on the Pacificas arent really hard to take off since theyre located on the top,so if you're second guessing its the alternator, then just release the belt tensioner pulley and loosen the alternator bolts and have it tested at your local auto parts store. Good luck

Battery Light still on


The new alternator is probably ok.
I would say you burned a fuseable link in the wiring harness.
The alternator has a fuse wire between it and the battery to protect it from overload.
Have someone check the wires coming out of the back of the alternator. The big wire should have battery voltage, the small wires energize the alternator when you start the engine.

How do i know when my alternator is going bad


If the batt light is on, the alternator is not charging the battery.
If the battery won't hold a charge, it could be failing.
If you are having a specific problem with your PT Cruiser or Mustang, let us know what it is.

Low battery voltage light battery won't hold charge 2002 S60


Yup, time for a new alternator. Most models have the regulator built into the alternator, so it makes it a little bit more expensive - but it will resolve your problems. If you are driving at night with a load on your charging system (lights and radio on), you will probably notice you have dim headlights. If you don't change it soon, you'll end up having to replace your battery too.
