Burning out 150 amp fuse in fuse center

MR2 first generation three dash lights

when these three lights come on, your alternator is not producing enough voltage to the vehicle. you should replace it. aftermarket parts are very inexpensive, but they don't last (i've had one last 4 months!)

start with a brand new toyota alternator. its pricey, but they last longer.

first you need to remove the coolant overflow bottle on the passenger side. you just have to lift up.

then remove the plug to the alternator, the 10mm nut holding a yellow wire on the alternator (goes to battery +) and finally remove the bolt on the slide bracket, and the long one through the bottom of the alternator.

remove the alternator straight upward. (takes a bit of maneuvering) or remove it your way, but this worked for me.

install the new alternator on the bracket with the long bolt, and then put the belt and slide bracket bolt back on.

clean all connections (battery post to battery terminal, battery terminal to the wire itself (it may be green. green is corrosion. strip back until you find copper and use that for a dependable connection) and finally the little wire you took off of the alternator itself has a little ring on it that should be cleaned.

reverse procedure for wiring. be sure to tension the belt properly, and youre good to go. no more 3 lights.

I have a 96 Isuzu trooper. I ran errands all day and was fine. I pulled up to park and it shut off a little smoke came from under the hood not much I noticed the main fuse was blown. I replaced and...

Here is a "legible" copy of the circuitry you are having issues with.

Based upon what I see here, if any satellite circuit had caused the problem, the associated fuse FL-2, C-19, or C-20 would have blown before the main fuse. So we can rule those circuits out, That leaves the alternator as the problem. Disconnect the wire wire from the alternator and tie it back safely from the engine block or car body. Replace the fuse. If it does not blow, the alternator is bad. If it does blow, the wiring from the main fuse to the alternator or to one of the satellite fuses is grounded.

I have a 78 mgb the head lights, turn signals, gas gage, and rpm gage, don't work. We have checked wiring and fuses but can't find anything. Would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.

Ignition switch? Battery?: Voltage correct? Battery size and type correct? (Other owners\' restore screw-ups? Kids?) Fuses correct amperage?: Power surge? Items themselves ruined/burned out? Stripped or exposed wiring--intermittent? Water vs. electrical. Dirt/contamination? Fuse box and connectors? Horn work? Starts, of course? Alternator? Alternator cables? Belt? (Hummm: Alternator--often a fine bet for small car trouble--big car, truck, or powerful car alternators, V8 or V6/6 cyl. always prove better. Small car/cheap car alternator? Old MG alternator--time to replace/re-coil? Dirty alternator? Your alternator proves worthy of crucifixion?!) Keep pluggin\'--it\'s gotta be something!: An interesting exercise in logic for Mr. Spock?!

I have a 1983 Honda Accord LX with the charging system light always on. I have had the altenator checked and it is putting out 14.89 and the battery is brand new but receives no charge from the altenator....

I had this problem about 10 years ago on my 1983 Honda Accord so I traced the wiring and found the problem to be with the cable connector that is near the battery. I removed the battery and traced the cable from the alternator to the connector that is located near the bottom of the battery. I unplugged it and checked to see if all the pins were making good contact. Two of them (the main wires from the alternator output) were deteriorated to the point they actually melted part of the plastic plug. Since I wasn't working on a new car, I simply cut the wires from the connectors, stripped about 1/2 inch of the insulation and installed a large wire nut that made a very tight connection when I tightened the wire nut with pliers. I still drive the car every day and haven't had any more trouble with that issue. It would be a good idea to check all the wires in this connector since one of the smaller ones could be broken at the connector itself.

You either have a short in the wiring or a problem with the voltage regulator. Check the plug at the alternator and move some of the wires around while the alternator is being checked to see if output changes. This will help locate a wire that is shorting out. I had a wire shorting out inside the plug and I pulled it out, stripped some insulation, and re-soldered it into the plug. Anyhoo, sure hope this helped ya, and good luck.
