1989 ford escort alternator problem

Alternator only pushes 75 amps output stock. need a higher output alternator for a decent price. any cars match up with the same bolt up? trying to run a 52x4 amp pioneer stereo. no sub just trying to run the stereo. low power to it, keeps cutting out. 100 amps should do but dont know an alternator that would work for this car. the only ones i find are up to 80 amps or they are $250+ for a high output alternator

Your alternator should power everything when engine is running. Battery is only for start up. Test voltage with a multimeter when engine is running , should be 14V or more . Any less indicates low alternator output.

Alternator is 110 amps or 130 amps


Higher amperage would cope with electrical demand easier so if they both fit and not any difference in price I would go for the higher one. The actual output voltage wise would be the same

Is the battery now flat again? Has the alternator drive belt broken? Has the alternator output been checked?

Note that if the new battery has been totally discharged by a lack of alternator charging then it's probably ruined and may need another replacement.

What is the stock Alternator AMP output for 2003


You have two options If the truck is stock then the 95 amp is fine but if your running aftermarket accessories then you would benifit from the 130 amp. All the alternator has to do is keep up with the load being applied.

it depends on what accessories you're running. If your vehicle has every electric option under the sun, you would want the higher output alternator. Same if you were running a high-output stereo or something like that. It all comes down to what you need.

What is battery price for accent Hyundai?


Price varies with warranty...longer it is the higher the price. Most batteries range from $75 to $150 but in a pinch you can get one cheaper form a scrapyard. Most cars have decent batteries in them and unless the electrical system in the scrapped car got shorted out in an accident or sustained damage to it's case, it should work out fine! (and, most are from $30 to $40!)

YOU HAVE THE WRONG ALTERNATOR.ANY TIME YOU BUY ANOTHER ALTERNATOR IT SHOULD BE THE SAME WIRING HOOK UP.TAKE OLD ALTERNATOR PARTS PLACE SO THEY CAN MATCH THEM.THEY PROBABLY GIVE YOU ALTERNATOR FOR GAS ENGINE BY MISTAKE.

The sound system is exceeding the capacity of the Alternator, it takes allot of power to run the subwoofers, they make higher output alternators for just this situation, u will need one with at least 130 Amps output.
