Question about Dodge D150

1 Answer

Ive got a 1974 dodge pickup with a mid 80's? 315 engine. My alternator has a bat, field and grd terms. My wiring calls for 2 field terms? How do I marry them? The alternator is putting out big time and at a voltage of 13 to 18 volts.

You need to find the volt. reg. and the wires from the reg. go to the alt. the field doesn't get strait bat volt. but 13 or 14 volt isn't bad, but if your wires are rite than your reg. is bad. 18 volt is to high!!!

Diagram for altenator


alldata.com

log in and see it.
the ALT can vary by 2 factors, engine in car size, and options
some cars have HD alternator options too.
2.4 , 3.0 L or 3.8L engine?

my guess is you burned up the rear connector.
and dont know where to get one,
1: try Dodge? (throw it on counter and ask?)
2: off a wrecked dodge.
3: find an aftermarket connector> that matches.

the drawing. is online
the rear of alt.
B+ lug 12pm (up)
then the field plug
below
shows 2 pins.
the bottom of plug socket, has a large cast tab.
feed pin is 2pm clocked loc.
and other side top is PCM reg side. 7pm clocked.

wire DG/O (darkgreen-orange) goes to ASD relay(FEED?)
wire DG goes to PCM (reg)

that is all there is , online FSM.
feed is the power feed to the field coil.
the other side is the PCM regulator side of the field coil.
the PCM controls the Alternator full time.

Loss of power


stock car YJ ? , or all hacked up. (old cars get hacked)
2.5 or 4.0 liter engine? still have a real jeep alternator not upgraded?

loss of electrical power (first rule, we never need to guess.!!!)
not with a voltmeter. (tool that costs $20 )
alternator good (by what means, autozoned?) ( we can find out one car)
but low on gauge. what gauge in dash voltmeter.? sure...
i think you car has no charge lamp only the dash VM.

own an volt meter? a DMM? hand volt meter?

1: if the alternator charge lamp is stuck on driving.
2: is battery voltage at 13.3 to 15vdc with engine at 800 RPM idling
alternator belt not slipping, for sure.....???
if the battery voltage is near 12.5v and falling running that is
an Alternator system failure, note i said, system. !!!

this is first. if we get to here. we can find the real cause.
test 3:
is the charge lamp on keyon, and goes out running?
make sure the big fuse for the alternator in the engine bay fuse
box is not blown, 50amp?

I have no 95 FSM and my online source sucks for 95

Alternator dead: (alt good)
1: belt slipping . engine at 300rpm, nah.
2: fuse blown, the big one. (engine bay fuse box)
3: ;wrong alternator, there are many, most others will fail, even good ones.......
4: alternator ground bad. (end to end, to battery minus)
5: bad wiring to same. bad connections, any to battery or alt.
6: some jeeps the PCM has the field regulator, see link below.
ECU pin 20 , is field pin, it is on 95, 4.0L (engine not stated)

is the CEL lamp on, and throwing code 41 DTC?, alt, field errors?

the alt has 4 pins, battery, field,ground and voltage sense.
The reg is in the PCM. and if bad is a bad $3 transistor..
see same form for fix for that issue..

i think this is same as your. 1996 is big change year.
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/1993-wrangler-pcm-ecu-ecm-pin-out-diagram-1170004/


you can test the alt, PCM wire pulled !, by full fielding the alt.
grounding the field term, no wires on field pin of alt.
see FSM for details on that.
The PCM modulates the field pin to control charge at all times.

The alternator i bought has posts on the back side instead of plugs. there are four each says, BAT, GND, STA, and FLO. what connects to what? its half the price as the one with easy plugs, so if i can i...


BAT attaches to the battery charging wire. GRD is ground wire. STA is stator. FLO is probably FLD or field wire connection. It would help immensely if i knew what year and model you were working on. I imagine it is a 300 straight six possibly in a ford f150 or bronco.

I have a 2000 Dodge grand caravan, and the battery won't charge while the car is running, it just keeps using the battery until its dead. We have replaced the computer, and had the alternator and battery...


Hello allyssiandra.
The green wire leading to the alternator is grounded by the computer to complete the field circuit.
The dark green/orange wire is power supply to the field circuit fed by the auto shutdown relay.
The large output wire out of the stator in the alternator should have battery voltage on it at all times. Test to verify this power at the alternator terminal. There is a fusible link in this feed wire that could have went open circuit.
To test the system manually ground the green wire with the engine running. This is called a full field test. This will put the alternator in full output. If it doesn't, apply positive battery power to the dark green/orange wire with the engine running. This bypasses the auto shut down relay.
Hook up wires at the alternator before starting the engine for safety sake.
Do this much and report back here to me and I will help with the next step in repair.

I puled off my old alternator and forgot to put


So, you have an integral regulator on your alternator.... so you have to connect the output of the regulator to your battery. You also have to connect between the regulator and the alternator. Hmmmmm how to describe....
using your descriptions of wires and prongs.....
Connect Wire Color to Prong

Yellow (w/wht dot) A+
White (w/blk tracer) STA
Black (w/orange tracer) Bat (alt output)
Ground wire Grd
Orange (w/Lt.Blue) F (field)
If battery was connected, the Black with orange tracer wire would have +12 Volts on it at all times

Put a new alternator in 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee engine light on


well , the ECU runs the alternator. (DG wire "dark green")
the alternator field is controlled 100% by PCM reg , inside PCM.
so..... if the running engine has 13.3, to 15vdc the alt is working
if lower, its not. (rpm on engine 800 or more)

not scanning the PCM a the CEL glow, you missed the boat.
why not scan it. see why the PCM is upset (DTC errors stored)

see the 2 lower pins below , those go to PCM.
in theory if the field in the old BAD ALT, was shorted.
that could in fact, burn up the PCM regulator.
shorting outputs of PCM , does that in most cases.
im the poor sod that fixes PCM's.so....
