Many cars and bikes die immediately even if the charging system is working perfectly when you do that. If you want to know if your charging system is working, put a voltmeter on your battery. It should read a little over 12v before you start the bike and around 14v while charging. If you rev to 3-4000 rpm and are still getting a reading less than 13v something is wrong.

make sure the ign.warning light comes on when ign on no engine running, i think the alt, gets its field current through the warning light bulb, also there is a anti interferance capacitor fixed to the o/s inner wing which can go s/c. check the large brown wire on the alt. is it batt pos? there is a through bulkhead power stud on the o/s that burns and goes o/c and removes the batt. supply from the alt.

Chevy venture draining battery


The alternator is out. The ONLY time your vehicle uses battery power (while the engine is turning) is during start up. After that the alternator runs the car.

With the car running put a volt meter on the alternator. Red lead on the big nut on back side if alt. Black lead on the neg batt cable or a good body ground. Voltage should be around 14.5v DC.
Then still with engine running, red lead to batt postive, black lead to batt neg. Voltage should read the same. 14.5v DC
If not, the alt. Is bad

Alternator is not charging the battery. The battery has been tested & will hold a charge. The alternator has been tested and is also good putting out 75 amps. I've checked the connections, all appear...


thats not always a great way to diagnose alternator problems if you have alot of electrical components on your vehicle the alt will not run the vehicle,also the alt. is not going to charge your batt. its job is to maintain your batteries life, if you do not have a load tester to test your batt. have some one at a autoparts help you most are free of charge to check.. goodluck

Alternator f-150


replace the link between the alternator and the positive side of the battery. This is a fusable link and sometimes can cause this problem this would be the easy fix and is hard to test

Want hold a charge


get a test light and a schematic. unplug stator plug.start bike ,make sure battery has full charge. test each pin on connector that is attatched to the 3 yellow wires.should light on each pin. if all good check for burn marks around connectors, front & back sides, and on wires. if no power on yellow wires, stator problem. if power, plug connector together, now test for voltage in wires on the voltage regulator side of the connector, to see if the voltage is making it through the connector.if there is power to volt. regulator,test w/ multi meter across battery leads to see if there is charging voltage to battery,approximately 13-15 volts. if only battery voltage(12.2 or less) while bike is running,voltage regulator is no good.if charging good, but bike wont start after prolonged sitting(say overnight) a system amp draw test is needed to see if something is staying powered up while bike is not running, drawing down battery.
