Hi,\015\012\015\012I don't know who told you to disconnect the battery while your engine is running but this is a big No-NO you will cause damage to the regulator in the alternator as it will max out the charging voltage to try and charge the b ... Chevrolet Camaro
I got a c230 showing low voltage and the battery light is on. I changed the battery and new Alternator. When starting the first time it runs a sec then dies but the starter keeps trying to turn it over to keep it alive. Then I try it again it starts runs for 3 secs then dies and back fires. The third time it will just turn over over and over. No start at all.

New alternator, but the battery keeps dying. voltage indicator came on. changed alternator, but nothing changed. plus, the timing seems to be of but i cant adjust it because the PCU does that and controls the recharging of the battery, is it the pcu?

My 1999 Mitsubishi Diamante keeps dying...i have a brand new battery and today all of the sudden my battery light came on and then the brake light and it started to lose power and died. I had someone change out the battery with a fully charged one and got somewhere else and it died again. Could it be the alternator?

I have a 1998 Ford WIndstar. It died on us the other day. we put a refurbished alternator in it, changed the clamps that attach to the top of the battery, when the battery is in OUR van and is charged, it will hold the charge running for 1-2 minutes, then the radio goes off, the RPM goes to 0 and then it dings a couple times, then it dies. However, when the battery was in my friends truck it ran it just fine. so its not the battery. we are pretty much stumped. anyone have any ideas? I would grea

My car keeps dying and won't restart until I charge the battery again. Then, when I drive during the day there are no problems. When I drive at night using the headlights it will die within a short period of time. I have changed the alternator and had the battery checked and still no solution! Is this a common problem for this car? How do I fix? Will it be inexpensive?
First with the car not running check the batt voltage should be 12.5 or higher. You need a voltmeter (very cheap at Harbor Freight Tools store) second start car and check voltage at the batt connection on the alternator. it should be 14.5 or higher. ... 2000 Ford Focus

Hi i am having trouble 93 Ford Taurus. The battery died on me , so i checked alternator and it was fried.I changed it and put battery back on. It died again.

We believe it is grounding somewhere but cant figure it out. Any suggestions or alternative solutions would be great. Battery, starter, fuses, and alternator all good

Battery keeps going dead after a few days. Replaced battery, replaced alternator. Red battery light stays on in dash at night after vehicle is shut off and locked. Next morning, battery is dead. After replacing battery and alternator, Tahoe doesn't want to idle smoothly or at proper rpm range. Idle keeps shifting up & down, and when ever you stop at a red light, engine dies if you don't keep your foot on accelerator.Also, keeps blowing fuse for door locks.
Take out the fuse for the door locks. Then see if the battery still goes dead. If it does not go dead, then you know the electrical circuit that has the short. You could just leave the fuse out, not have power door locks but at least the battery woul ... 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe

My 1984 ford f250 keeps loosing a charge. I recharge battery and drive the truck. When I park it the battery goes low and will not crank the engine. I checked all but the alternator.

If it keeps running it's not the alternator? Thanks
