Question about 2000 Jeep Wrangler

Jeep wrangler alternator prob

You helped me the other day with the issue and said that my alternator was internally regulated. I just got a new alternator and a sticker right on it along with a tech sheet says "alternator externally regulated" . Now I am confused. The old one was tested and failed the DC volt output test. Help..

If this is a 2000 JEEP WRANGLER TO MY KNOWLEGE this vehcle does not have an external regulator. ITS built into the alternator. There is 6 sylinder and 4 cylinder wrangler in that year and neither have an external regulator. Good luck and conatc if you needmore help. Check this link out..

1993 Jeep Wrangler charging problem

nothing wrong with the ECM unless it has the voltage regulator as part of the system
indicates faulty wiring and faulty alternator
have a load test done on the battery
have an auto electrician do a full charging system check
charging voltage should be 14.5-14.8 volts DC
battery voltage should be 12-13.5 volts dropping to 11 volts when cranking the engine
make sure that the drive belt tension is correct and the belt is in good condition

I try to find the alternator regulator because I boost my jeep by the wrong ways the black on the red and the red on the black and after my yj comes to burn the 50 amperes fuse

The regulator is built into the Alternator. If you backfed the system you may have cooked the Diode and the regulator and will need to replace the Alternator completely.

I have a 92 jeep wrangler with a 4.0L 6cyl and it starts up but it idles very low. then after a little bit it idles normal and then back to a low idle again.

I suggest check your alternator with the voltage regulator eqpt or ensure the timing marks with regards to the timing belt are perfectly match base to the original manufacture/production...have a nice day!!

1991 jeep wrangler: alternator overcharging

It sounds as the voltage regulator which is built into the back of the alternator has stuck. Occaisionally this even happens on new ones. Would suggest taking the alternator back as it shoud be under warranty.
