Please rescue my 2.8td frontera s, the battery's not charging

She;s a frontera 2.8td. noticed the other day when i was driving that the battery level had dropped. Anyways i tested both the bettery and the alternator for voltage whilst the engine was running and they where both 12.56 volts. I,ve been told to replace a blue relay(RELAY1T) in the fuse box. this is supposed to be the charge relay or summin. I was told they do fail .Is this information i've been told true before i go splashing out on an alternator? I really need some genuine advice i can trust . HELP .

low voltage pulling by what your saying it sounds like your alternator is about to give up seeing that it cant disperse elec. to other units so its draining off the battery

change out the voltage regulator they didnt change your alternator they just rebuilt it or did nothing it sounds like

voltage regulator = adjusts the voltage
some are built on the alternator and is replaced at once with new alternator
others look like a little fin like an amp usually black in color this you will see bolted on the fender right or left this is a voltage regulator

somtimes you get a bad alternator in box when it can be new this is a chance chance cause now most parts are remand.
i still believe its your alternator you either of several things
got ripped off
got a bad alternator in replacement or
you got a bad voltage regulator by itself
looks like this

Classic frame ground issue.

To test start motor turn on head lamp and put a volt meeter between ground on engine and frame if you get any reading add a frame ground between Battery neg and body.

With out a solid Frame path of electricity is trough engine to trans to drive line then finally to the drive Axel which is grounded.

Hope this tip helps.

Where do i fill transmission fluid on a frontera?


You didn't say whether auto or manual transmission? I believe an auto fluid level must be checked using diagnostic equipment, from what I have heard, and the vehicle manufacturer seems to have a habit of fitting a level plug in the manual transmissions but require filling to be done through the breather. Apologies in advance if I have that wrong. I have experience of Vauxhall/Opel GM models but not of the Frontera so far...

Red spanner warning light


Brake Light. Make sure you are not driving with hand brake on. Check brake-fluid level. Top off brake fluid if low and make appointment to check brakes. Driving with brake light can be dangerous; deal with this soon. Call tow truck or drive carefully and slowly to shop.
ABS (antilock brake system) Light. Indicates either low brake-fluid level, stuck brake caliper or faulty ABS. Check brake fluid and make appointment to get brakes checked. Call tow truck or drive carefully and slowly to shop.
Oil Light. Either engine is very low on oil or there is no oil pressure. Pull over and turn off engine immediately. Check oil level and add oil if low. Turn engine back on to see if light has gone off. If oil light is still on, bad oil pump (no oil pressure) is likely. Call tow truck.
Check Engine Light. Car's computer senses engine problem. Difference in performance may not be noticeable, but make appointment to have car diagnosed. This usually cost around $65-$75 to do. OK to drive. If problem is serious, computer may switch to limp-home (low-power) mode and you won't have option of waiting to bring car into shop.
Air Bag Light. Get air bags checked. Problem could prevent them from activating in accident. OK to drive, but not safe in accident.
Battery Charge Light. Alternator is not charging. OK to drive, but turn off any unneeded electrical devices (radio, heater, defroster) and avoid starting engine more than necessary. Bring car into shop soon to avoid getting stranded. When alternator is not charging, battery loses charge and car stops working.
Emissions Lights (O2 sensor, EGR, check emissions). Depending on car model, these lights may indicate problem with emissions sensor or may light up at certain mileage, usually 60,000 miles (100,000 km). Get sensors checked. OK to drive. If problem exists, car might get poor gas mileage.

Please visually check your battery. If top of the battery is surrounded with blackish material, or it is used for more than two years, probably it is dead. If not, then get the specific gravity of the battery be checked. It is supposed to be in between 1.280 - 1.320 at the temperature of 40 degree Celsius. If the specific gravity is found low it needs to be re-charged for nineteen to twenty two hours at the rate of slow charging.

Sounds like you either have a draw on the battery when the car is off or you have a charging problem. Stop by auto zone or advanced and they can put there checker on it for free and see if the charging system is working o.k. make sure your engine ground wire going from your engine to the body of the car is good also.

Undervoltage consumer defective


Regarding the first problem, there is possibly an oil level sensor issue or vehicle version coding issue(both can be more fully checked at a dealership). The second problem is not uncommon. Obviously, there could be a low voltage if the vehicle sits for a long time or is not driven alot. Sounds like the ac system lost synchronization due to lack of voltage. With vehicle running, you should be able to press and hold recirc/rest or recirc/defrost buttons on ac control panel(can't quite remember which combination). Press and hold until leds start flashing, then the ac system will go through a resynch phase. If it completes this and the led's stop flashing, then it's ok. If it does not and the led's flash very quickly, this indicates an actual malfunction of ac system adjustment motors.
