change the drive belt and have the voltage regulator in the back of the alternator checked out and also check for any draws on the car anywhere cause this can cause the alternator to over charge trying to keep the battery charged up

98 chevy malibu my alt isnt charging new alt batt test good cut out the fuselink on starter the alt wire runs thru firewall If i run a wire straight to the batt it is putting out 19v any suggestions


Did you check the fuse in the under hood fuse box ? GEN / BATT fuse 10amp . Is your check engine light on ? This is a computer controlled charging system , it should have four wires connected to the alternator . 1 - the heavier wire on the back ,this comes fro the starter - the one with fusible link , you could have checked for battery voltage with voltmeter ! The three other wires in the connector are the orange one ,this comes from the GEN / BATT fuse an should have battery voltage ! The last two come from the PCM - engine computer . The gray wire is the turn on signal from the PCM an the Red wire is the control from PCM ! Charging System Wiring Diagram MOTOR Magazine Article MOTOR Information Systems

Alt. won't charge


Probably.
The volt gauge turns the alternator on once the engine is running. There could be a short in the circuit board inside the cluster.

I have a 1991 mercury capri. Tonight when i was driving home the tail lights and dash lights quit working and the headlights were very very dim. Is this a broken fuse problem or something else?


Check your alt.. alt voltage output should be at least 13.2, sounds like it's not charging and your possibly running off the battery, as for the dash and tail lights, there both on the same system, check the fuse.

Location of Alternator relay in 1987 Nissan Pintara 4cyl EFI, new alternator, new battery, fusable link ok, not charging properly, no charge light on dash.


I am assuming that when you say no alt light on dash , you mean that when you first turn key on for the bulb check it won't light. i f this is true then I would be looking at replacing the bulb first. most car's use the bulb in the dash as part of the excitment circut to get the alt to start charging.

Battery indicator light on.


Check the alternator at the battery terminal with a voltage guage and engine running. At the battery terminal with engine OFF voltage should be at least 12volts with engine running it should be at least 14volts. If it Not 14 volts with engine running then the alternator is UNDER charging and will trigger the light on the dash. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA.

Battery light on


It is possible that the extra demand placed upon the charging system finally blew the alternator.
You need to have the charging system checked,,or check the output yourself with a volt meter (should be around 14-15 volts) test must be done with the car running.
If the voltage reads up to 14 or 15 volts then it would indicated a short in the dash control circuit.
