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.

I have an issue with a 98 ford contour v6. all the lights pulse when the alternator is charging above idle. alt has been replaced.checked the fuse at rear of engine.any ideas about this problem.


This is usually caused by a failing regulator within the alternator, however, it would be a good idea to also check all engine to chassis grounding straps. Thank you.

It still sounds like the alternaror is putting out to many amps and more than 13.5 volts when hooked up but what you could do is to borrow one from someone else and try it if it runs ok then YOU NO THE ANSWER TO THAT

But let me know how you get on . Ron

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.

98 Ford Contour not charging


I dont know if yours is a 4 or 6 cyl. On the back of the motor by the firewall there is a 175 amp mega fuse inline on the positive cable comming from the battery. On the 4 cyl it is below the air box center of the back of the motor. On the 6 cyl, it is below the coil pack on the center back of the motor. Be sure to disconnect the negitave battery cable before you attempt this. There is a 3 inch long cover you pop off and you will see it. It takes a 10mm socket to unbolt it. Remove the fuse and ohm it out, if there is no continuity, you have a bad fuse, replace it. I have had 3 people replace their bats and alts ($350 in parts) just to find out it still had the problem. An $8 fuse. Good luck and hope this helps..
