Question about 1993 Volkswagen Fox
These vehicles suffer a problem with fuse box near the battery ,they use alloy fuses that have a nut either side and the supply cable connections have a habit of burning with age ,now if its not charging then the chances are its these connections ,check them out .Now as a measure to make it work run a wire direct from positive battery terminal to the
large terminal on the back of the alternator ,now start engine and run at 1500rpm ,disconnect the negative battery terminal and engine should keep running ,if it stops then its not charging then remove the regulator on the back of the alternator as its a bosch one with two screws on and check the brushes and the commutator as you havent stated weither its a reconditioned unit or a scrapyard dodgy one ,taking the neg battery terminal off with engine running will tell you as to if its charging or not .
