Alternator And Battery

Recommended Posts

We recently replaced the battery and alternator. Now the car won't hold a charge. What wire would possibly not be making a connection? (This is the second battery and alternator in the past 3 months)

Welcome to the LOC straight in with a question eh!

When you say the battery won't hold charge is it losing charge slowly say overnight or does the car not start minutes after tuning the engine off after a long run.

Is the alternator warning light coming on?

If you have a digital meter check the alternator output voltage at tick over then with increased engine revs just google alternator testing.

Is your serpentine drive belt in good order?

Are all the body to engine earth (ground) points good?

Finally you may have two faulty batteries/alternators?
