SOURCE: how to change a voltage regulator for 95 buick

The voltage regulator is built in to the alternator. It's better to replace the whole alternator then to just replace the regulator. The regulator and other parts like the bearing all have about the same amount of life time, unless the battery is weak which can put extra taxes on the regulator. Good luck and hope this helps.

I have a 02 park ave.. my voltage odes not stay steady,,, it ranges fro 13.7 to as low as 10.5,, which sends a fault ,, that shows MAF is bad,, then when I get the engine to idle,, and the voltage is...


It sounds like you may have a bad voltage regulator. On some models the voltage regulator is inside the alternator so it may be bad. Normally when you turn the AC on there is a circuit that brings the engine idle up a bit to compensate for the load of the compressor, that too may be malfunctioning. Did you look up your vehicle on the internet to see if this is an issue with that particular model?

1991 park avenue change starter,alternator and battery, but battery light still on


I've had those machines says alternators are good when they really weren't; first try starting the car and disconnect the positive battery cable while it is running, don't touch the cable to anything, just hold it in the air... if the car stalls then the alternator is no good. "only do this for a few seconds, no more than 10 seconds"

The first thing you need to do is check for voltage at the back of the alternator. There is a big wire that bolts to the back of it and it should have battery voltage to it at all times. Check that wire for voltage, if it has voltage then I can help you go deeper to see what needs to be done. The voltage regulator is inside the alternator. Keep in mind that, on alternator replacement, the wires are not replaced with the alternator and could have a short.

Hope this helps and just 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.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Is there a fuse for the alternater


I believe here is some sort of breaker inside the alternator.. not positive though. There is however a voltage regulator inside the alternator, which would regulate how much current is to be sent to the battery..

Voltage meter in the car has a red light that has been blinking and now the meter keeps going up and down. from 10 to 13


Hi,
One possible cause would be the internal voltage regulator of the alternator is going bad.
Most parts stores provide a free check of the alternator and regulator.
Good Luck!!!,

Charge problem


Sounds like the alternator/voltage regulator. Take the car to an autoparts store and have them test the alternator output. Most parts stores will test the alternator for free. There is a definite charging problem if it has killed two batteries. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
