Had replace water pump know alternator want change


Start the engine and measure the voltage at the battery terminals. It should be in the mid 13 volt to the mid 14 volt range. If not charging go back over your work from changing the water pump. Did you route the serpentine belt correctly? Is the belt tight? Are any electrical connections you may have disturbed clean and tight?
