I know the alternators are cheap (autozone), but they replace them for free. I have the replacement tested in the store before I leave and passes. When I install it on the truck, with a fully charged battery, it tests as bad.

change your battery cables and check all wires on the alternator for loose connections, expecially the grounds.

SOURCE: Charging Light On After Replacing Alternator/Battery1999Windstar

Hi, I can't tell you exactly what is wrong because there is too much involved at this point, what with 2 shops working with it, but I can give you some advise on what else to check. On the alternators and the wiring that supports them a small volt charge is taken off one of the slip rings, where the brushes ride, for the purpose of turning out the light. As I remember, this is a yellow wire that runs back to the dash.

To the alternator, it would be one of the wires that plug into the side of the alternator case.

SOURCE: Alternator keeps going bad - three so far. Battery light flickering off/on now.

Having worked for an Isuzu dealer I have seen this a lot with aftermarket alternators from places like auto-zone, napa etc. For some reason they will do strange things in these vehicles. The fix was to get a Isuzu alternator. We did have good luck with Beck Arnly alternators also. We also had a local rebuilder repair some with good luck too. If all else fails get a used one.

SOURCE: 1993 Dodge D350 diesel alternator not charging

Hi, I will keep this short, but just a tip on the tester they use, I had one bench tested and it showed up it was good and the built in regulator was good also. Put it in the auto along with a $75 battery, and the discharge light was still on!!. So, I checked all of the charging circuit wiring finding nothing wrong, and put a rebuilt alternator on. Took care of my problem, the alternator was intermittent, sometimes charging when they checked it at Auto-Zone, but stopped putting out when I put it back on the car. I lived 16 miles from the auto store, so it was a pain going back and forth, plus the cost of gas!! I would change it out if you can at this time. I am sure this is what is going on if all looks good under the hood as far as wiring. Check to see if you have the 75 amp alternator fuse under hood also. It may be gone. Make sure the hot cable to the alternator and wiring plug is OK. Change it out and you will be good!
Please keep me posted on the out come and don't forget to rate me :))

1988 Mitsubishi mighty max alternator wiring

most alternators are just 2 wires yellow/green usually go to the dash bulb to say alternator is working, thick red is direct to battery, some models have an extra earth, there are a few types of duel alternators that are designed to charge more than one battery, these have 2 bolt polls one standard size and another half the size this one is for the spare battery i.e battery for fridge etc. hope this helps. battery light on dash is usually spade connector.

Mitsubishi Mighty Max 92 needs to be trouble shot. Started up after sitting for an extended period of time, what parts were affected. It dosnt want to shift or drive really

I recommend changing out your transmission fluid, make sure you replace the screen too. After a vehicle have set for a long period of time it s good to flush all the fluids if you did replace them prior to the vehicle being stored.

Get the battery checked out, even if it is new. I found out this on mine after I replaced the alternator and the battery was fully charged. After it had run a while it would not start back up, Got it tested at an interstate battery shop and they said it was borderline on the load machine, but the digital $$$ machine said replace battery. Good thing it was still under warranty , free replacement. Been driving ever since then no problems.

92 Mighty Max. Won't engage the starter. Pulled starter out , it tested great. is their a fuse somewhere ? The Chiltons manual is worthless on this issue.

No fuse but dirty terminals and low voltage will cause this. Check out the voltage first, has to be over 12, more like 13 volts. then check the electrolyte fluid in the battery, if one cell is dead or even half dead, it will cause problems. Then if all checks out, clean off the terminals with one of those round battery cleaners, bolt them up tight, It should work. Check it out.
