Alternator is not charging the battery. The battery has been tested & will hold a charge. The alternator has been tested and is also good putting out 75 amps. I've checked the connections, all appear clean & solid. I found no blown fusible links. If you pull the negative cable off of the battery while the truck is running it dies. That's why I had the alternator checked. Any suggestions?

I left the dome light on over the weekend in my 1998 Jeep Cherokee limited, so I had to charge the battery, but now it wont start, seems like its not getting any gas, then I noticed the fuel gauge wasnt working, I checked fues and someone mentioned to me I may have to reset the fuel pump relay. I looked at the fuse box on the firewall and didnt see any switch to reset, does anyone have any suggestions to what the problem might be? Thank you.

Sounds like the starter itself has gone bad. If you can access it easily you can try to jump across the solenoid. Use a jumper wire from the hot lead to the exciter lead. If your not comfortable doing that DONT. Im pretty certain your starter is ... Chevrolet Cobalt

Charging problem Hi, We have a problem with the charging system on a 1999 Bora. The voltage slowly drops on the battery while the car is running. We took the alternator out and had it tested and it checks out fine. Checked all of the fuses and they're good. The wiring connections also seem fine. Where do we check next? The plug that goes on the alternator seems like it might be a good candidate if I knew where the other end goes...Thanks, Dave

My check gauges light, brake light & ABS light comes on shortly after driving it & then the battery voltage goes down & the truck dies.

It was acting as if it wasnt getting any gas. Could these two things be related? &

I checked the spark by pulling off a plug wire and sticking a screw driver in it and holding it 1/4 inch away from block, (good spark) Also have checked the timing to make sure it didnt jump time. Still in time. has 64 psi fuel, So thats good. Also tried some carb cleaner in the throttle body and still nothing. Just shut it off one day and will NOT start up.

A few more things to check:\015\012\015\0121. Compression test. You must have the right amount of fuel, the right amount of air and then compress it and supply a spark at the correct TIME for the engine to fire \015\012\015\012So you ma ... 1997 GMC Jimmy
