Keeps going out where? night clubs? did you check the belt tension? Checked the rectifier? attached to the alternator... checked and cleaned the 3 main wires? bench tested the output of the alternator?

My 1990 dodge dakota keeps throwing its belt


If you are not using a new belt, go get a new one. Belts stretch out over time.

If you are using a new belt, look at the part number on the belt and write it down. Take that down to an auto parts store and ask them for a belt between half-an-inch to an inch smaller. Replacing your alternator bracket may have changed the position of the alternator pulley in relation to the other routing points. Since it is throwing the belt, the stock belt is now too large, and you should try the next size down.

Got a 1990 ford taurus and new battery and new alternator but still has 3 amps of draw .what controls the alternator? the wire to it ...


Unfortunately if it was a rebuilt alternator it may have one bad diode causing it to bleed amps and drain the battery. With rebuilds this happens a lot these days. Either have the diodes tested or demand a different alternator under warranty.

Start up self diagnostic problems.


maybe a little corrosion on the connection from your alt? it could cause the higher resistance to make the voltage drop. the higher rpm's increase flow of electricity forcing it through the corrosion... maybe???

Get someone to change your alternator just a cheap one from the wreckers. or if you don't want it to happen again get a reconditioned one. They are easy to change over.
