The gauge inside is telling you how many volts your alternator is putting out, not yoru battery. Go have your alternator tested to see if it is putting out 14 volts or more...........if not, you are drawing more current out of the battery then what the alternator is replacing and you are going to end up with another dead battery. They can test alternators at Autozone for free or you can go get a multi meter and test it yourself. Have the alternator checked.

Alternator is defective and is not keeping the battery charged. Or, you have a light or relay that is on pulling power from the battery. Start the engine and check the voltage at the battery with a digital volt meter. You should have 13.5 to 15.5 volts if the alternator is good.

Problem getting batter out of 1988 Chevy Celebrity?

I am assuming you are asking about getting the battery out of your 1988 Chevy Celebrity. To get the battery out: 1. Loosen the strut from the radiator support bracket and swing it aside. You may have to loosen the single bolt at the inner fender well to move the strut. 2. Wearing gloves to protect your skin from battery acid remove the ground cable. 3. Remove the positive cable. 4. Loosen and remove the holding clamp at the bottom of the battery. 5. Lift the battery out of the battery tray. Reverse the steps to put the battery back in.

Battery light stays on in your Chevy silverado 2005?

test the voltage on the battery first, then on the alternator. If its good then it could just be the diode in the alternator. I would suggest you replace it becuase eventually your alternator will die and the battery will not get charged leaving you stranded somewhere. It is possible to just be a battery but you wont know unless you have the battery tested. check the voltage on the battery and the alternator before you do anything else.
