I have changed 5 alternator in one day which where no good...I checked my 175 mega fuse it is ok i check the 30 amp fuse which had a 10amp fuse changed it to a 30 amp fuse but made it worse.. also check...


Five bad alternators in a row borders on the incredulous. 2, 3 maybe, but 5 is a Guinness world record! I have to ask the 30 amp fuse made what worse? Is it not charging? Have you tested the battery? Maybe it has a dead cell, won't take a charge. Recheck battery connections and grounds. Test the battery or try a different good battery. What testing tools are you using?

Battery discharges in about 3 days if not run.


it may have deffective diode on the charging system(the alternator). 14 volts is an over charge in a battery. ampere reading must be on what the battery designed.

My alternator won'charge and it and the battery


batteries will show 12 v and still not have enough amps to start the vehicle, clean all the connection points on the battery , and charge it fully, start the vehicle and check again for voltage at the battery posts, you should have a reading of 13.5 to 14.5 volts, if not, yes you have a alternator malfunction,

It sounds like what you fried is the diodes on the alternator. You are probably due for a new alternator. On the bright side, it's much cheaper than the computer.

Battery light is on, battery is good, I'm thinking voltage regulator, maybe the alternator


The battery light comes on when there is low voltage in the charging system. You can verify this by checking voltage at the battery with the engine running. You should see more than 13.5 volts and I suspect you will see around 12 volts. The usuall cause for this is the alternator and since the voltage regulator is internal to the alternaor it would make good sense to replace the entire alternator will a quality remanufactured alternator.

Jumped battery and car runs for a few minutes then lights just fade and car stalls, what is going on?


Could be couple of things,
A bad battery not holding a charge, should be a little over 12 volts with engine off.
A bad alternator not charging, should put out between 14 to 15 volts with engine running.
If there is an advanced auto near you, take them there, they will check them for free.

96 explorer turns over but starter is not engaging


I always check remans before they are installed; the Bendix may not be advancing the starter gear or you may have teeth missing from the flywheel. I'd pull the starter and check the condition of the flyhweel.
