Alternators don't have external regulators. If you need a regulator, You need a better brand alternator Good Luck,Ned

    Beetles do have external regulators but they have dynamo's in stead of alternators.

Have 1974 VW Beetle with wiring mess. Cut wires, missing terminals, poor splices, etc. Would like wiring diagram so I can start chasing wires and fix problems.


You might want to invest into manual (Clymers or Haynes) available at any good parts store - Autozone, Advance, etc or Amazon.com - There are many pages of wiring diagrams and it would be too easy to download wring ones. Get a manual for ease of fix.

The best way to go about doing this is with a wiring diagram. Go to faxonautoliterature, they have the original VW service manual for you car and it should have the wiring diagram you will need. I have used them before and found their service to be excellent. Hope this helps.

Alternator or Voltage regulator


if you can carefully put a metal wrench on the rotating pulley of the alternator and felt a magnetism attracting the metal wrench, then your alternator is charging. if there is no magnetism, then the alternator is not charging...

another test is to measure the voltage on the small wires that went in to the alternator that says "F" for field, it should measure battery voltage...that is the voltage from the regulator..that means your regulator is working...but the altrntor is not..

without that battery voltage, then the regulator is he culprit...



pls be carefull...

hope i was able to solve ur problem..

pls rate me.. tnx, drcool..
