Question about 2004 Ford Crown Victoria
Posted by Anonymous on
Older fords have external voltage regulators. Were do your wires run from alternator ?

Sounds as if the voltage regulator is going bad. Most are now located on or inside the alternator itself. Passing the test with the problem being intermittent makes a case for the regulator. I suggest getting a regulator, or replace the alternator with a friends if you have one whose model will fit.

Hi, I can't tell you exactly what is wrong because there is too much involved at this point, what with 2 shops working with it, but I can give you some advise on what else to check. On the alternators and the wiring that supports them a small volt charge is taken off one of the slip rings, where the brushes ride, for the purpose of turning out the light. As I remember, this is a yellow wire that runs back to the dash.
To the alternator, it would be one of the wires that plug into the side of the alternator case.

How is the alternator belt? There might be a loose connection at the battery, alternator, ground cable. Without a lot of detail, there are 1 way diodes in alternators, when the diodes go bad, the current will go the way it's not to, when this happens, it powers the light in the dash. Try wiggling the connectors, maybe that would make the light come on, if there is a bad connection.
