When you say 'not charging', what are the symptoms? Charge warning light on all the time??, car won't start?? Have you measured the voltage across the battery with the engine on/off?

Question Not Charging

Battery voltage is good after charging it with a batter charger. The alternator is charging but it is not putting the charge to the battery.
And when I hook the battery up the park lights come on and the headlight switch starts to make a weird noise.

Thanks Richard

Question now charging

Found two blown fuse in the black box on the right fender apron in front of the battery. They were 125a and a 50 amp fuse. Now it is charging buttttttt it want change out of second gear it sat for five month before I got it. So what could this be going on with the transmission?????? And the PSE pump is toast that what was keeping the park light on.
