Intermitant charging 10 to 14 volts with check engine light on


Regulator is in the alternator. Test the output terminal (where the wire bolts on) on the back of the alternator to see if the voltage is right. If not, get a new one, they're cheap. (relatively speaking - $50-$200) P.S. car must be running, watch out for those belts!

There is a ground some were that is causeing the battery not to charge put new selinoid ,new battery,alternater,new key lock cylender check wirers fuses relay switches and battery still wont charge


It sounds like you have done a whole lot of replacing and not much "diagnosing". Did you chech for battery voltage at the alternator? There should be battey voltage at the large Black/Orange wire that is on the B+ terminal of the alternator. This wire should have voltage all the time. If there is no battery voltage, you most likely have a burned fusible link at the starter relay area.
There should also be voltage at the "S" terminal with the ignition on. If there is no voltage, then check for voltage at the "S" terminal of the voltage regulator. If there is no voltage at the "S" terminal on the voltage regulator then check the "I" terminal on the regulator for voltage.

NOTE: The voltage on the "S" terminal should be 1/2 that of the voltage on the "I" terminal.

If there is voltage on the "I" terminal, make sure your voltage regulator is grounded properly to the fender and retest to see if it is charging the battery. If it is still not charging, disconnect the regulator connector and connect a jumper between the "A" and "F" terminals of the connector. Start the engine. The alternator should now be charging the battery at high voltage (usually over 15 volts) If it does, replace your voltage regulator. If it does not, then you need to check your wiring between the voltage regulator and the alternator.

I have a 1984 dodge D150, not charging, battery is good,charges with charger\r\ntruck starts and runs pretty good,but is running off of battery, NEW altenater,regulator,and belts belts are tight,replaced...


The first thing you need to do is stop wasting your money by replacing parts. Then get a volt-ohm meter and a test light to test the circuits between the battery, the alternator, the ignition switch, the starter relay and the voltage regulator. (a.k.a. Charging System Circuits)

To start, the "B+" or "BATT" terminal on the alternator (large black wire) MUST have a solid, direct connection to the battery. Check for the proper voltage here. Then, the red wire on the alternator at the "F2" terminal should be HOT at all times. If not, you probably still have a bad fuse link that you missed. The "F1" terminal on the alternator (Light Green wire) is known as your "FIELD" wire. It comes from the "IG" terminal at the voltage regulator. It should be hot any time the key is in the ON position. If not, your voltage regulator is not working or your ignition switch is not providing power to the regulator. Finally, The "F" terminal (Red wire) at the regulator should be hot any time the ignition switch is in the ON position. This actually gets it's power from the starter relay, which gets its power from the ignition switch.

Battery light is on...alternator showing low voltage


I never condem an altenater till I have the battery at full voltage.Make sure the battery hasa good 30 minute slow charge then load test it.If it is good most likely bad altenater.

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.

Bought new alternator and installed it and still cuts off if not connected to jumper cables???


its probly not charging or you might want to test the battery might be bad also did you have the old altenator tested check for power to voltage regulator at the alt to see if there is power presnt otherwise it will never charge without that power wire hot with key on engine off.

I need a printable diagram for replacing an altenater on a 1994 ford mini-van. Does anyone know a website to find one for free?


Removal
  1. Disconnect battery ground cable (14301) .
  1. Remove snow/ice shield.
  1. Remove engine air cleaner intake tube (9A624) .
  1. Disconnect the generator voltage regulator wiring (14305) to the voltage regulator.
  1. Remove wiring connector bracket.
  1. Loosen the drive belt tensioner (6B209) and remove the drive belt .
  1. Remove the bolts holding the voltage regulator to the generator bracket (10A313) .
  1. Remove the voltage regulator from the generator bracket .
Installation
  1. Position the voltage regulator on the generator bracket .
  1. Install the bolts and tighten to 40-55 Nm (30-40 ft-lb).
  1. Install the drive belt over the generator pulley .
  1. Adjust the drive belt tensioner as outlined in Section 03-05 .
  1. Connect generator voltage regulator wiring to the voltage regulator. Tighten generator Battery Positive Voltage (B+) wire attaching nut to 9-12 Nm (6.5-9 ft-lb).
  1. Install wiring connector bracket.
  1. Install engine air cleaner intake tube .
  1. Install snow/ice shield. NOTE: When the battery is disconnected and reconnected, some abnormal drive symptoms may occur while the powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) relearns its adaptive strategy. The vehicle may need to be driven 10 miles or more for powertrain control module to relearn the strategy.
