The regulator inside the alt. is bad. Replace the alternator.
When you unplug the the small plug youre running on battery. If you plug it in you can start a fire or blowup the battery.

Distributor not firing on a 92 tercel


Don''t know who or how this check was done but should compare resistance between terminals on coil with another small difference was my problem 1991 tercel you can also hook 12v batt. pos. to +term.on coil with sparkplug and wire conn. directly to coil grounding outside of plug to neg.term. of batt. now connect wire to -on coil and momentarily touch to batt. - you should get spark across gap of plug .This will determine for yourself if coil is indeed good or bad. I was very surprised another coil from junkyard cured problem!!!

I need the wiring diagram. I'am doing rewire on a 66 Chevy truck to a one wire hook up. I have anew pigtail plug with the excitor wire anda short wire lable alt barttery with a1/4 lug on it. Do you puy...


The red wire goes to the lug on the back of the alternator (B+ connection) You need to run another wire from that terminal directly to the battery. Normally, the remainder of your power accessories will be attached to the starter main terminal but you could run that from the battery as well since that's the other end of the same wire. I wouldn't use the alternator terminal for that only because the insulator on the terminal could overheat and melt if overloaded for any reason. In any case, everything except the wire between the battery and alternator should pass through the ignition switch so it's all off when the key is off.

Gauge showing low output alt only 1yr old wondering if it could be regulator or batt or wiring


if you have access to a digital multimeter, connect the meter (set to volts) across positive and neg. terminal of the battery, should read roughly 12.6 volts, close to 10 volts, battery may be going out, also test the alt output, disconnect neg term and place negative lead to battery neg post and positive lead to neg battery cable (make sure meter is set to amps) should read near the rating, if both those, then you'd want to do a resistance test, (set meter to Ohms) disconnect battery and connect meter neg to either pos cable terminal or where the pos cable connects to the alt and connect positive lead to opposite of neg, should read next to 0, the check resistance of the ground by connecting meter between batt neg cable and body of alt.

Installed a new alt- not getting any power to the battery,where does the cable go from the alt? where is the voltage regulator?


The "Batt" wire probably goes to the starter solenoid or starter relay. The wire is most likely corroded off or it's making a poor connection. Some vehicle route the power directly to the battery, look for a fuseable link in the wire. Use a test light too see if you have power on both sides of the fuseable link. There should be power at the "Batt" terminal of the Alt at all times, if not start tracing the wire back to the battery. The voltage regulator is built into the Alt. Hopefully this helps.
