Battery light came on a few days ago. Then it came back on then van just went dead, Nothing comes on now. It is a chrysler 2006 town and country van. I have noticed a loud noice coming from the serpine...


The battery charge light comes on when the alternator is not generating electricity therefore there is nothing recharging your battery so it goes dead. This could be because your alternator is worn out or a wire broke but it is more likely that the fanbelt broke and is not turning the alternator.

How do I remove the alternator on my 1998 Dodge 1500 4wd?


WARNING: DISCONNECT NEGATIVE CABLE FROM BATTERY BEFORE REMOVING BATTERY OUTPUT WIRE (B+ WIRE) FROM GENERATOR. FAILURE TO DO SO CAN RESULT IN INJURY OR DAMAGE TO ELECTRICAL SYSTEM .

  1. Disconnect negative battery cable at battery. Diesel Engines: Disconnect both negative battery cables at both batteries.
  2. Remove generator drive belt.
  3. dak408_183.gif

  1. Remove generator pivot and mounting bolts/nut. The diesel engine uses a bolt at top mounting and a bolt/nut at lower mounting. Position generator for access to wire connectors.
dak408_184.gif
  1. Remove nuts from harness holddown, battery terminal, ground terminal and 2 field terminals. Remove wire connectors. A typical generator wiring harness is shown in. Wiring harness routing as shown may be slightly different depending on vehicle model and/or engine.
  2. Remove generator from vehicle.
INSTALLATION
  1. Position generator to engine and install wiring to rear of generator. Tighten all wiring fasteners as follows:
    • Battery terminal nut-8.5 N.m (75 in. lbs.)
    • Ground terminal nut-8.5 N.m (75 in.lbs.)
    • Harness holddown nut-8.5 N.m (75 in. lbs.)
    • Field terminal nuts-2.8 N.m (25 in. lbs.)
  1. Install generator mounting fasteners and tighten as follows:
    • Generator mounting bolt-All gas powered engines-41 N.m (30 ft. lbs.)
    • Generator pivot bolt/nut-All gas powered engines-41 N.m (30 ft. lbs.)
    • Generator mounting bolt-Diesel powered engines-54 N.m (40 ft. lbs.)
    • Generator pivot bolt/nut-Diesel powered engines-54 N.m (40 ft. lbs.)

CAUTION :
  • Never force a belt over a pulley rim using a screwdriver. The synthetic fiber of the belt can be damaged.
  • When installing a serpentine accessory drive belt, the belt MUST be routed correctly. The water pump will be rotating in the wrong direction if the belt is installed incorrectly, causing the engine to overheat.
  1. Install generator drive belt.
  2. Install negative battery cable(s) to battery(s).

I have a Oldsmobile v6 intrigue. my old tensioner broke but i replace it. and now im trying to put back on the belt. do i need to losing the generator or anything else to tighten the timing belt?


Is it the timing belt or the generator/alternator belt? If you're talking about the alternator/generator belt. The new tensioner should have a square hole that you can fit a half inch driver like a ratchet or a pull bar into to hole it back and install the belt.

1996 Grand AM 3.1L serpentine belt replacement


Try this procedure.
0900823d8004ed44.jpg


To replace a worn belt, locate the idler or generator pulley.

0900823d8004ed45.jpg


Loosen the hold-down fastener for the idler or generator pulley.

0900823d8004ed46.jpg


Pry the idler or generator pulley inward to release the belt tension and remove the belt.

0900823d8004ed47.jpg


Match the old belt up for size with the new replacement belt.

0900823d8004ed48.jpg


Observe the belt routing diagram in the engine compartment.

0900823d8004ed49.jpg


Install the new belt over each of the drive pulleys. Often the manufacturer recommends a sequence for feeding the belt around the pulleys.

Pry out the idler or generator pulley to put tension on the belt.
Pry out the idler or generator pulley to put tension on the belt.

0900823d8004ed74.jpg


Install the belt squarely in the grooves of each pulley.

0900823d8004ed75.jpg


Before adjusting belt tension, check for proper pulley alignment. This is especially critical with serpentine belts. Measure the belt deflection in its longest span. If a belt tension gauge is available, use it and compare the tension to specifications.
If a belt is too tight, wear to bearings for the water pump, alternator, and engine crankshaft can result.
Some late-model Chrysler engines require a torque reading to be taken when tension is applied to the generator drive belt. This is especially important on the longer, multiribbed V-belts.

0900823d8004ed76.jpg


Pry the idler or generator pulley to adjust the belt to specifications.

0900823d8004ed77.jpg


Tighten the idler or generator pulley fastener.

0900823d8004ed78.jpg


Start the engine and check the belt for proper operation.

Any more questions please ask. Good luck.
