The check gauges light came on, battery light went all the way down, parts store checked & said that the battery and the alternater was ok. When it does this if I shut it down and re-crank it, gauge goes back to normal. The power steerig is also itermediately going out. There is also a skweeking uder the hood that comes & goes. I feel that the a/c beig turned off makes it fuction a little better. This all started at the same time. Thaks!!

I changed the battery and alternator ( three times, just to be sure) on my 1997 2.5L 4 cyl. manual transmission jeep wrangler, and it still wont charge the battery. when i start the car, the voltometer shows around 10 volts, then after a few minutes, the check gauges light comes on, and the voltometer drops all the way. i checked all the grounds, they seem fine, and there is no check engine light. I think it might be the PCM, but im not sure. is there any way to find out for sure? I really need

Battery is only chargeing intermittently I think. Both lights and battery warning dashboard warnings come on, and stay on when I start the car. I believe the lights icon is only to alert you to a failed light in the system,. Both of these go off if the voltge regulater decides to work and turns on the alternater to charge the system. Is the voltage regulater an integral part of the alternater???Do I need to replace both??? Is there some other problem>????Battery seems good...

I checked my transmission fluid level and according to the manual it says that when the engine is on the reading that it should be is higher on the stick, and the cold check is lower. However when I checked it hot, it was down all the way to the low check mark, and when it's cold it's way past the high check mark. Basically it's the opposite of what the manual says. Any ideas?

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. Is there a way to check this without taking out. Is it true if the vehicle is running and you disconnect the positive battery terminal, if the truck dies it is the alternator? If it keeps running it's not the alternator? Thanks

02 VW Passat V6 GLX My alternator won't keep my battery charged. I've had the battery checked (it's good), replaced the alternator twice (because the first replacement was bad,) and I still have the same problem. By the way, I had the people at AZ check the 2nd alternator just to make sure it wasn't bad out of the box either. The multimeter reads just over 12v and sometimes dips to 11.8. even when connected directly to the alternator. This has been true for 2 alternators. I'm at a

1990 Honda accord... thought it just needed a new battery so I jumped it and drove it to Les Schwab. On the way, the car died. Got it towed. Got a new battery but wouldn't start at all. The guys at L. Schwab checked it out and said its not getting a spark. They suggested it might be a bad ignition coil? I got the distributor cap off but it seems the rotor is in the way and I can't get to the ignition coil. Any help out there?
