Hi and welcome to FixYa,

On most versions, the output of the voltage regulator (white wire) is directly feed to the battery's + terminal through the main 30 Amps fuse in the starter relay. However, the regulator needs a switched +12 (usually brown wire) to go active which is fed fron the IGN switch. The other wires of the regulator are 3 yellow wires from the stator and a black / yellow to ground.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

My predator 500 won't start won't turn over lights don't come on I jumped it and it came on started ran for a few then died now won't do anything what should I check


the battery would be a good place to start with
have a load test done to check for bad cell/s
next have the charging system checked
the indications are insufficient [power from the battery to start ( starts from a jump) and stops running after starting ( insufficient current being generated to supply the ignition circuit ) check for loose /dirty battery terminals and ground points

After filling gas tank car wont start what could be problem?


If car was running normally just before filling tank, most likely fuel pump. If car is gas petrol and not diesel, to test bad fuel pump spray starting fluid in air filter box. If car starts and immediately stops is bad pump. If car still dosent start even with starting fluid be several possibilities; bad battery, starter, alternator, ignotion switch / key tumbler, or bad fuses. Battery, starter, alternator can be tested for free if can get to auto parts store, or aftermarket products like from harbor freight. If those still good check related fuses. If all good then to ignition switch problem which unless you are fully competent mechanic needs to be done by a professional

Bulldozer quit running now it wont turn over or do anything


check your ground on your starter/starter relay/ground from battery, possibly even a bad start key/switch. Are all your "kill" switches engaged (clutch pedal/brake/seat/door, etc). Since I dont know the model of your bulldozer I am just suggesting the basics. Good Luck

I have an 04 envoy with 108,000 miles runs strong but some issues. the car will try and die out and will recover but a few minutes later it will in fact die out! my key will get stuck in the ignition....


Your problem is not with the ignition key tumbler, but rather the ignition switch. This a common failure item with the Envoy. For tips on changing the switch, visit www.trailvoy.com and do a search on ignition switch.

Click on the link.
The diagram shows generator with internal voltage regulator and with external voltage regulator, at the moment, I don't know which one you have?
The bat terminal at the generator should be hot even with the key off, is it, use a test light. If no voltage either the fusible link is faulty or the wiring circuit to battery +. You can see fusible links in diagram.
Could be other issues, the generator probably needs excite voltage or it won't work. The excite voltage comes from charge indicator circuit. Does the charge lamp on the dash work?

1997 jaguar xj6 passenger side engine bay fuse box fuse # 10 IGN control (low current) 5 amp blows as soon as turn the key then the battery drains and car dies what is happening and how do i fix it. Also...


I think your thumbler is shorting and blowing the fuse..; replace the tumbler..

your ignition is wired to the tumbler.. if thats shorting it will explain your issues.

Hi, My Kipor 6700TA wont start. Battery died or fuel issue?


It sounds like your unit may not be charging the battery properly.

Try charging the battery and see if it responds properly. If it does, then check the charging circuit. This OFTEN involves a rectifier module which is usually about 1 inch square with four leads. OFTEN there is a fuse, sometimes within the generator housing (stupid place) which protects the low voltage winding.

Here is a hint: Most of these engines have a compression release on the top that one can press then crank up to speed and release. This takes much less effort on the battery. Some have a panel held by bolts. I put hinges on mine for easy access.

REMEMBER the battery is being drained WHILE the unit is running to hold the fuel solenoid open... so if charging isn't working the battery will die.

Test: You should see about 13.75 to 14 volts across the battery when properly being charged while running.
