It's on the lower passenger side front of the engine, tucked under the side. When you stand in front of the car and look down the front of the motor where the belts are, it's driven by the lower, leftmost pulley. The easiest way to remove it is to raise the car up and remove the sway bar, and take it out from the bottom. To remove it from the top, you'll have to take the radiator out and most of the plumbing up top, and it adds a lot of work. Be careful since there are a few small wire connections on the back of the alternator. Three wires in total - don't miss one or you'll yank the wire out of it's connector and screw yourself.

Battery light on dash flases on 2001 ford expedition

alternator is going bad or just the regulator circuit to keep output constant is going bad. if alternator is the problem, first check for oxidation on cables, if they are ok probably the brushes inside alternator are worned out. you need a new alternator or need it to be fixed. if regulator is bad you need a new regulator or the broken component to be fixed. either ways this must be an easy fix. 1 hour job.

Battery and alternator is good,but the break light,srs air bag light and the battery light stay on all the time and the car will go dead while in motion. what could be the problem?

Your alternator cant be good if all those dash lights are on then the alternator is bad, reoplace it and make sure the battery is tested, a bad battery can and will destroy a new alternator, also make sure the connections at the rear of the alternator are good, the reason for car dieing in motion is due to the battery draining down and theres not enough voltage to keep ecletrical components going, you must have a bad connection at alternator or alternator is bad. and the last thing to check would be the alt fuse which should be located near the postive battery terminal. good luck.

I have a '88' Chrysler LeBaron. I have replace 3 alternators. Something keeps killing the alternators. I want to check if the voltage regulator is working. Could it kill the alternators? And where is it...

the voltage regulator on that old of a chrysler should still be internal (inside the alternator). it could be just bad alternators, i've ran into many endless amounts of defective alternators. the most was 7 in a row on one vehicle from two different parts suppliers. otherwise it could be bad wiring, loose connections, burnt contacts, or a bad short.

Alternator fuse location

fuse will be located in the engine compartment if it has one. mine was doing the same think but it was a bad ground wire. if you want to test this you can simply use a jumper cable and attach it to the negative battery terminal. then to the engine block. it should start charging if that was the problem

Where is the Alternator located in a 1997 Lexus LS 400

If the car ran and got you home after a jump start I doubt the alternator is bad. Check your battery. And remember never ever disconnect the battery cable with the engine running.

I had my battery changed this morning at Autozone because they said it was low. The past couple days it was not starting right. after I got it changed, I started home and the car was idioled very low when...

Have your charging system checked,your voltage regulator could be bad and the regulator is located inside the Alternator. If the regulator is not charging at least 13.9 volts , This means it is most likely that it is bad. Replace the alternator to fix the problem correctly.
