The best way is to replace it with a new or rebuilt alternator....it should be fairly simple to do with basic tools...The first thing to do is to disconect the negative cable on your battery...then remove the fan belt...then disconect the wiring from the alternator, and lastly unbolt the alternator, and remove it. To instal the new one just do everything in reverse.

I have a 1984 Ford F 250 that I changed the alternater and battery in. Its not holding a charge at all and its back firing as well. any ideas what could be wrong?


the only three things i can think of is youve either got a bad alternator ( yes if its a remanufactured one its possible) your battery is wasted (replace), or the wiring isnt correct and the alternator isnt providing to the battery.

Battery light on


is the alternator charging? check a single tiny cable plug going to the alternator if it is not plugged right it could make the battery light flicker or simple turn it on. that little wire receives a signal from voltage regulator if alternator isnt charging correctly.

The battarey isnt charging, the windows arent working , the radio isnt working, the head lights arent working, the tail lights arnt working


Not much information but from what you describe I would guess the alternator and or voltage regulator (which might be inside the alternator) is faulty. Before doing anything else however make sure the connections on the battery are clean and corrosion free and that the battery has a full charge.

My check charging system light keeps coming on. I replaced the alternator about 2 years ago, and the battery about 10 months ago. Trying to figure out the possible problem before taking it to a shop.


Check the voltage ot the battery when the light is on. Ity should be approx 13.6 volts. If its around 12 volts, the alternator isnt charging. BUT just beacause it isnt charging, doesnt mean its bad, wirng has to be verified good, and connection.

My truck isnt charging the battery and a scan tool says P0452 whhat does this mean???? what do i need to do?


start your truck. take the positive side of the battery off and if the truck dies than replace you alternator. usually when your battery doesn't charge the alternator is bad and draining your battery instead of charging it like it is supposed to.
