Have 1985 w150 pick up that's not charging, replaced battery,voltage regulator,an alternator, an still not charging


1985 WOW ! does it run at all ? if it does , check battery voltage, should be between 12---14 volts, check alternator also, a parts store can do this for you ! is your regulator outside your alternator ? cause most new alternators have them inside the alternator ! just thinking out loud, but stranger things have happened ! are these new parts the correct ones for your make & model ? battery terminals clean, tight ! make sure all GROUNDS are good ! very important ! what condition are your battery cables ? is your BELT good, tight, not slipping !!! sure your starter & solonoid OK ! not shorting out, from dirt, grease, oil, etc., all fuses OK! I think we covered it, take your time, go over what I mentioned, see it you find the problem, good luck !

84 dodge ram battery wont charge


If it has a voltage regulator it should get power from the key switch to the field wire on the regulator.
You should have battery voltage at the big wire on the alternator with the key off.
I would check for a fuseable link between the alternator and the battery first.

Bought a new alt. for a 1990 w150 p/u. gauge showes its not charging. need to know where regulator is located and pic. of what it looks like.


The engine computer is also the voltage regulator.

I copied the following from another site. It might be something you should look at.

"The voltage regulator is built-in to the ECM...about a $275 part! However, before you jump to conclusions about the voltage regulator being defective, I'd highly recommend that you go visit the autozone website and follow the "Check charging system" word for word. I discovered that the alternator in my 1990 Dodge van wasn't grounding? How could that be? It's bolted to a metal bracket, right? Could be corrosion, could be rust? I even installed a second ground strap from engine to body. Nothing worked until I ran a ground wire from the battery to the alternator case. Charged just great then! Of course I discovered this after first replacing the alternator and the ECM! Don't you make the same (expensive) mistake."

My 1987 dodge w 150 wont hold a charge ive changed the alernator battery as well as the voltage regulator. when i charge the battery it holds a charge for about 5 to 6 starts


Could be a short. Have you checked the voltage at the battery with the car running? Is it over 14 volts?

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5925550-dead_battery_troubleshooting . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

My 1987 dodge dakota is not holding a charge, altonator tested and good battery only a year old but have to push start it to get it to run and my lights are really dim


You need to bypass voltage regulator to be certain alternator is charging properly. When you full field alternator it eliminates voltage regulator. If it indeed is good it will overcharge. If it overcharges as it should when you bypass/full field alternator then the regulator, or its connection or the place it attaches to is rusty & wont conduct a ground.
