Why When I start my car the all dashboard warning lights come on and stay on but are pulsating. Could it be the altinator


Do you have a remote start system in the car? Some of these cause a pulsating light. They don't go out, but come on bright, then get dim. Back and forth. It stops after the key is inserted and put in the run position.

Hello I have a 2005 acura rl and I keep getting the battery light ad the alternator is not charging. I replaced the battery , alternator, and changed all terminals removed the ground and cleaned, ad s


Very possible you got a bad alternator. Have put a meter on it to see if it is charging an it is a fault. Sometimes connections an gauges break down.

Honda Civic 2005 LX automatic 1.7L. Replaced battery and alternator. Battery light is showing. I am told either wiring is bad or a fusible link that goes to the starer then alternator. Help. Put on


Not sure on your specific model, but they are usually either in wires near the battery + or near the starter big fat wire. You can identify them by close inspection of the wires to see a spot in the wire that looks as if something is spliced in. A small needle can be inserted into the wire on either side of the link to test for current passing through. When you find the bad one, making a good splice and soldering the new link in is best practice, using shrink wrap to insulate.

Bad eld wire or ecu?


Sounds like the alternator is charging, but the extra voltage is not reaching the battery. You should have battery voltage on the large wire at the alternator with the engine off.
If not, that wire is fried or a fuse is blown.

2000 astro van Battery and alternater are both new and checked out to be in working order. I am only getting 12 volts charging with the motor running should be 14 to 15 volts. In desperate need of ideas of...


You may have a voltage drop in the battery feed to the Alternator through the fuse link and into the battery. Check the charge rate at the battery feed on the Alternator, it should be at least 13.8 volts, if it is, locate the fuse link and check it there on both sides of the link, if its still good, follow the cable back to the battery checking the voltage as you go. If you find that the voltage suddenly drops across a connection or the fuse link, remove and clean the connection or replace it if possible. If the voltage at the back of the Alternator is less then 13 volts, then the new Alternator may be faulty. If the voltage is higher then 15 volts, then the Battery feed to the Alternator is bad and MUST be fixed. Check these voltages with the engine running but watch out for moving parts ( fans etc). If you think the battery feed to the Alternator is bad, shut the engine down and recheck the voltage at the Alternator, it should be at least the same as it is across the battery. If there is no power to the Alt when the engine is off, start at the fuse link, checking for voltage and trace back to the alt until you lose the reading. If you get no voltage at the fuse link, track it back to the battery. The voltages at the battery and Alternator should be the same or only have a difference of half a volt, any more and you need to locate and fix the bad connection. DO NOT run the Alternator without the load of the battery for extended periods as this will damage the Alternator. The Alt needs the internal resistance of the battery to function correctly. If the voltages from the battery to the alt are correct, check the regulator wiring. If memory serves, there are two small wires to the alt which are in a small plug into the alt and one thick cable which connects to a bolt on the alt. The thick cable is the battery feed, the two small cables are the regulator feeds. One small cable operates the warning lamp in the dash cluster and the other is another battery feed which gives the regulator an indication of the charge rate AT THE BATTERY so if this one is missing the regulator will also cut out. The warning lamp wire serves as an indication to the regulator that the ignition is turned on and makes the alternator charge. This lamp should be on with ignition on but engine NOT running and should go out when you start the engine. If this lamp does not light up at all, suspect a broken or missing warning lamp connection or faulty regulator.A blown warning lamp bulb will also prevent the alt from working, this is because the bulb is fed with power and is grounded at the alt through the regulator and exciter diodes, feeding the regulator with power until the engine starts, then the alternator output essentially puts power to both sides of the diodes causing the lamp to extinguish. A diode is a one way valve for electricity and the regulator is inside the alt. If you suspect a faulty alt or regulator, remove them and have them checked by an autoelectrician. Unless you know what you are doing, DO NOT attempt to disassemble the alt as you can cause catastrophic damage and have to purchase a replacement alt. You may also void any warranty by disassembling the alt.. Undertake these tests and if you have any questions, email me here: swoop@live.com.au

Thismorning lights and blower flashed battery light came on voltage dropped to low. batt.light still on truck is starting and running fine.i put a voltage meter on batt.---reads 12.9--11.0. top bolt on...


Sounds like you may need an alternator.
If the batt is ok, could be the alt going out.
A local pep boys or equivalent can check free or inexpensively...
The voltage regulator is built in to the alternator... so if you change the alternator, you change the regulator too.

Battery indicator light on.


Check the alternator at the battery terminal with a voltage guage and engine running. At the battery terminal with engine OFF voltage should be at least 12volts with engine running it should be at least 14volts. If it Not 14 volts with engine running then the alternator is UNDER charging and will trigger the light on the dash. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA.

Battery light on


It is possible that the extra demand placed upon the charging system finally blew the alternator.
You need to have the charging system checked,,or check the output yourself with a volt meter (should be around 14-15 volts) test must be done with the car running.
If the voltage reads up to 14 or 15 volts then it would indicated a short in the dash control circuit.

Elec problem between alternator and battery


Rest at ease the 14 volts will not hurt your system idealy your alt will charge at around 14 to 14,5 volts at the alternator and probably have a slightly lower charge rate at your battery at around 14 to 13.5 at the battery this is completely normal

Battery being drained on 2000 Expedition


you should remove your alternator and take it into an auto parts store and they can test it for you.
this alt had an internal regulator which can be replaced easy.
your auto parts store will be able to full feld your alt to bypass the regulator. this is how you test it to see if the regulator is bad.

you didnt say how many miles are on this truck .
most of these ford alt will last 120,000 or more
on the back side of the alt you will see the replaceable regulator.
