Question about 1999 Mercury Cougar
1999 ford cougar alternator putting out reduced voltage at 4000 rpm and over. Under 4000rpm fine. Voltage up to 4000 rpm about 14.5 volts. Over 4000 rpm it starts to drop and can go as low as 11.5 volts. Any ideas.

The voltage regulator is a part of the alternator.If you are having pulsating issues then look for grounding issues like a corrided eyelet or loose grounding bolts.

now days all voltage regulators are incorporated into the alternator. so if you have charging problems it is more then likely the alternator is bad, or needs a rebuild. good-day !
