Seems like i saw a vidio from a tec called altenator man,in which he mentioned
a regulater that limited it to 15 amps,but that is probably the max.
if your regulator is built in you will need new suggested.

With a car that old its possible the gauge is off but to be sure you can go to autozone or pepboys im pretty sure they will test the charging system for free . or if you have a volt meter you can check it yourself it should be 14-14.8 with the car running anything higher than 14.8 is overcharging . if it is overcharging you will need an alternator for sure and if the battery is over 3 years old its best to replace that too so you dont break down in the near future because overcharging cooks the battery so whatever life it has left has been cut hope this helps

Hi Danny, I'm Al the owner of Big A's Auto Repair
Danny, it's possible the over charging my have blown some fuses. Check all the fuses and replace the ones if any blew. NOTE: If the problem you having is the engine will not turn over then make sure the overcharging did not melt the starter or damage the battery. For further assistance go to my website. Have an awesome day Danny.

Alternator overcharging

I would need to know what year the Jeep is to comment on the overcharging problem as well as the code 37 problem.
There could be a voltage regulator on the alternator, or it could be built into the engine computer.

Overcharge refrigerant

The low side will not tell you if the system is overcharged or not. You would need a gauge hooked up to the high side to know that.
It could be a relay, ac clutch, or pressure switch problem.
35 - 45 psi on the low side is normal

Lost pwr for takeoff, and gauges all going haywire and overcharging battery

Did the overcharge or voltage regulator problem go away with the new ECM in it? If so the transmission code.. (turbine speed sensor input) code is probably another problem that the Jeep has.. and the ECM will not fix that, but the input speed sensor that it may need is not very expensive.

I am not sure why i am not getting cold air in my grand cherokee 1996 . the conpresor seen to be working. it runs and stop every 30 to 45 seconds

system may be overcharged or air has leaked into the system. fined a gauge set and test the system also add some leak detector. U may need to replace the shrader valves bleed the system and recharge to get the cold air flowing again.

My 2001 jeep cherokee is blowing hot air when the ac is on

You need to hookup a manifold gauge set to the low and high side of the A/C and see the pressures. to accurately tell what's going on. overcharged,undercharged. leaking, none the less it should be evacuated,vacuumed, checked for leaks and recharged.

1991 jeep wrangler: alternator overcharging

It sounds as the voltage regulator which is built into the back of the alternator has stuck. Occaisionally this even happens on new ones. Would suggest taking the alternator back as it shoud be under warranty.

Replaced compressor and still having problems

oil needs to be in the system to lubricate the compressor. Special oil that can be found at the parts store. The oil needs to be put in before the system is charged with freon.
