Why won't my alternator not get power?

Asked by Apr 10, 2017 at 04:25 PM about the 2006 Chevrolet Malibu LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2006 Malibu MAXX. My car wouldn't start, got new battery still,
wouldn't start, installed new starter, fixed a wire that was burnt. Car starts but
drains the battery because the alternator isn't getting power. What's going
on?

My car starts but the battery runs down seeing the alternator has no power going to it.
