Question about 1990 Toyota Corolla
I have a bran-new alternator. But my car still won't run on it, draining my battery. Why would this happen with a good alternator?
CHECK ALTERNATOR FUSE + FUSE LINK TO MAIN BATTERY FEED WIRE.MAKE SURE YOUR BATTERY CABLES IN GOOD SHAPE.IF THEY ARE OLD REPLACE THEM.BECAUSE THEY WILL CAUSE HIGH RESISTANCE IN CIRCUIT CAUSE CHARGING PROBLEMS. AND CHECK ALTERNATOR POSITIVE WIRE AND VOLTAGE REGULATOR WIRE.MAKE SURE DRIVE BELT NO SLIPPING.ALSO MAKE SURE YOUR BATTERY IS 12.5 VOLTS.IF BATTERY IS WEAK ALTERNATOR WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CHARGE IT.IT WOULD BE LIKE A BUCKET WITH LARGE HOLE IN IT.KEEP FILLING IT WITH WATER IT WILL LEAK OUT.IT WONT HOLD NONE.
