Yes it is the wire that comes from the alternator/battery lite in the dash.

Fully charged battery discharged after trip. Alternator output 14.4 volts, AC out 13.8 volts, Recharged from AC for trip home,dead again at home.


Did you check voltage at battery while running? Or at alternator. Watch voltage at battery at idle, see if there is a drop over a period of time. Should be 13.5-14 volts. It may be as easy as replacing the battery, not just recharging it. Also check terminals to make sure voltage is making it back to the battery.

Alternator output 11.9vdc to 12.4vdc. Replaced with new alternator, same output as old. Car will not stay running due to battery running car. Any ideas?


Is there battery voltage at the bigger gage wire on the back of the alternator ? The other wire in the connector is a control feed from the PCM - engine computer , It is marked L ,if you hook a test light to positive battery terminal an touch the other point end to the L terminal an it starts to charge your alternator is not being turned on by the PCM ! Could have open circuit or bad PCM !

Alternator is good...no output towards battery...no voltage coming out of alternator battery light on...won't charge


Is the circuit open between the alternator and the battery ?
Have you had the alternator tested while on the car ?
The small wire coming from the warning light "turns on" the alternator, but it needs battery voltage on the large wire and a good ground to work.

New battery , wires and plugs and still have trouble starting in the mornings, get a jump and starts. After running vehicle for awhile I turn it off and try starting it it will start.


check alternator output with engine running.you should have 13.5 - 14.5 volts if not alternator not charging.check alternator wiring to battery feed to alternator.check alternator voltage regulator wiring check alternator fuse make drive belt not slipping.and you have the correct cold cranking amp battery.bad old worn out battery cables will cause charging problems.because old battery cables put high resistance on the charging circuit.if battery cables old as vechicle replace them.

I would first try replacing the belt. These normally last about 5 to 7 years. It may be somewhat glazed, allowing it to slip under load. If that does not work, you might need to replace the tensioner pulley.

There are usually only 3 wires to an alternator.
The heavy red power output, a light field input, and the chassis ground.

There are about 20 different types of Geo Metro alternators, so I can't be sure, but I doubt your extra wire are for the alternator. Often a wiring harness will have all the possible wires, whether they are needed or not, such as AC, etc. Look at one in a used car lot or salvage yard.

Can you give me more details on the RV, such as chassis make ( Ford I'm guessing) year, and engine, and what make and model of the RV itself. The reason I ask for RV make as well is because some manufacturers of RV's use different battery isolators, set-ups etc., in their units.

Alternator good,no output battery volts 11.5


How do you know the alternator is good? If it has no output......it's bad. Are you checking alternator voltage output at battery? You want to check voltage it at the alternator if you can acces it.....bad wires could be to blame. Check all wires from aternator, to starter, to battery. If they look anything but new, I would replace all. Have Autozone or Advanced auto do a test on the battery, they will tell you if it meets CCA (cold cranking amps) set by the Ford, both under a load and not under load.
