I would be checking the external regulator ( if it is not internal in the alternator ) as that will stop a charge for the battery

What could cause an altenator not to get power


Alternators give charge not get a charge. Check that you have connected up the wires to the alternator correctly. Check drive belt for tension and condition. If it still will not charge have a qualified auto electrician check it over.

If the altenator shows good, what would cause a new battery to go dead over night?


Hello,
An open circuit, ( an electrical short ), could cause it.

A bad connection at the battery terminals could cause it, not only can a bad connection prevent the vehicle from starting, it also prevents the alternator from putting a charge back in to the battery.

Often the battery cable clamps can crack on the bottom side and prevent the clamps from being tight enough for a good connection.

Also, very common in cold weather, even with a brand new battery, the new battery may not have the minimum cold cranking amps, ( MCCA ), to start an engine in the cold weather. You may want to make sure, if you already haven't, that your battery meets the manufacturer's MCCA requirement.

I hope this helps you.

1987 corvette not charging put in new battery,new altenator,soon as battery looses its charge car dies,changed altenators three times


So you are buying junk parts, or you really dont have a Alternaor problem? Have the charging system checked out by a Qualified Reapair Shop NOT the guy at the parts store selling you these wonderful parts. They will want to verfiy that the Alternaotor and Battery are indeed good/bad and check all connections, terminals, and ground points. If these are all good , then they need to find out what is going on.

1995 Jeep wrangler not charging properly


lf you have replacement cable ends on your battery, check that wires are not corroded under the straps. Also check alternator ground (run a ground wire directly to the alt case) I have seen "lazy" regulators at times but this is very rare. Also make sure drivebelt is tight enough to prevent slipping. Has your battery been charged and load tested?

Altenator will not charge battery


seems to me you neglected to reinstall the ground cable body (to the eng.) possibly?
What did the 'new' engine come out of?
I hope you bought the alternators from auto zone or something and are getting them replaced under the lifetime warranty...

This is what I would do... remove the battery cable from the battery after you shut of everything in the car... lights blower fan et al... and see if you are getting an arc when you reattach it. That will give you a clue to whether a dead short is involved (if it arcs strong ) .
if you only get a spark it is normal , as there are draws that you can't dislocate w/o removing fuses.
If you dont get the dead short arc , then put a lead on the - NEG. post and ground the neg. to the engine dirrectly from the battery to any bolt on the engine bigger than 10mm. ( a bracket or the instilation hooks on the eng. should give you a reliable ground. if that causes an arc while the car is running my first thought is correct.
The lack of a good solid ground to the engine will cause the stalling out due to the numerous electrical componants that do thier job via variations in voltage. This voltage is measured in very small incriments,
and any deviation from set limits will cause your engine to run poorly.
It is my assumption that your battery starts the car , then the sole source of electric is being drawn from the altenater .

HOW TO REWIRE THE ALTERNATOR AFTER WENCH REMOVAL


why the big deal two wires and a ground run to altenator small wire connector is the warning light and the big connector goes to the battery or the battery /starter connection and thats it winch has nothing to do with anything regarding charging,it will be connected directly to the battery.

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
