    The charges at 100% I checked the alternator option on the charger and it showed zero. The bike will run until battery is at 12%. I will trace the positve line for fuses and location of alternator. It is on an old trike.



    Thanks,

    Check the wiring harness. Did a wire come unplugged? Are all wires clean and with solid connections? Any abraded or pinched wires?

    The bike has an alternator, no generator. Minor detail. Unsure of location. 20 years have passed since I worked on that bike. Possibly helpfull > Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.

    I looked for an on-line repair manual bub the best I could find is a 1996 manual in German and another in ???? Likely it will show a photo of the location. It is a free PDF download and you can delete it if no joy is found. http://www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-man... Most of the manuals are in English but some are not. There is no way to be sure without doing the download.

1998 ford escort altinator two bolt or three bolt? engine light is on brand new battery and the battery light is on . car just died when driving waited 7mins and it started .is it the altinator


check with volt meter. 12 volts with engine off. Should be 14 volts with engine running if alternator is working.
First, clean battery posts and cable ends. Then check owner manual for fuse locations and blown fuses. There is a large 100 amp fuse in box under hood.

Is the battery lamp lit on the dash?

Looks like 3 bolts. please rate when done

New battery, tight connections, start the bike up and dies approx. 10-15 min. later. will not turn over the battery is dead, while driving the lights become very dim before the bike dies. it is a 1997...


Hello James
Hearing your problem strikes right at me. My old Jeep Cherokee had the same problem. You have two possible problems, alternator and regulator. Luckily for you, both can be taken to any good sized auto parts store and tested for free:) The reason it dies is that the bike uses electricity to generate sparks at the spark plugs, if you don't have something to resupply the battery(ie:alternator) then it will slowly die(also causing the lights to dim more and more). The alternator could not be charging the battery, or the regulator could be not allowing the alternator to charge the battery.Taking the out could become quite difficult, my GoldWing makes it extremely hard, but the rest of the job should be easy.



Hope this helps
-Chris

ok let's try to help you on this one install a new fuse but remove the cable that runs from the generator to the battery if the fuse won't blow you have a bad alternator or the wire is making contact with the metal on the alternator if yo have a voltmeter you can check this cable using your meter in ohms and with the battery cable disconnected
