Green/red is the charge lamp circuit. when grounded it should turn the light on,if it doesnt, you may have a blown fuse. the lamp circuit provides the "turn on" signal to the alternator as a positive voltage. the voltage regulator is a gounded load until the alt starts charging, than it puts out a positive voltage to turn out the light.

    put a bulb in the circuit or voltage regulator will burn up

  • Robert Kearsey Nov 10, 2014

    Ok I will

    It will also need to be switched or it will drain the battery.

98 ford explorer on 3rd alternator, all do same thing. Charge at 13.5v until you add a load such as lights or fan, then voltage drops off. I have 2 wires going into the regulator. one has battery voltage...


I guess my first question is what does the voltage drop to ?
Normal output would be 13.5 at idle with no accessories on. Then less as you add accessories if you continue at idle speed.
Once you raise RPM above 1500 you should gain output back up above 13.5 volts.
You have a yellow white wire that is fed from the same circuit as the large black orange wire. The small green red wire is coming from the gauge or warning light and it will be less than battery voltage.

Voltage regulator fuse keeps blowing on my 98 ford explorer


Well I looked at the wiring diagram and I did not see a 30amp fuse.
There is a 15amp, a 7.5 amp, and the two fuseable links between the battery and the alternator. Thats not to say a 30amp fuse for the charging system does not exist, but its not in the standard diagram.
Do you have battery power on the large alternator post when the key switch is off ? And do you have power on the lite green and red wire when the key switch is on ?

97 ford explorer alternator connector has 2 wires yellow and green which one is the ground? I have lost a ground and my alternator is not charging or maybe it is a fuse alternator is new battery is new


there is a fuse in the output line of the alternator, but the colors you describe don't sound right, the only way you could find if one of these wires is ground would be to connect a multi-meter or battery continuity tester to ground and touch each wire(make sure battery is disconnected first) with the other lead and see if its grounded
