Hello, my alt went out, got a new one, tested it, it is good, new battery, replaced some fuses, the alt still will not charge the battery???????? -
Answer 1
The alternator needs a few things to be able to charge the battery. It needs to have good connections to the positive and negative side of the battery, and it needs a voltage signal from the ignition switch.
