Open Question

Does the 2001 Mercedes E320 have an Alternator Fuse

The 'Battery/Alternator Viist WorkShop !' warning light came on yesterday. The battery is a month old so I removed the alternator and took it to AutoZone to test. They reported it passed the check. Is there a fuse for the alternator. I have reviewed the fuse diagram and it is basically greek. Does anyone know if there is a fuse for this, if so, which one and where is it located. Thanks in advance JD

SOURCE: method of charging a 2004 Mercedes E320 battery

It is always safer to charge the battery out of circuit, Removal of one cable will insure you can safely charge without hurting electronics on board. Generally if your battery is already sufficiently charged it acts like a capacitor in the circuit and will prevent damage, but many battery chargers do not always put out a pure dc voltage and this can damage electonics.

Most likely cause is the 'stop lamp switch'
It is a electric switch located on the brake pedal inside the car, about half way up on the brake pedal.
Pretty cheap too, I think the switch is only like $25 bucks.
2 connectors on the switch and then it turns out.
hope that helps
Fan relay should be in black box near frewall

This is normally a low voltage from the alternator condition. Hook a voltmeter to the battery and note the reading. Should be 11.6vdc to 12.2vdc. Start the car, after a minute or so it should be around 13 to 14 vdc., if not then the alternator may be bad

Usually the fuse chart is in with the tool kit in the trunk underneath the carpet on left hand side. It will be held with velcro. The fuse chart has the fuse box locations on it as well. If not the fuse box locations are 1-in the trunk on the left side behind the little carpet panel. remove panel and then remove plastic cage looking cover and the padding. 2- on the drivers side of the dash. open door and remove cover. 3- in the engine compartment by the hood hinges. slide tabs and remove cover.

Can alternator put out 14.2 volts but not enough amps to charge battery and turn off dattery light?


Yes and no.
It sounds like you have a wiring problem.
The alternator output could be 14 volts and only one or two amps, but that would be enough to kill the warning light. Its more likely the alternator is charging but the current is not reaching the battery.

Why does the Engine Warning light come up but other warning lights like battery, oil pressure etc.don't show up in ignition mode & the car doesn't start?


Sounds like a wire was not re-installed under the hood. When the alternator or battery were replaced, there are several power wires under the hood that attach to the same power terminal. Look for a RED wire with a large round connector, that is just hanging out in the open air. You need to install it back onto the post that it came off of. good luck.

1999 Toyota Tacoma battery keeps dying


This is easy to test but you need a multimeter. Connect the multimeter to the battery and run the engine at a fast idle (say 2000 rpm). You should get a voltage reading anywhere from 14 to 15 volts if the battery is fully charged and the alternator is working. If the reading is around 12 volts, then the alternator is not working.

Yesterday I noticed my battery light was on, this morning I was driving lost the instrument panel and then the truck died, one battery is only 4 months old, but the other battery is very old, now truck...


The battery light does not necessarily indicate a problem with the batteries but does warn you if there is a problem with the charging system.

The likely scenario is that the alternator has gone bad. You will need to charge the batteries or jump start the vehicle and with it running check for voltage at the battery. You should see more than 13.5 volts and ideally somewhere around 14+ volts. If you see anything less than its likely the alternator has gone bad.

Hi,

Thanks for using Fixya!

Sounds like you have an alternator problem. The alternator may have gone bad due to non use. Some parts inside may have rusted out and got damaged. Better bring your car to your local mechanic and have the alternator checked.

Have a wonderful day.

Go by autozone or a parts store and see if they will use a scaner on the van to determine what is wrong. Likly though it will be the Alternator.
