Your battery does not supply electrical power to the vehicle it simply stores it. The alternator is what recharges (replenishes) the power used during cranking. You need to have your charging system checked to verify the alternator is working and at the same time you need to have the battery diagnosed as draining your battery completely repeatedly can cause premature failure.

I Changed battery and alternator on my truck. My truck ran great for a day and now the battery is dead. what would make a new battery drain when the alternator is new along with the battery?

Preexisting Condition?I suspect that the same thing that caused the "old" battery drain, and/or failure to charge is causing the battery to be discharged after your replacement of the battery and alternator.Without doing a "hands on" troubleshooting of the charging circuit, and all the circuits of your vehicle, no one can tell you the exact defect or cause. There could be one or more of many causes.The proper "fix" for this problem is for someone who KNOWS what he/she is doing [a qualified Electronic or Electrical Technician to do a complete troubleshoot of the vehicle's electrical systems.During that analysis, the defect should be identified and properly repaired. There are many possible causes that make this analysis is an absolute necessity.

Battery symbol light 1997 Chevy truck dash?

The battery symbol light indicates that, for whatever reason, the electrical system in the vehicle is not being supplied with the proper voltage.

Since the battery is the easiest to remove and replace and is most prone to failure it is recommended that you have the battery checked. This can be done, usually for free, at any auto-parts store.

Does an alternator make noise before it breaks?

If it is a "physical" failure, it'll likely be the bearings that give out - and most times, most bearings will start making a groaning or humming type sound. If the failure is electrical in nature, it is common for there to be no sounds or symptoms like that to give you fair warning. Low voltage resulting is things like starting problems, battery not charging, dimming lights, will be common symptoms of a failed alternator.

What are common causes of premature battery failure on a Ford Windstar?

A bad battery - one of the 'cells' can fail and cause there to be virtually no reserver: need a jump after leaving lights on for just a very short time.A bad alternator!

Why wont my alternator charge on my 1994 Chevy lumina apv with 3800 liter engine?

Have you measured the voltage across the battery with the engine running? It should measure approximately 14v. If not you want to replace your alternator/voltage regulator. Check your shop manual to see if you can open the alternator and replace the brushes. After so many miles the brushes wear down, this is the most frequent cause of alternator failure. there is a fusable link in the line between the battery and the alternator i replaced the battery and alt. but still wouldn't charge track the wire
