Well, actually, the batteries don't do the charging, the alternator does. I can probably help you but first I'll need some information:

  • Were the batteries charged and load-tested before the new alternator was installed?
  • Was the charging system checked for volts and amps to determine what was causing the problem?
  • Are you thinking of repairing this issue yourself? If yes, do you have a volt and amp meter capable of reading up to 120 amps?
