Replace the alternator. Something inside is going haywire and sending mixed signals to the ECM.

It showing code 41. Generator field not switching properley.


This trouble code sets when the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) tries to regulate the generator field with no result during monitoring.
The PCM tries to maintain a system voltage between 12.9 volts and 15.0 volts. The voltage determined by the PCM as the final goal for the charging system is called "control" voltage. This control voltage is determined from the battery temperature sensor for ambient sensor and the sensed voltage system voltage at PCM pin #11.
The control voltage is compared to the sensed voltage continuously during running. If the sensed voltage is less than the control voltage, the PCM will supply more ground to the field circuit. If the sensed voltage is more than the control voltage, the PCM will supply less ground to the field circuit.
There are three possible causes for this, the field driver circuit open or shorted, there is an alternator internal open or short os a PCM failure

Rapid Continuous Flashing of Air Bag Indicator (No Diagnostic Trouble Code) Both Primary Crash Sensors Disconnected Assembly Plant Mode

TROUBLE CODE CLEARING

1. Follow the diagnostic procedures to service the fault condition flashing on the air bag indicator prior to code clearing.

2. Cycle the ignition switch to OFF and then to RUN.

3. Observe air bag indicator prove-out (six ? two seconds) followed by diagnostic trouble code (52-85) flashing completely one time.

4. Locate the Diagnostic "Trouble Code Clear" Connector (grey connector). located underneath the glove compartment, left side (06010) containing Circuits 631 (T/R) and 57 (BK).

5. Use a jumper wire to short Circuit 631 (T/R) to Circuit 57 (BK) or to another good ground. This short must be made after the diagnostic trouble code flashes completely one time, but before the warning light stays on continuously.

6. Hold short until air bag diagnostic monitor tone sounds (approximately five seconds).

7. Release short on Circuit 631 (T/R) to Circuit 57 (BK). This short must be released within 25 seconds after the diagnostic monitor tone sounds.

Diagnostic trouble code is now cleared from memory. Next highest priority diagnostic trouble code stored (if one exists) will begin flashing.

The codes and clearing proceedure above are to be used as a guide, NO claims are implied as to the correctness or accuracy of either.

I have a code 41 on my 93 grand chorkee 5.2 4x4


Fault Code 41

Description: Alternator field control circuit open or shorted
Power loss light: Off
Limp-in mode: None

Possible Causes
* Bad connection or wiring - Check the wiring and connections between the logic module and the power module. Clean and regrease any corroded connectors with dielectric grease and repair any shorts.

* Bad voltage regulator circuit - See Diagnosing Your Charging System

Diagnostic Method:
* Trigger Parameters
- Near 0V or near 12V not detected when the field coil driver is turned on or off, respectively

* Results If Component Fails
Fault code 41 is stored. If the condition persists, it will eventually result in a fault code 46 or 47.


Good luck.

The alternator on my girlfriends 91 Chrysler Lebaron isnt producing enough power to recharge or keep my battery charged. its giving me the codes DTC41, DTC 35, AND DTC 31, now i know that one of those...


There are 2 types of alternators for this vehicle .code 41 is a field circuit code for the alternator The SBEC controlls the charging rate of the alternator . It could be wiring connections or the SBEC ( computer) to be the problem .You may have to back probe some terminals to find the problem ,but first check all of the engine grounds including the negative battery cables. The fault code for the field circuit is most likely generated because of an open circuit . The SBEC (computer) supplies the ground to energize the field circuit ..

Hope this helps

Need to know what codes 13, 25, 41 are for ecm


13-"map sensor" vacuum side not working properly, or has vacuum leak.
25- AIS (automatic idle speed motor) malfunction, may be caused by vacuum leak as well, but check electrical connections.
41-alternator field circuit open, or shorted.

What problem are you having with vehicle, or does this point you in right direction?

1993 dodge stealth trouble code 14 & 41, car does not start


Code 14 is a faulty MAP sensor , and 41 is alternator field control circuit open or shorted. I'd start with checking and cleaning the connector at MAP sensor, and check all connection at alternator as well as battery. You'll need to replace MAP sensor and have alternator tested if cleaning doesn't cure it.
