Sounds to Me Like You may have a voltage regulater problum. GM cars have inturnal Regultors. Fords have exturnal reglaters.try checking the reglater. Good Luck Darwin B. Fuse-fuselink-ground or U don't have 12 volts from the ignition switch 2 the alternator BUT-(IF) it does have an external regulator-- make SURE u use a MOTOR CRAFT regulator-after market regs usally don't last!!& make sure U have 12 volts from the ALTERNATOT 2 the STARTER The 96 contour, and I think the '95-'98 as well, has a 'maxifuse' hidden underneath the air-intake box covering the air-intake manifold (not the filter box!). You will find (up near the firewall on the belt side of the engine) a black plastic box about an inch wide and roughly 3 inches long. It is not listed in the repair manuals, and is usually the reason no power is being produced by the alternator. We replaced 3 alternators before finding this thing.
i have changed the alternator and voltage regulator and it still wont charge ; 84 Plymouth reliant
You may have a weak or dead battery.
Inside the alternator
its the baterry
If the alternator is good then the battery is bad.
As long as the ignition switch is off, it will not damage the alternator.
Still Won't Charge After Installing a New AlternatorUsually this is an indication that the wiring system is "screwed up." Either it was that way before, leading to the need to replace the alternator, OR whoever changed the alternator screwed the wiring up during the replacement process.You need a Professional to properly troubleshoot the system and make proper repairs.
It depends on which diode, but sometimes it can.
Try changing the battery.
check the alternator, ignition coil. or even see what the charge at the battery is.
check your fuses
Check your charge fuse (7.5 A)at relay block no. 2. (passenger side engine compartment.)
check the fuses!
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.
I changed your battery?? I don't think so. I think your alternator is your problem!
Have the battery checked out. It may have a dead cell and not holding a charge,
i cannot sign in forgot usersname
yes it can. i had a 2004 ford mustang that kept reading that the camshaft position sensor was the cause. Changed the cps and still same code. changed alternator and the code cleared itself!
Yes. an alternator can be good but you can still have charging problems if:- 1.Battery is no good. 2.Fan belt slack or worn. 3.Poor or broken wiring connections at alternator. 4.Loose or dirty battery conections. 5.poor or broken wiring between alternator and battery. 6.Alternator rating not large enough for application.
Sounds like alternator is going bad even though it still may still hold a charge

You probably have a bad battery. You probably have a bad battery.
So, what you're saying is that your car isn't charging the battery since you changed the starter... is that right. If so, my guess is that you accidently left off or possibly even burned out the fusible link between the battery cable and the alternator. If this is the case, that's why it won't charge. So, make sure yoiu've still got a connection between the wire between your battery cable at the starter and the alternator.
