Can a bad starter keep your alternator and battery from charging?

YesFirst if the starter is bad the car will not start, if it will not start it can not charge the battery.If the starter will not work it can mean there is an electrical problem that will also prevent the alternator from charging the batteryThe starter itself CAN NOT CAUSE CHARGING PROBLEMS!The extra load on the battery can ruin the battery and that can ruin the alternator. But before that NO.

The battery isn't getting a charge while driving and you got a new altenater new battery and you checked the grounds Its got you stumped?

Did you have the new alternator tested before you installed it? I have already purchased aftermarket parts from places like Autozone and installed them and have found they are defective. I installed a starter only to find out the starter was bad. I took it back to Autozone, they gave me another one, I asked to have it tested and IT was defective. I had to go to another store to get one that worked. freak of nature? Maybe ...but it does and has happened. Make sure the belt on the alternator isn't slipping.
