Alternator charging system wiring diagram.


Sounds like new alternator has a bad diode in it and needs to be replaced. Even if it is new it can still be bad. Have it checked at your local AutoZone or Advance auto for free.

Why does,nt alternator charge the battery?


You need to check the small connector that plugs into the back of the alternator. One of the pins will have a power supply when the ignition is in the on position. It could be 12v or 5v so a voltmeter should be used to detect it. If no power check fuses. Possible bad charge fuse or wiring to the alternator. If power supply is there, possible faulty alternator ( even though it's new )

Why is 97 ford ranger not charging, with new alternater


Some units have a fuse within 30 inches of the Alternator. Another common problem is the small wire connector on the Alternator. While the plastic connector may look like it is attached in the seat of the Alternator, actually the metal contacts can push up through the plastic connector.

Check for power to the small Alternator wires. You need power to the small wires to make the Alternator work. The Alternator gets this power when the Ignition switch is ON.

I have 1988 camaro i-roc it had a v-6 in in it some one change it over to 350 can,t get it to charge can you help think sam


the alternator wiring is the same for both engines.make sure you have power on the large red wire at the alternator and the plug connector is clean and tight for the 2 wire plug for the regulator.it should have a small wire from the battery wire to this 2 wire plug and the brown wire is generally used to put out the light on the dash when its charging.next there is a D shaped hole on the back of the alternator that you can insert a metal cotter pin into until you feel a tab and ground the tab with the cotter pin by touching the pin to the alternator case and the charging system should start to charge.use a volt meter to check the voltage.if it doesn`t charge when you do this or you don`t hear the charging system start to charge then the voltage regulator is not working and needs replacing.

My battery light and my brake light comes on at the same time. after that my car went completely dead. I replaced the alternator and the wire that connects to the alternator and I am still having the...



1. Check the voltage on the White/Red wire at the 2-pin connector on the alternator. Key on engine off there should be near zero volts and when the engine is running and the alternator is charging the voltage should the charging system voltage (13.8 - 14.2 volts). Voltage drop the alternator case to battery negative. Voltage drop the battery positive circuit to the Black/Red wire (Large wire on output post) and the Yellow/Black wire in the 2-pin connector (sensing voltage). Looking for 0.05 volts maximum.

2. Disconnect the 2-pin connector at the alternator when the engine is running and the alternator light is on. The light should go out. If not, then there is a circuit problem (shorted to ground).

Just changed alternator in 99 Taurus, battery light is still on.


Check with a test light, Power on the main post. Then unplug the three pin connector, you need to test for power to the regulator. I think the wire is green/red. It's not the white wire. The green/red wire is fed from the alt fuse in the underhood fuse box. The white wire is just a jumper wire to the one pin connector next to the three pin. The other wire goes to the light. If one of the pins in the Three pin connector( like i said i think its the green wire) and the main stud both show power, the take the alternator back and get another one.
