Why is the car battery charging at 14 volts running and 13.5 not running?

your alternator charges the battery while the car is running. The alternator actually puts out a higher voltage than 14 volts while it is running, but it is reduced by a voltage regulator (most of which are already built into the alternator housing), to prevent damage and premature death of the vehicles battery. While your car is not running, the alternator is not charging the battery, and the 13.5 volt reading you get is just the measurement of the voltage the battery is holding at that given point.

Reason a battery icon comes on a 1999 Plymouth breeze?

It could be the alternator going bad or has already gone bad or the battery could have a bad cell in it keeping it from charging. The battery cable ends may not have good connection for it to charge correctly. The hot wire to the alternator probably needs to be changed because if that wire is bad it too would keep it from charging. Last the plug that plugs in the side of the alternator (round w/ green wire and green and yellow wire) it too would keep it from charging. If it is not none of which I said that you might want to consider in a short in your wiring harness if its a short it will take time to locate it.

How do you know you need an alternator or a battery?

It's easy to distinguish if your car has a damage alternator or battery. The first thing you do is to start your car using your old battery then, once the engine is running then remove the cable from your battery, if the car still running that means the alternator is still charging but is it enough? so you have to measure the current that is being generated by the alternator using a multi tester. If the reading from the tester can reach 13 to 14 volts then your alternator is still good. If not then the carbon brush of the alternator might need to be replace or the IC. If your car battery is already leaking then it possible that the plates are already damage, or if you have tried to charge your battery but the power is easily drained then it needs to be replace. i hope this can help ......... deep

How do you repair a high pitched squeal on a 1997 blazer sound almost like locusts I already replaced tensioner ac compressor and actual serp belt?

If you have replaced all this it may not be a belt. It may be your alternator itself. These have bearings inside them and they do wear out. The only way to check is to remove the belt and spin the alternator to see if that is what is noisy. It may wobble if the bearings are bad. It should turn smoothly if not.

How do you charge a PlayStation 3 controller?

Charging a PlayStation 3 controller is a lot simpler than you might think it is. With a PlayStation 3 comes a cord that plugs a controller into the system. Hook it up and your controller is already charging. If it is not, one of three things is happening: 1) The cord is broken or faulty. 2) The controller is broken or faulty, or the battery needs to be replaced. 3) The system is turned off. If you address all these problems and the controller is still not charging, contact Sony.
