Could be either the stator, regulator, or a battery thats just old and won't hold a charge, testing solutions avail on you tube and by googleing the problem-will need too much space to type out testing proceedures. good luck.

The statter is out. You have to remove primary. Remove clutch basket primmary chain and front sprocket. Behind the front sprocket behind flywheel is the statter remove and replace.there will be 3 bolts holding it on and 2 phillips screws then remove. This is a big job. Cause it takes special sockets to remove clutch basket. and front sprocket Good Luck MOPAR KENNY

Step 1. First things first, load test the battery. Most places like Auto Zone will do it for free. Even if it measures over 12.5 vdc it can still be bad under a load. Battery is typically rated at 19 amp hours and 270 Cold Cranking Amps (CCA).

Start the engine and measure DC Volts across the battery terminals, the regulator should be putting out 14.3 - 14.7 vdc at 3600 rpm and 75 degrees F.


Step 2. To check the regulator unplug it from the stator. Take a test light and clip it to the negative terminal of the battery and then touch first one pin and then the other on the plug that goes to the regulator. If you get even the slightest amount of light from the test light the regulator is toast.

To do this with a meter which is more accurate: black lead to battery ground, red lead to each pin on the plug, start with the voltage scale higher than 12vdc and move voltage scale down in steps for each pin. Any voltage is a bad regulator.
You may get battery voltage on all three pins on the newer 3 phase regulators.
The no voltage is for older type regulators with diode indicating the diode is bad and the regulator needs replacing.


Step 3. On the other part of the disconnected regulator plug. Set the multimeter for Ohms x1 scale and measure for resistance across the pins of the stator. You should read something around 0.1 to 0.2 ohms for the TC88 32 amp system.


Step 4. Then check for continuity between each pin on the plug and frame/engine ground. The meter needle should not move (infinite resistance)(digitals will show infinite resistance) if the meter needle does move (indicating continuity)(digitals will show some resistance), recheck very carefully. If the meter still shows continuity to ground the stator is shorted (bad).


Step 5. Set the meter to read A/C volts higher than 30 volts (the scale setting for voltage should always be higher than the highest voltage you expect or you may fry the meter). Start the bike, and measure from one pin to the other on the plug (DO NOT cross the multimeter probes! - touch them to each other). You should read roughly 16-20 vac per 1,000 rpm.


Step 6. If the battery was good under load test, if the stator is NOT shorted to ground, and the stator is putting out A/C voltage, then the regulator is bad (most likely even if if passed step 2)

Where the 3 wires go on back oft altinator on my 1992 celica


1992 Toyota Celica alternator connections:
The alternator has three wires that are connected at the rear of alternator by means of a connector.
One wire goes to the speed meter to light the charging bulb, other wire comes from ignition switch through fuse and the third wire has all time 12 Volts through fuse.

What could be the cause for the connector getting hot


the wires get hot because of excessive current flow ,probably from a faulty regulator for the alternator that is allowing the voltage to rise uncontrolled . Have the alternator professionally checked as there may be a wire shorting out

1992 yamaha fzr 600 genesis just went dead a day after riding. put new battery in and it worked for acouple days but wont hold a charge. its now dead again.


use a vom/ meter on current setting put in circuit ..take hot off battery attach one lead to bat + the other lead to heavy cable u just disconnected. but 1st charge bat to full. see current draw. start to pull one fuse at a time till current drops. that circuit is the culprit. then youll need to find out why is drawing w/ bike off. wire chafed ? minor short.. or when running meter on battery 14.5 volts not running 12.5 volts if the vovtages don't go up when running regulator or altinator is bad or bat wire .. get the manual.. a big help...

Will start and run fo a short distance and cut off. I had the battery checked and charged and it tested ok. could it be the alternater?


Could be..... the batery is just used for starting, once the engine is running it pulls electric power from the altinator, if the altinator which also charges the batery, is not working power is pulled from the battery, and when the battery goes dead, the car does too. When the Car turns off, do you then need to jump it to start it? if so you could be pretty convinced that the altinator is the issue

i`d say your battery is already dead(not able to hold charge) the car requires the continuous flow of power from the altinator. if the the power dies then your altinator is not supplying it properly. get it checked and replaced if nesesary.

My chech engine light burn it flashes 19 times it slow as a snail


take a test meter to the altinator and see what the volts coming from the altinator are and if they are below 12 volts the replace the altinator if they are 12 or higher then take the batter out and have it checked to see if it has a dead cell in it
