Question about Cars & Trucks
My forearm remote will not switch on. After charging, the battery (0171971b01) in the side pocket holder gives one green light and one red (from an initial two reds) - I do not know if this means the battery is charged or faulty. Can anyone email any instructions for the jacket and its systems firstname.lastname@example.org which would help to guide me in fault finding. The jacket , tho' a few years old, has never been used.

Couple of things to check, first this may be nothing more than a belt that has loosened or stretched after the install.There should only be about a quarter of an inch stretch in the belt between pulleys. Caution - only check with engine stopped!!! The alternator causes a strong resistance when it is producing electric power, so slippage is to be checked first. Second, if the battery light comes on and off; it maybe acting in error. Get a multi-meter and check the battery voltage with car and ignition shut off. With the meter set on 12volt bat, place the black probe on the negative side of battery or ground and the red probe on the positive side of battery. If you get a reading of 12.66 v the battery is being charged and is full. If you get 12.45 you have a 50% charged battery. If less the alternator wiring needs further checking into as there maybe issues with wiring or the alternator itself. Hope this helps.

Probably a short brush in the alternator, if you can find a specialist auto electrician it is possable to replace the brush/control pack but most places want to stripe you for an exchange unit.

Try changing the alternator - it may be cheaper in the long run - used spares can be very reasonable and an alternator is easily fitted.
If the diode valve pack has gone in the alt. then the readings would be out anyway - this is the more common fault.
