You can call a parts store to see if this car/ altenator has a seperate voltage regulator. This is the part that fields the altenator to send out the voltage from the altenator. If it is built into the altenator you have to pull out the altenator to have it checked. I have bought new parts that were bad from the beginning. Very frustrating.

there are many ways to make it stop doing 13.3v to 15vdc running,
lots. ill list them all..
the 2 stated. in blue above. and.
1: bad dash lamp this lamp boot staps the field current or the alternator is born dead. so is it dead key on, , yes, BINGO.

2: bad alt ground, or starter top bolt , ground to battery bad or loose.
3: bad wires to the rear of alt. all 3.
4: bad battery cables. (or just corroded ends or conn. wrong)!!!

here is the drawing.
IS the sense wire is dead, not 12vdc.???

the reg inside can shut the ALT down for.
over voltage
over current.
or if it THINKS(sic) that the batter internal resistances is too high. for ANY REASON what so ever. it will shut down
these protections prevents the ALt. from blowing expensive electronics (all of it) to kingdom come. $$$$$

its a feature.

Not charging


First tell me why you don't think it's charging.
Because of the voltage reading you are getting at the battery terminals? The range you want is between 13.6v to 14.2v. The higher the voltage the lower the amps. and true the other way, the lower the voltage the higher the amps. If you get a reading of 13.6v or lower, the alt is nearing or at max output. An alt can only run at maximum for around fifteen minutes and it will start slinging solder from overheating. It's a good indication the battery is either totally dead or junk. Charging above 14.2 the alternater is running wide open and is only putting out high volts which will cause the battery to boil , in turn destroying it. This is a bad alternater. All alternaters have integrated voltage regulater with the exception of ver few of the earlier ones. You cannot test an alternater by removing a battery cable to see if the engine keeps running without taking great risk of damaging the alt, regulator. So tell me why you feel it isn't charging. Remember an alt is not made to charge dead batteries. Their sole function is to maintain the battery charge. Without a battery, the alt won't last 10 seconds.
Hope to hear from you and good luck.

Elec problem between alternator and battery


Rest at ease the 14 volts will not hurt your system idealy your alt will charge at around 14 to 14,5 volts at the alternator and probably have a slightly lower charge rate at your battery at around 14 to 13.5 at the battery this is completely normal
