Did you replace it with the correct battery? Are you sure the alternator is correct for your car? Are you leaving anything running like interior or exterior lights? Maybe you have a short somewhere in your wiring harness. The "More Questions" response is totally off base as none of those things are causing the problem. The problem was there before the battery and alternator replacement, and it's still there. A short circuit would either blow a fuse, or burn up a fusible link, neither of which have been reported by the questioner. This case is a good example of what not to do in trying to fix any problem. Obviously you spent good money to replace parts which were NOT defective. This is what I call the "shotgun" repair method. The proper way to correct any problem is to properly trouble shoot and DIAGNOSE the CAUSE of the problem, thereby allowing for the quickest, most efficient, and least expensive repair or replacement of the guilty component. There are other possible causes for the failure issue described in your question. Those I can recall include: 1. Defective battery cables, clamps, or connector terminals at the either end of the cables. 2. Corroded interface surfaces at any connections. 3. A defective starter solenoid. 4. Even a defective starter, including an accumulation of starter brush "dust" between the brushes and the commutator contacts. I suggest that you take your vehicle to a QUALIFIED auto mechanic, or auto electrical technician, who will be able to identify the specific cause of the problem, and most economically accomplish only the necessary repair or replacement. j3h.
Have you had the alternator tested? Often a bad internal diode can drain the alternator overnight.
If every thing is working leave it alone Mine stuck in defrost battery died and messed up the computer. Disconnect battery for 5 or more min. If you have this problem
Every 100,000 miles.
Sounds like your alternator and battery need to be replaced soon.

Yes, the 1997 Chrsler Sebring JXi 2.5L has a timing belt which should be checked every time the vehicle is serviced to see if is to be replaced. Replace it and the water pump every 100,000 miles.
If alternator and battery test fine- then you may have a bad fusable link not allowing the alternator to charge the battery
Alternator, every post i have ever read all points to the alternator
Several potential reasons that your battery is not charging. It could be that your battery is too old and must be replaced. Alternatively, the electrolyte in your battery is low and that you have damaged your plates by not replacing the lost fluid with distilled water. Thus, you may have to replace your battery. Or, as you suggest, it could be a defective alternator (actually voltage regulator in the alternator). However, first you should check the belt your alternator runs off. If may be loose, causing the alternator not to charge the battery. Old belts develop multiple microcracks that will loosen the belt tension. Have you replaced your alternator belt since you purchased the vehicle (about every 50,000 miles)? If your belt is tight, it could be that your alternator is bad. Brake light could be related to alternator issue, or you have a separate problem with the brake fluid sensor. Remember to check your brake fluid at least monthly. Hope this helps.
No, the 1996 Chrysler Sebring V-6 is an interference engine. The cam belt must be replaced every 60,000 miles.
Dead battery, Alternator not charging, Ignition off draw draining battery,.............
bad electrical connection.some where.
Hi That is telling you that the alternator is not charging the battery, and unless you get it seen to very soon (and I mean tomorrow) you will be sitting somewhere with a dead flat battery calling AAA for a ride home. Could be a bad alternator or it could be that the battery is clapped out. A battery needs to be replaced every 3-4 years coz they take such a beating, especially if you live anywhere there's a winter. They don't have an unlimited life span and they are a lot cheaper than an alternator. Auto Zone or Pep Boys will test your battery for free Phil
if it stalls when you remove positive battery terminal then your alternator is bad Yes, it could be the alternator, but I have an 89 Celebrity and when I first got it we had the same problem and would die out every few minutes and need a boost. We changed the alternator, did not help. We bought a Duralast Gold battery from Auto Zone which helped a little but did not fix the problem. We then took the car to an alternator repair shop called Gabby's in Knoxville TN and they replaced a large fuse under the dashboard and I never had the problem again. Cost me $5.00.
Even though the alternator has been changed, take the car to a parts store and ask them to check the output. Some alternators are rebuilt and every once in a while, one of them is bad. Also, check the wiring on the alternator and make sure there is no corrosion on the battery cables. If none of those things help, you may have to take the alternator apart and replace the voltage regulator. One other thing, the alternator relay may be shot.
Alternator is not charging, or if it is the charge is not getting to the battery
check to see if the alternator is working properly or maybe an alternator wire came loose with the new battery installation.
The battery is only a storage device. The alternator replaces the electrical energy that the battery uses every time you start the engine and every time you turn on an electrical device in the car. If the alternator isn't working or isn't working properly, the battery will eventually discharge. Answer if the alternator is in fact working but you have let the battery run empty, simply getting a jump start might not allow the battery to charge sufficiently once you start driving again. you have to charge the battery up a sufficient amount or the battery will just run out again.
Batteries should be replaced about every 3 to 5 years, some can even last seven. However, it is obvious that if the battery dies (with no ability to "jump"), is corroted, or gets a dead cell in it then it should be replaced.
Typically when you need to jump start your car every time in order to start it, there is a problem with the battery. It could be that the alternator is not working and is not charging the battery, or it could be that the battery is not holding a charge.
Your battery is not charging. It is either due to a faulty battery or a faulty alternator. Get it changed.
Every time you disconnect a battery cable you have to reprogram the radio stations ( if that's what you are asking )
Battery light usually means alternator not charging. Most common solutions would be be a bad alternator, bad connection, or loose alternator belt.
