A lot of new vehicles have a master system fuse under the hood that might be blown.
I've found that the wire from the alternator to the positive terminal (which runs the actual charge to your battery positive terminal) is sometimes bad. You can bypass it by adding a wire at the small post at the back of the alternator then running it to the positive battery cable (attach it any which way). The original wire is the small one which runs attached alongside the battery cable. Bypassing it will let you see if it is bad or not. I actually have left the new wire on this way and never stalled or had starting problems since. Try it even though your battery is fully charged.
the work of an alternator is to charge up the battery while the vehicle is in motion
Do you mean charge by the vehicle running....or do you mean take a charge from a Bench charger? if its in the vehicle it could mean that either the battery/battery connection/cables, a faulty ground, or the alternator is defective. If its on a bench charger then the battery has a dead cell or is defective and needs replacing.
You cannot charge a battery without a battery charger or having it charged by the alternator in your vehicle while it is running.
That is the purpose of an alternator. The keep the battery charged and to run all the electrics on the vehicle. However it is never a good idea to allow the alternator to charge a dead battery. This will put a strain on the alternator and may damage it.
Battery may have a dead cell and need replacing.
The answer is no . The battery starts you vehicle , the alternator charges the battery so if your alternator is bad your battery is not receiving a charge which will cause a "no start" condition.
If the battery was charged when you installed it, you do not have to drive the car at all. If not you should charge the battery and not use the cars alternator to charge it.
to keep your battery charge and help provide your vehicle electricity
If you are 100% sure the battery and alternator are good and the battery is loosing it's charge then something is on pulling power from the battery. Can be any light or any relay on the vehicle.
The alternator generates power to run the car and charge the battery. An alternator in a vehicle generates Alternate Current (AC) instead of Direct Current (DC) electricity to power the vehicle.
New batteries almost always come fully charged. If it was not then charge it with a battery charger and do not use your vehicle alternator to charge a dead battery. You may do harm to the alternator which is not built to charge a dead battery but is instead built to keep a good battery fully charged.
It varies depending on how much other electronics you are using on the vehicle at the time. Could take hours. I do not recommend you charge any dead battery with the alternator if you can avoid it. it puts too much of a strain on the alternator and may damage it. Charge a dead battery with a battery charger.
Because your alternator starts to generate more power as you accelerate, as opposed to an engine at low speed or idle. The car reads this extra voltage from the alternator, which is trying to charge the battery, and tells the light to go off. This is not normal on a vehicle with an alternator. You need to have the alternator checked as it more than likely needs replacing.
The alternator charges the car battery.
The battery has a dead cell or short and needs replacing.
Usually it means that the alternator isn't charging the battery. Batteries store electricity and the alternator uses energy from the engine to produce electrical energy for all of the devices in the vehicle and to recharge the battery. If the alternator isn't working the battery will eventually loose it's charge and you will not be able to start the vehicle.
A battery charges nothing it accepts a charge from the alternator.
alternator probably needs replacing not charging battery or bat is dead and not taking charge
if its a new battery then you need to replace your alternator. It basically recharges your battery while the vehicle is running.
Yes it can...you may have a bad cell in the battery.. even with a bad cell the battery may have enough charge to start the vehicle but it then puts the alternator under a heavy load as it tries to charge the battery...Have them both tested.... There is also the possibility that the bearings in the alternator may be worn which could cause excessive heating....
Charge the battery.
older cars had a generator ,not an alternator, but you can always use a battery charger to charge a battery
check your fuses if they are good the voltage regulator is in the pcm eng computer
Connect a battery charger to the battery and let it fully charge. Do not charge it with the cars alternator. If it will not accept a charge the battery needs replacing. Connect positive (+) red cable to positive post and black negative (-) cable to negative post. Trickle charge the battery do not fast charge it as the charge won't take. Sure it will start the car a few times but a good charge to a battery is one that is done slowly
Charge it, replace it,test the alternator,Charge it, replace it,test the alternator,
