2001 pontiac grand am v6 battery keeps dying and my altenator is good
I put a new/used engine in my car and now
my battery light is on and battery keeps
dying. Ive had my altenator tested and it
comes back perfect. What could be the
Make sure wires to Alternator are good ,maybe a pinch harness or blown fuse.!
Ive checked the fuses and there all good. Wen i disconnect pos batt cable my car does die
The Alternator is not charging your battery , you have a pinch wire most likely or faullty connection at battery or Alternator
The alternator may be putting out the voltage but how about amps? Check your ground connections as well. Since you replaced the engine make sure all the ground straps/wires are hooked up. You really don't want to test the alternator by disconnecting the positive (+) battery cable. That's an old old old time charging system test which can create a power surge that will fry the electronics in a more modern car. HTH. - Jim
