How long did the 2nd alt. last before it died? The voltage regulator is, I believe, attached to the alternator. Have u had the voltage regulator checked?

SOURCE: Instrument panel went dead

Checked Every fuse in the fuse box (no small task).This includes #4 - Power point Instrument Panel, #14 - Day time running lamps (auto lamps doesn't work nor does auto lock), #27 - ignition switch run feed, #35 - Instrument Cluster, #41 - Instrument Cluster, #42 - Delayed Accessory, #45 - Ignition switch run/start feed, #102 - Door locks body security module, #103 - Ignition switch, #110 - Ignition switch, & #116 - Ignition switch. But I also check all other ones as well, they all register OK. AC panel & radio work. Turn signals work. Mileage does not work, trip computer does. So, basically, everything works except auto head-lights, auto locks, and the dash cluster (no MPH, RPM, mileage display, Fuel, Temp, Tran Temp, and Oil Pressure).

SOURCE: alternater voltage regulator is where??

The regulator is built into these models. The alternator must be changed as a whole.

SOURCE: volt gauge dropped below 8 volts in idle, picked

13 volts is fine you may need to set the idle up a little bit and make sure the belt is tight the idle ajuster is on the throtle possion sencer you will see a little screw turn it in a little at a time

Alternator is not charging the battery the checkengine light is on i have had my alternator change for the 3rd time still the problem is not solve ihad the alternator check there is no flow of current...


Don't know what year/make/model you have, but I will put this personal experience of my own out there for you. I had a Chevy Sprint with a three cylinder engine. I had the same problem as you described. I checked and found that there was a broken alternator bracket which was allowing the alternator to shake/vibrate while the engine was running. Couldn't see the shake just by looking, but it was enough to cause the problem you are having. I replaced the broken/cracked bracket and it solved the problem. Hope this helps you as well.

I have a 1990 Volvo 240 recently the car started to die at random times while driving. When it dies all the dash lights come on can't start it for a bit afterwards. I replaced the battery and it seemed...


  • This is classic of your alternator going bad. Sometimes, when it first begins to go bad it will function on and off. Soon it just stops charging the battery all together. The battery has one function and that is to start the car. Then the alternator is ran by the belt and charges the battery and in effect runs the car. The reason for the lights coming on is the power fail in the car.
  • Buying a new battery worked for a short time because the fresh battery ran the car but with no alternator to charge the battery the car soon died again.
  • The fix is to replace the alternator. Do it soon or even that new battery will go bad from being drained so much.

regards, Tony

The engine will start and run but will not charge battery and will shut off when using any electrical power such as turn signal, putting in gear, brakes, headlights etc even with a fully charged battery....


first thing i would check is the alternator it should read 13.4 to 14.6 volts while running. if the alternator isnt charging than the vehicles computer is not getting the required voltage to run all accesories and engine parameters. i hope this helps

1990 240 dl Volvo wagon, have to put fully charged battery, then when the battery is discharges the car dies, alternator ? Voltage regulator ?


sounds as though you have a bad alternator or a loose alternator belt and the battery is not being charged. while the car is running - check the voltage from the alternator and make sure it is about 13.4 volts DC.

Battery Not Charging on 1990 Ford Aerostar


I would say to change the alternator again even if it's new from the parts store it really is a rebuilt one try a different one . If the car is dieing while it is driving more than likely the alternator especially if things like headlights , radio ,ect.. cut off first.
