The alternator is one of the easiest engine parts to replace. The trickiest part is setting the tension on the serpentine belt once you\'ve installed it, though your vehicle\'s part may have a self-setting tensioner. You can watch any online video on how to change an alternator and it will give you all you need to know. I have replaced alternators on several vehicles in several non-garage locations including a street in NYC (which is illegal, so that should give you an idea of how quickly I got it done.)



Alternatively, if you have an Advance Auto Parts nearby, their employees replace batteries in customer vehicles for free and are often inclined to help people who show them courtesy and respect. At the very least, they can run a volt meter to your alternator and determine whether it\'s dead. (You will want to be very nice and hopefully proffer a tip to get this kind of above-and-beyond service; it\'s the right thing to do.)

Why is my alternator over charging


Probably the voltage regulator is bad. Since the regulator is part of the alternator, it's best to have the alternator replaced. Unfortunately, replacing an alternator on these cars is not a simple job. Look for other posts on this website about replacing the alternator: if you're not comfortable with doing it for yourself, take it to a qualified shop.

My 2000 ford contour lopes at an idol, every battery I put in it ends up dead with no juice.


This sounds like a charging system problem as in no alternator output, has the charging system been tested for proper output under a load? Autozone and Advance auto do this test for free have it done and get back to us with the results.

Ford Contour possible short


Check the alternator is not faulty.
The battery terminal voltage when engine is running should be approx 14.5V with headlights or venilation blower motor running.
The battery light indicator 'on' usually means the alternator is not charging.

Yes. You also want to check your alternator. Weird as it sounds our electronic dash on a Lincoln had us doing 55mph at a stop. It was the alternator and you may need to check your backup generator for clean power. There is some kind of electronic term regarding "Sine" waves, that apparently matters alot. Good Luck

Check alternator/drive belt, & Have battery & charging system (alternator ) checked. Make sure connections at battery are clean & tight too. If you have a multimeter, check voltage before you start & after & see what it reads & let us know.
