Toyota rav4 fuses


You need to check your alt fuse. It is going to be a big one, I think it is on the positive cable attached to your battery. should be 100-120 amp fuse. If it even looks suspect then I would change it out. You will also have a alt fuse in the main fuse block under the hood. Should be a 40 amp. There is a kill fuse it should be numbered 1 and 2 or just number one. If that one is blown you will not be going anywhere.

1999 Toyota Avalon battery discharge light and abs light intermittent. Changed battery and alternator no change to issue. Checked voltages with multimeter 12.73 with car off and 17.03 with car on. Ple


17v on is bad. its too high.
are you using a good voltmeter. a DMM, ? or relic analog meter.?
you put a new alternator in the car? not from autozoned i hope.
the wiring to the Alternator must be all good, them includes the case ground and battery cables, end to end, good and tight and not corroded.
the regulator is inside your ALT>
the ALT has 5 connections 1 is ground. any bad, reg can go nuts.
newer cars , go less nuts. they detect more errors and shut down
your is overcharging and will burn a battery up in no time.(heat)
wire:
Grounds good.
idiot lamp ,must be there, an working or alt may start up dead.
the lamp creates excitation currents, to boot up ALT.
wire B, goes to battery via fuse link, if this big wire fails. all bets off.
wire IG goes to 7.5A gage fuse, it must not be blown.
wire S, (sense) is 5amp ALT-s fuse, this senses battery voltage
if this wire drops in voltage the ALT will go to max. (or shut down)
toss coin there, lots of regs sub'd out in so many years, and rebuilts.

the regulator is not working right.
that means 3 things.
1: reg is bad.
2: reg is being lied to. (bad wires) even bad battery.

The battery warning light is blinking on and off on my 2001 Corolla. Should I replace the battry or could it be the alternator?


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Although the battery sign indicates that you have a faulty alternator, it is wise to have your battery checked first. When tested and the battery sits on BAD then the battery will surely need replacement. If the battery is good then go for the alternator replacement.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
