Inside the alternator
Maybe the batter is dead or you got another bad alternator.
Try changing the battery.
Charge and load test battery- it may be not able to take a charge and need to be replaced You may a have blown fuseable link preventing alternator from charging battery
Voltage regulator or loose wire.
You can have the alternator tested free of charge at just about any major auto parts store. By the way, a bad alternator will not "discharge" a battery - the alternator's function is to provide the charge to the battery. If the alternator is faulty, then it is not providing the charge necessary to keep other components from discharging the battery. I had the alternator tested and it was charging. If the alternator has a bad diode, it will discharge the battery. I replaced the alternator and everything is fine.
Your battery will not keep charge most likely because of your alternator is shot or u have a blown fuse or maybe even a broken or fused wire somewhere. In some cases it may be because your battery is old and it wont keep a full or steady charge. -Thanks
Some new alternators will not charge unless the battery has a full charge already.
Loose or corroded connections or the battery has a dead cell and will not accept a charge and must be replaced.
Have the battery checked out. It may have a dead cell and not holding a charge,
Charge it, replace it,test the alternator,Charge it, replace it,test the alternator,
Any alternator will charge at idle.
I have a 2.0 1995 Mercury mystique the battery charge light was on no output on old alternator. Replaced alternator No output from new alternator "charge light out" (wiggle test wires& re-check wires) at alternator *still no output* is there a fuse that could be the problem or just another bad alternator... I would check the alternator plug before getting another alternator, it may be bad. And is a lot cheaper to replace.
defective voltage regulator
You probably have a bad battery. You probably have a bad battery.
you can take out the battrey and turn it on then will turn it off again in the press yes
i think it is a charge but you may know that maby a battrey if its small or a genarator if its big
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.
I would assume the battery is completely dead and needs to be replaced, or you jumped it wrong.or its the alternator i think
does the kia have a remote voltage regulator
Take the battery to your local auto parts store. They have equipment to test the battery at no charge.
alternator is bad
Generally, no. If you ran the car after the alternator died (which runs down the battery), you may need to trickle-charge the battery for a half-hour or so to bring it back up to a full charge, but most of the time the battery will not need to be replaced.
sounds like your gauge is broken or there is a short in wiring
