Indirectly. The positive cable on the battery is hooked to the starter. The other wire on the starter post goes up to the alternator.
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.
There is not a fusible link between the alternator and starter. There is a regulator on the alternator. The starter is directly connected to the battery, as is the alternator.
Is it charging, if not have you checked wiring to alternator.
Alternator on a car is for re cahrging the battery. So you can have a starter motor without a alternator but you wont get far down the road when the battery runs out of power and the car will die.
No, your battery supplies power to the starter. However if your alternator is defective then it will not supply power to the battery and the battery will soon be depleted.
alternator and starter
Check the battery cables or starter.
the positive wire that recharges the battery after being drained from the starter
The alternator produces power to charge the battery. The battery powers the starter to turn the engine over.
I would check the power right at the starter. Either the solenoid on the starter is defective or the connections/ battery are poor.
You have an open connection from the large alternator output post to the starter main battery post or fuses blown or circuits open feeding the alternator control wiring.
Test the battery with a digital voltmeter. You should get a reading of 12.6 V if the battery is fully charged. If the battery is fully charged then you know the alternator is functioning properly and your problem is more than likely a defective starter.
If the starter motor is not turning the engine over correctly, this might be because the vehicle battery is flat. If the battery is not charged, this may be because the alternator is not charging correctly. The recommendation here is to pop along to a local garage or autelectrician asking them to check the charge of the battery, the alternator output, and the starter motor operation if necessary.
Well not the starter. The starter is used to start spinning the engine and draws its power from the battery. The alternator uses the engines belt to recharge the battery and to power the cars electronics as well as lights. When you shut the engine off, the power then draws from the battery.
I had a similar problem turns out the Alternator was bad.
its either the alternator the battery is bad or a loose or bad wire on the starter
check the battery or battery cables or the alternator or starter
1. The battery could be dead. 2. The starter could be stuffed. 3. The alternator Could be stuffed. Put another battery in see what happens.
if your starter & alternator are good check your starter relay their inexpensive on ebay. i got one for $17. it's located under the hood left side mounted outside the wheelwell
check your alternator or make sure the starter is on correctly
maybe ignitoin or ignition switch
