Had my alternator go.It was running OK while idleing running about 14.0 volts and 40 amps but if you spead up the gas the voltage went to 19 plus volts and the amps went as high as 90 amps cutting out all...


Yes this is normal, the alternator is operating good, if it goes over 14.9 then thats to much, it sounds like the charging system is operating correctly.good day.

When i accelerate the battery light comes on the dash and the needle goes to high side in moy 02 ford ranger 4.0 i changed the battery, altenator, and belt what could it be?


This sounds like a voltage regulator problem, the voltage regulator is built into the altenator, check your connections to the altenator specfically the ones that plug in, make sure they are secure. The plug in connections provide signal for how much output is needed from the altenator, the regulator provides the output. Check the battery voltage with a voltmeter, turn on everything electrical, rev up engine and see if voltage goes over 14.5 volts, it should be steady. Hope this helps, let me know.

Electrical Problems


Al, this truck has a regulator locted inside the altenator, it also has a relay located in the power distribution box under the hood, see your owners manual for exact location, to verify an no charging problem, start the truck and measure the voltage at the battery, it should read 13.5v-14.5v, if not then the altenator is not working, most common problem is regulator failure requiring altenator replacement, hope this helps, let me know

Voltmeter drops to 9 volts on Chev 454 P30 motorhome


this is eithere a loose positive cable from the altenator to the battery or the regulator in the altenator is about to fail. if you have not had any problems starting the vehicle then most likely its a loose connection between the gauge and the charginging circuit or the gauge is faulty. take a multimeter and test the charging votage at the altenator while the vehicle is running it should measure 13.5 volts and should not change more than .5 volts. if the voltage drops more than 1 volt the regulater is bad and the altenator needs to be replaced. if it is working fine then looke for a bad connection make sure all positive and ground cables are tight. if they are replace amp gauge

1997 chevy 1500 wont stay runing


Ok, first, you need a new altemator. When you pulled off the battery cable with the truck running . it caused a voltage spike and fried the voltage regulator, which is internal on this particular altenator. If you want to check to see if the altenator is charging, use a volt meter.

Since it wouldn't start after you put the new altenator on, it could be one of two things, either you got a bad altenator which happens sometimes or, you have a weak battery and the altenator is tryng to charge itself to death.

Low volts light stays on


new altenator or junkyard one.if new return it, if junkyard just ignore light as its odds on they will not change it .the red light is caused by the difference in the voltage between input and output voltages .Quick test --start engine and run at 1500rpm disconnect battery and turn everything electrical on and if engine stops then change altenator if it stays running then altenator is OK

Voltage regulator


Voltage regulator is built-in to the alternator assembly.

Have you tried replacing the battery?
A battery with a shorted cell will not charge properly and may even damage an alternator or regulator.

Note1: use a digital voltmeter (about $25 at Lowe's or Radio Shack) and check voltage across batt terminals while engine running. If more than 12.6 Volts DC and more typically about 13 Volts, then the alternator is working.

Note2: from Jan 98 to May 98 shows a different part # alternator than June - Dec 98
check the manufacture date on your driver door edge.
