MY CHECK CHARGE SYSTEM LIGHT AND LITTLE BATTERY LIGHT KEEPS GOING OFF. I'VE HAD THE WIRING HARNESS TO THE ALTERNATOR REPLACED, THE VOLTAGE REGULATOR REPLACED AND TODAY A NEW BATTERY PUT IN. NOTHING IS...


The first question for you is, What is the charging output for the altenator at idle?? If less than 12.3 volts, replace altenator. Typically, the altenator gets tested at 2500-3000 rpm on a bench tester. Your problem may be in the low rpm output range.

1st, 2nd gear and reverse will not engage on my 4 speed manual transmission. what is the problem and how should i go about getting it fixed?


Sounds like the transmission is worn out. It could be rebuilt or call around to the junk yards and see if any has a good clean used trans.If you get a junk yard one change the fluid before you drive the truck.

Battery and brake indicator light stays on after start


When the lights are on check the battery voltage. Should be 13.0 to 14.5. If you unplug the connector on the alternator when the lights are on, do they go off?

Pulled into 4 wheel drive lost all electrical power


Well it turned out to be something simple. It was caused by a bad grounding battery cable.

Low volts light stays on


new altenator or junkyard one.if new return it, if junkyard just ignore light as its odds on they will not change it .the red light is caused by the difference in the voltage between input and output voltages .Quick test --start engine and run at 1500rpm disconnect battery and turn everything electrical on and if engine stops then change altenator if it stays running then altenator is OK

1989 Toyota pickup with short/dead battery


The brake light combined with the battery light tells me that your alternator is not sufficiently charging the battery. These 2 lights illuminate in tandem when the voltage regulator is not seeing over 12.5 volts. You are going to probably have to replace the alternator, or get it checked & overhauled at an alternator shop.
