Check alternator voltage, in back of alternator, on the thick wire that is bolted to the stud, with engine running should have no less then 13 volts, if you do, then we know for sure alternator is good, check for bad fuse link at starter solenoid, depending which one you have, on starter on on the fender on passenger side, fuse links most of the time will have a small tab on the wire it self, pull gently on wire if it feels like a rubber band, bad fuse link, also if you can't find it, you could also run a new wire (thick 6 gaug) from alternator to battery.

F350 2004 6.0 brand new alternator not charging new batteries , battery light stays on , what could I be missing?


Just cause its a new alternator does mean it should work. I would check the charge when running cause it could just be a bad alternator.

Installing alternator helps??


the belt tensioner should have a slot where you can fit either a 3/8 or 1/2 drive ratchet in it to pry on it..they make a special tool to fit in it.. but a ratchet will work most of the time.

Vehicle: '97 Nissan PU, alternator


ok we have four connections at the alternator( black wire is ground) (white with blue positive direct from the battery)
and two wires connector in the regulator(yellow with black that goes to charge indicator the red light and goes to fuse 7 10a fuse block inside) the blue with yellow goes to fuse 65- 7.5a in the left fron engine comparment fuse box))#1 check for ground at the black wire= #2 check for positive at the white with blue wire (allwas with power) this wire is protected with 100a fuse is in the left front engine comparment fuse box,
remenber== check the 100a fuse
and the two fuses that protect the regulator.
when you turn the ignition switch to the on position power goes to the alternator by the yellow black wire and activate
the alternator to work.

84 ford F350 6.9 diesel charging system not charging batterys new alt,New voltage regulator, new positive and negative wires,


look for a fusible link out. You need to check for output on the alternator that you installed. make sure the batteries are fully charged before that, otherwise its not going to read right. start from the source. also, you can disconnect the batteries from the sys and do a continuity check on the wires in the loom, so you can see if current has a path, or if you have an open circuit. hope this helps

2001 F350 Charging problems


actually the only thing i can recomend is to have the alternator replace again for warranty and before starting the truck charge the batteries very well with a baterie charger make sure to charge them individually because with a low batterie the alternator has to put a lot of load and might burnt again
specially with dual batterie.
