The previous solution is incorrect. If he has an '88 land cruiser, it is an FJ62 model and therefor has in internal voltage regulator that will require you to take out the alternator to access it. Once the alternator is out, remove the back housing, then the remove the five screws that hold the regulator in place. It looks like the picture I have linked up. Good luck.

SOURCE: voltage regulator

Voltage regulator is built-in to the alternator assembly.

Have you tried replacing the battery?
A battery with a shorted cell will not charge properly and may even damage an alternator or regulator.

Note1: use a digital voltmeter (about $25 at Lowe's or Radio Shack) and check voltage across batt terminals while engine running. If more than 12.6 Volts DC and more typically about 13 Volts, then the alternator is working.

Note2: from Jan 98 to May 98 shows a different part # alternator than June - Dec 98
check the manufacture date on your driver door edge.

The voltage regulator is built directly inside the alternator case. If the regulator fails, you need to replace the alternator.

Hi there:



All Bosch, Nippondenso, Mitsubishi, and Chrysler (late model) alternators have an integral electronic voltage regulator. Voltage regulator replacement on these models requires removal and disassembly of the alternator.





Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Battery is not charging. Test of electrical system seems to show a problem with voltage regulator. Where is it located?


Hello pkbanta: My name is Roger and I will help with your answer. The voltage regulator is located on the back of the alternator. You must remove the alternator in order to replace the regulator. I would have the alternator tested before just replacing the voltage regulator. If the brushes are bad you could receive the same reading of a bad regulator. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fox Ya. Roger

Where is the voltage regulator located on my 91 GMC K1500 5.7L?


The voltage regulator is inside of the alternator, it is an integral voltage regulator, so if the voltage regulator is faulty, the whole alternator needs to be replaced.

Where is the voltage regulator located.


The Electronic Voltage Regulator (EVR) is not a separate component. It is actually a voltage regulating circuit located within the Power train Control Module (PCM). The EVR is not serviced separately. If replacement is necessary, the PCM must be replaced. Hope this helped and best wishes.
