Question about Volkswagen Beetle
I put a new generator and voltage regulator on my VW but it keeps running my battery down then the car won't start. Do you suppose I messed up the regulator while installing? I polorized it according to the instructions. My generator light stays on all the time when running. I believe I have it wired right according to the manual. Where should I start looking?
Loud your battery again and see if ti keep running it down--if yes check the battery loading size it suppose to be around 12-13.
less then 9-10 in most cases it's the alternator cause another thing is your battery could be out of work
