I would check the regulator/rectifier. also, make sure all connectors are good and that wires aren't shortng out. check the wires for insulation breakdown or cracks.

Pucrchased 2001 ultra classic. Battery would not stay charged. Replaced battery and still would not keep charge. Replaced ststor and voltage regulator. Rode 750 miles and stator went out. What would c


Hi Ed, perform the following tests:
1. Fill acid type batteries to proper levels.
2. Charge battery overnight at 1-2 amps you need 12.5 volts or better after charging.
3. Hook up battery positive cable, then with your multimeter on the milliamp scale connect one lead to the negative battery post and the other lead to the ground cable. Meter should read 3 milliamps or less, 10 milliamps with a radio, 15 milliamps with radio and CB. If your meter reads higher you need to isolate the circuit by pulling fuses and circuit breakers one at a time and observe meter for drop in aprerage then get out your test light and track down the short in that circuit.
3. Make sure all connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at BOTH ends.
4. Hook up volt meter to battery and start engine, if meter falls below 9.5 v while cranking replace battery.
5. With engine running at 3600 RPM battery should read 14.3-14.7 volts if not continue tests.
6. Unplug voltage regulator from alternator at crankcase by front of primary cover.
7. To test voltage regulator go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8EjV0IjW9Q
8. With ohm meter, one lead grounded, touch alternator pin meter should read infinity, if not replace stator.
9. With ohm meter, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read 0.1 to 0.2 ohms on 1989 and later models. 0.2 to 0.4 ohms 1988 and earlier models, if not replace stator.
10. With volt meter set on AC scale, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read
16 to 20 volts AC for every 1000 RPM'S 1989 and later and 19 to 26 volts AC for every 1000 RPMS. If not replace rotor.

You can damage electrical components if you do not run the correct voltage battery. If your battery is below 12 volts replace it. If you take off the seat you can easily test the stator with a volt meter. Find the stator plug with three yellow wires. You should have continuity between any combination of the yellow wires. You should have no continuity between any of the yellow wires and ground. That is the test of a good stator. If your bike is still losing charge after those checks , you are probably looking at a new regulator/rectifier.

sounds like your starter motor is at fault.I have had this problem before and found the starter was draining the battery due to a short in the windings of the motor.

It's your stator failing, these bikes are notorious for bad stators. A failing stator means the bike can't produce the electricity it needs to run, and the bike is running on the battery only. Replace the stator and make sure your battery is fully charged and you will be good to go.

My question is- my 2001 Mitsubishi Galant has the anti-theft system. The battery went down because it hasn't been driven in a couple of weeks. I can boost it off & drive it for just a mile or so &...


Usually if it is the anti theft system it should not start with a boost, I would suggest first check the basics have the altenator tested with a voltmeter the volts should read 13.5 to 14.5 if not you probbably have a bad altenator, loose belt, or bad or loose battery connections. Since the battery went completly dead I would suggest having it recharged and tested.

Battery will not keep a charge.


Get a 2 amp charger and charge the battery fo 3 hours or so. While the battery is charging,check the fuses and check the wiring harness connections between the flywheel and the battery.

Start the bike and rev it up. Use a DC voltmeter to check the battery voltage while running. The voltmeter should read 14+ volts. If not then there may be a problem with the stator.

Pleas rate this solution. Thanks!

Ford Winstar ain't startin'


Yes the alternator you installed is fried. Take it back and then when you put the new one in disconnect the battery first before installing. If the battery is connected while installing it will ALWAYS fry the alternator. Most parts guys don't tell you that so live and learn. This should help.
