Ok, you failed to tell me what year and model we're talking about here so my information will be more generalized.

First, test the output of you charging system at the battery. The battery must be fully charged for this test. Make sure all connections are tight and clean. You'll need a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) to do the test. Connect the red meter lead to the positive post, the black lead to the negative post. Put the meter function switch in "DC VOLTS< 20 Volts or greater scale. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. You should read 14.5-15.0 volts at the battery.

To test the stator, follow the wires from the regulator down to the engne case and where the connector where they plug in. Unplug the connector and inspect the metal contacts inside the engine case or connector on the stator side. Set you meter function switch to AC VOLTS> 25 Volts or greater. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. Touch each metal contact in the engine side of the connector with a test meter lead. You should read 25 volt AC or better.

If the stator test good, replace your regulator. make sure the ground is good on the regulator.

Good Luck
Steve

My 02 jeep liberty sport 3.7 liter v6 i had my compresser that runs the air conditioning an such fixed.since then my dash communications went crazy. Then stopped working completely. So i cant see my gas...


Sounds odd . One has nothing to do with the other . First off try checking battery connections . Make sure you have clean and tight connections and that nothing was left disconnected or lose . Next I would check all your fuses Under hood and under dash .

Mower runs new battery down then wont start again unless jumped.


Sounds like you have a problem with a regulator. Hard to tell without knowing what model of mower you own. You must remember that whatever is attached to your battery charges it while the motor is running. If the battery does not receive that needed charge, running the motor will certainly drain your battery.

My samsung rant wont charge. it charged yesterday but today after plugging it into the charger the Samsung name lights up and then it says "low battery please charge" but it wont charge, i did drop it in...


Phone not charging.
Hello, when a phone does not charge, it means that the phone charger or the port at which the charger is inserted in the phone is faulty.

Might be due to dust or dirt. You can Clean charging port on the phone with a brush and alcohol to remove dirt.

After cleaning it,if still not charging, you can test charger with another phone to be sure if the charger is working. And if charger works with another phone,that means the charging port on the phone is faulty and will need to replaced.

Take care.

Wont start


you obviously , have a drain in the system, could be a simple as the glove box light staying on, otherwise, run you car down to the mechanics and ask him just to check your alternator is working, he shouldn't charge you to do that. all the best and good luck

Replaced coils, will idle,but wont stay running under load, also have to keep charging battery


because the bike is so new i wouldnt suspect the stator i would invest in a battery, a good battery is crucial for bikes. once you get a good battery in it check the voltage at the terminals when the bike is running(you should see around 13 to 14 volts). you can have the battery load tested at a batteries plus or an auto part store so you dont waste your money, but once you kill a bike battery there pretty much junk. the stators in motorcycles barely put out enough power to run the bike and pretty much trickle charge the battery. they rely on the battery to pick up the slack. get a battery from walmart there cheap and ive had one in my bike for two years and its fine, stay away from the over priced ones they dont do anything but slim down your wallet.
