    Thank you for your help. The problem i had was the truck had been convrted over to a higher voltage alt. and it went bad so i replaced it hooked it up the way it was hooked up by the person I baught the truck from but he voltage was too high i guess because wires started to smoke. So i wanted to switch it back. I hooked it up today charging good.

    The stator wire that travels from the fuse box to the regulator is usually the one from the dash board ALT or GEN light via the ignition switch. When you turn the key to on position it directs power to the regulator and then the stator to initially excite the stator's magnetic field. Once the engine starts the alternator feeds the field itself and the dash light shuts off.

You do not need the stator wire to hook to anything. It normally goes to the voltage regulator to supply the ignition source. The regulator needs 12 and ign which is normally supplied through the stator wire and a wire to alt feild and chassis grnd. The stator after fusebox is tied in with carb elec choke. you can make sure the elc choke and regulator have 12v at ign on and not worry about alt stator

How to wire a altinator on a 1982 Ford motor home


Your voltage regulator will have four connectors on it, I, A, S, and F.
I stands for Ignition and goes to a keyed power source. A stands for Alternator and goes to the Battery terminal on the Alternator. S stands for Stater and goes to the Stater terminal on the Alternator. The F stands for Field and goes to the Field terminal on the Alternator. The Battery terminal on the Alternator will also have a fused wire going directly to the Battery along with the A wire from the Voltage Regulator.

Battery light alternator


The Charge lamp comes on with the Alternator fails to keep battery charge going. (lots of way to fail, and ALT Is 100% good) it's a system. each part of it must be good, end to end.
so...
i put my voltmeter across battery, i start car, i see 13.3 to 15vdc, alt is good.
no? , i see now, 12.2v. ALt is dead, (i didnt say bad) and battery is sightly discharged, 12.6v is charged. (key off, rested voltage)
This 12v tells me the ALT is shut down. only why is the question.

how can any charge system fail,
bad battery tops the list here, they LOVE to fail.
1: belt slips.
2: belt missing
3: bad alt.
4: bad wires to ALT . (corrosion on any wire or lug)
5: fuses blown , any listed below.:
your alt is not an ECU controlled, alt ,its 100% self contained

did you ever remove the ALT and blow the 100 amp fuseable link
the first step of any alt pul, is the pull the NEG, battery lug or BOOM.

im logged in to alldata.com so can you.

and what do i see.
a 5 wire ALT. one is the frame ground, so it must not be rusty or..... it fails. frame to engine block. no rust here.

wire L , yellow.goes to dash LEDs (alt failure idiot lamps) (this works)
wire. S white goes to ALT 5a fuse, is it blown?
wire :B B/G color, goes to the 100 amp link fuse. (blown>?)
wire IG Red-white, goes to a fuse marked 10A gauge.

i think the IG wire is the voltage sense wire.
no sense, no charge. I think the whole I/P dash cluster goes dead when this fuse blows.

The S wire is the boot strap voltage sense, it wakes up the regulator .
if open , the reg stays asleep, as does ALT.
Alternators can not self start, the regulator has boot strap device
that cures that. called self excitation. so this wire is critical.
All wires except the L wire is critical. in this case.

the B wire is the big wire, it charges the battery . 50amps or more..

any of the 5 paths open , kills the ALT dead.
The REG inside the ALT can also shut it down.
eg: battery bad, with huge cell resistances. total.
eg: overvoltge for any reasons. including attempts top run car with no battery, (dont ask)
eg: over current (battery cells 1 to 6 shorted) or 25 KC lamps added.
eg: over temperature shut down.

that is about it.

Alternator wire diagram


I'm afraid not. The alternators as well as the trucks are wired differently.
The black yellow wire on both models goes to the fuse box, but on the 2005 model with the extra wire, the gray orange and brown white wires goe to the engine computer which acts as the voltage regulator. The 2003 computer would not have provisions for those circuits.

Start your engine and take digatal multimeter and ground the black probe and put the red one on the back on the alternators large red wire and read the voltage it should between 13-15 volts anything more or less then you will need to replace the alternator.

01 olds intrigue two wires coming from a fuse box under the hood, one to the battery one to the alternator, the one to the alt has a fuse link in it and the wire was spliced together at one time between...


first thing you need the fuse on that wire second either you have a short between the alt and bat or your alt might be grounded internally auto zone has a tester to check the voltage from your alt. it may have a faulty voltage regulator

Changed the battery and the alternator still no charge voltage runs at 11.5 for about five mins then drops to 9.4


That means the alternator is bad and needs to be replaced. The alternator charges the battery up to about 13.7 vdc. But check the wiring on the alt. first. There is a large wire that hooks to the alt. That wire should have the same voltage as the battery does. If that wire is right you need a new alt.

Wiring schematic for plymouth grand voyager 1995


Is there green corosion on the tip of the wire ? Chances are the answer is yes. You will have to detach the fuse panel/box and run a new wire and connector to the fuse panel. Splice into the wire you can see, but make sur you cut enough of the wire off to get rid of the corrosion.Hope this helps.
