Ther is an ECM circuit that controls the 2.4 Optima engines alternator on and off. It probably malfunctioned. Mine did, so I traced it down in a wiring diagram. You can not use the stock alternator to make a go around circuit as the stock voltage regulator in the alternator depends on that ECM relay. I rigged a PRE-2000 year alternator off of a Sephia engine. You have to make a custom upper belt adjuster. Good luck. My setup has worked for 3 years.

1998nissan sendra doesn't charge but the battery light goes off when i start the engine when I remove bartery terminal engine stop running


A 98 still has a computer so with out power it will die my guess is corroded wires first use a multi meter and check for voltage on the terminal on the alternater it should show 13 to 14.5 volts D/C then check the battery see if it has 13 to 14 volts if yes it is charging if the altenater show 13 to 14 it is charging if the voltage is 11 to 12 or lower it is just reading the battery and you need a alternater if the aliternater is good and the battery is not charging it is either the power wire or ground you can use jumper cables to check jump from the post on the alternater to positive battery by its self if this fixes it it is the power wire if not unhook the positive and then connect the ground thermal to the engine block and see if that fixes it if not do both you will see the problem good luck

Istalled another alternater yet my battery is still going flat.


change or charge the battery and make sure you install the correct alternator capable of supplying the correct amps your car needs otherwise it wont charge correctly/ check your electrical wiring it must be grounded somewhere or the connection is incorrect thats why ur battery drains...

STALLS WHEN BATTERY CABLE IS PULLED GOOD ALTENATER AND BATTERY


If the vehicle stalls when you pull the battery cable loose from the battery the alternator can not be good because the car would stay running. You have an issue with the charging system, Possible voltage regulator which is in the alternator. Have the alternator taken of the van and tested a the parts house.

Charging system keeps killing alternaters what is the proplem


Most likely the battery was bad before replacing the alternator. Usually one can cause the other to fail. If you have a bad alternator and it's been charging the battery with low voltage for some time, the new alternator can actually "kill" the battery. If the battery is older, usually I replace it when replacing the alternator.
