re check the two wire connector to alternatorDid you check the Battery connections? Typically, you want to replace the battery with a new one when you replace the alternator.

Are you getting any messages in your message center? Stuff like "check Charging System"?

What voltage is the battery sitting at with the motor running and the lights on?

did you consider the alternator might be bad? Yes, I know, new alternator, but that doesn't mean it's always 100% good.

Alternator is not charging. Have it tested and/or replaced.

The battery light coming on in your Town and Country minivan means that the alternator needs to be replaced. The alternator charges the battery and if it goes bad it will not charge the battery.

Battery light usually means alternator not charging. Most common solutions would be be a bad alternator, bad connection, or loose alt belt.

It could be an alternator. Check with a mechanic if that is the issue.

A light is on or a relay is stuck pulling power from the battery.

The battery light can come on due to a low charging voltage. Check the alternator for full output, and make sure that the alternator belt is not slipping.

94 Buick Lesabre replaced battery and alternator and the alternator is not charging the battery. Battery light is on and off. Is this fusable link. If so where is it located

That light doesn't mean that your battery needs to be replaced. It means that your battery is not being charged while the car is running. Have your alternator tested.

If the light remains on then the system still isn't charging as it should. Check the plug on the alternator and also that the wires to the alt have a good connection.

Loose alternator drive belt or loose or corroded battery cables. The battery itself may also be bad.

User Avatar

It means something is wrong with your charging system. Can be a loose of corroded battery cable, defective alternator or a battery with a dead short.

User Avatar

check the alternator fuse on the main cable that goes from the alternator to the battery. sometimes the alternator shorts out this fuse. it's usually mounted on the right side of the firewall in a plastic cover over .

User Avatar

yes if one of the wires was getting an earth from the alternator cover or rubbing off the engine the battery light is really an alternator light warning you that the alternator is not charging the battery

Bad Alternator or the Battery possibly is losing voltage. I replaced the alternator and serpentine belt before thinking it was the battery. The battery was only 16 months old. But it turned out to be the bad source.
