How to check charging system


You will need a volt meter, a cheap one is fine, mine was free at a parking lot sale. Set the volt meter to DC Volt, if it gives you choices pick 20 volt. Hook it to the battery see what your readings are should be some where around 11.5 to 12.3, now start the engine ,run at high RPM . Did the voltage go up ? If it went down it is not charging, It should have went up to 13.8 and as high as 15 volt , this settles back down to 13.8 as the battery charges up. Did your rectifier have three in a row flat spades ? If so unplug the three wire plastic holder, the two outside wires on this plug are from under the flywheel, ATTENTION this current will be AC not DC current so set you volt meter to AC ,engine running fast, ground your meter to the engine and check for voltage on the two outside wires on the plug,one at a time, should be 18 volt AC or around on each wire, if so your stator is working . The center wire on the plug is DC . When plugged into the rectifier the two AC currents go through diodes which change it back to DC current and also there is a regulator inside the rectifier that controls the amount of DC Voltage. So follow the middle wire and test it ,I think it goes to the charging meter on dash .

Your charging system is not working correctly. Unlike most other vehicles, the alternator in yours does not have a built in regulator circuit. Some troubleshooting must be done to find the defective component. Most of this can be done with the vehicle still assembled.

First, check that you don't have a blown fusible link. In most newer cars, these will be in the underhood fuse panel, and look like giant fuses. If good, you will read very nearly zero volts and zero ohms when measuring between the positive battery terminal and the alternator output terminal. If either measurement doesn't read zero, find the loose connection, bad wire, or blown fusible link.

Next, check the ground connections to the engine, battery, and car body to make sure you don't have a bad wire or connection somewhere. Again, measure voltage and resistance between the negative battery terminal and all associated grounding locations. For a quickie test, you can rig a jumper cable between the battery negative terminal and the alternator case. If there is a spark when you make the connection, you have a bad ground somewhere.

If your battery is well connected to the alternator, the problem may lie in the control circuit. Most Chrysler alternators have two control wires that control the field coil. Some control the battery current and have constant ground supplied, and some have battery voltage applied and control the ground current. To test, disconnect the control connector and measure the voltage of both terminals with the ignition in the "off" and "run" positions. Make a chart of each terminal and its corresponding voltage.

Start the vehicle and measure both terminals again. If the terminals tend to be zero volts, except when the vehicle runs you have voltage on one terminal, you have a system where the computer controls battery voltage. If the terminals tend to be 12 volts when the ignition is on, then one terminal goes low when the engine runs, the computer controls ground current. If the voltages of one terminal change but not the other, this suggests a bad computer.

To do a go/no go test of the alternator unit, you can connect the control pins on the alternator with the control connector disconnected. Simply connect jumper wires to the two control terminals of the alternator. Connect one jumper to a known good ground, leaving the other jumper loose. Connect a voltmeter to the battery terminals or to the output wire on the alternator. Start the vehicle and briefly connect the second jumper wire to the positive battery terminal while watching the voltmeter. While the jumpers are both connected, the battery voltage should rise dramatically.If it doesn't, this suggests a bad alternator.

If all this sounds too complicated or dangerous, a good mechanic can perform a similar diagnosis in under an hour with definite results. Good luck.

How do I fix or reset my inverter?


Low input voltage or current.
Bad input voltage sensor.
Test by connecting directly to battery (with jumpers or make an adapter). The wiring or connection to your power port (cigar lighter) may be bad.

If it works at the battery, it is the car wiring. If not, it will cost more than the 25 dollar price tag to have it repaired. Just replace it (tryhttp://search.harborfreight.com/cpisearch/web/search.do?keyword=inverter )

I am installinga 4548 inverter. At 4500 watts, it puts out approximately 20 amp per phase. My generater that will feed the charging current for the batteries will put outapproximately 28 amps. Is the...


Let just wait a minute. You have an inverter that is rated at 4500 watts. This spooky. The inverter has a three phase input/three phase output? What is the inverter going to be used for?

Next question. What type of batteries are you using and what is the voltage/current in series or parallel? What will be the total voltage you will producing with the batteries? What is the total current of the batteries.

Another question? What is the voltage of the 28 amps? If it going to dump 28 amps across some batteries that rated at 12 volts and 1400 amp/hrs. For 12 volt batteries with a total of 1400 amps. What you will need approx 14 to 14 1/2 DC and with 28 amps across the batteries for charging these batteries. The batteries will be gone in about 1 hour. Boil all the water out of them. When a battery starts to boil it release water with hydrogen gas (the gas is very explosive and dangerous).

You also don't have a regulation circuit to limit the amount of current depending on the needs of the batteries. Also, you don't have a trickle charger to keep the batteries fully charge when the batteries are idle.

You will also need DC regulated charger that will keep the voltage 2-4 volts above you battery voltage. Without this voltage above the batteries voltage it will not charge those batters. Batteries need to forced to except a charge that why voltage above the source voltage. If you can check the voltage on your car/truck with a 12 volt system. While engine is running the voltage across the battery will be 13.8 to 14.1 volts. Now, the current limiter is the alternator it has a regulator built into it for stabiizing voltage and current went the batteries require more current but it limited by alternator regulator
Now, to get more current out of the alternator the regulator will supply dc voltage to the stator of the alternator generator more current. More dc voltage is supplied by the regulator but the dc voltages is limit to about 24 volts. Another limiting factor is the alternator copper windings diameter---larger diameter more current, small diameter less current. Utilities systems use big mega watts generators. The maxi um dc voltage for these three phase generator would like 500 to 800dc volts for peak to peak output. There is a simpler way of doing this.

You need to rethink everything here. Also, I can help you if you supply the needed information.
I truly wish you luck in your electrical endeavors. GB you. stewbison

Hi im just wondering which connector to put my power supply to and would a 240v to 12v inverter supply the right amount of power


Check the input voltage number on the power supply. Many cameras take 110 - 240 volts. If that is the case you do not need an inverter ... if the input specifies a voltage such as 110 OR 220 then that is the voltage you must have from your inverter. If you are stepping all the way down to 12 volts then the output voltagefrom the inverter must match the input voltage for the camera. It is best to use a recepticle adapter for your power supply and make sure the power supply input and the external electrical supply match or the external supply is within the range specified on the power supply..

Power supply circuit boards,gives only 2.0 volts


OK, what is the input voltage? I will give you a ruff diagram here. (volt in) Vcc--sw's-on/off/IR-control board (microprocessor)---ccfl (cold cathode fluorescent lamp) inverter (changes DC voltage tow switching DC (such as on/off/on/off/on/off but at a much faster pace (20Khz)---toroidal coil (this coil will step the switch DC voltage up to about 1000 to 1500 switch DC volt, then this coil will change the orientation of the voltage to current relationship by shifting the current by 90 degree's where it lag the voltage---this process has some changes on circuit and how it works)----OK, from the ccfl inverter------voltage multiplier (all this some HV capacitors and HV diodes hook up an configuration where each stage will double the voltage that go into... EXAMPLE: 4 stage voltage multiplier for each stage now it double the voltage 1500V input to 1st stage--output to 2nd stage 3000V output to 3rd stage 6000V out put to 4th stage 12000V switching DC, they will also refer to this voltage AC voltage because AC switch to from - negative voltage to + positive voltage.


Like in you case, the two volts from the controller to ccfl. Out put volt from ccfl with be around 2.4 to 2.6 due capacitance discharge, Now this voltage will be divided in the ccfl by two input windings (I am not going to explain this). Now the two input winding will induce voltage to the secondary winding (step up). The output from secondary of toroidal coil will be multi switching to the voltage multiplier. Probably in the neighborhood of 1500 switching volt. How many stages the voltage multiplier has I don't know. The ignitier voltage to the cathode from the multiplier would be around 12000 voltage to get image intensifier tube to fire. stewbison

I attach my inverter with custom battery cables and it powers up. As soon as I plug in an extension cord (any cord)it starts beeping. I don't even have anything plugged into the other end.


please check the voltage of the battery may be the voltage of battery is low or use the multi meter and check DC volts before conneceting the battery and after conneceting once more check the DC volts it could slove the problem
the beeping sound is due to battery low voltage
what is the DC input of the Inverter check the battery hook up if the inverter is of example DC 24 volts please check what is the input

Inverter output voltage (eg. 96 volts) not if this is an issue


96 volts is low. 106 volts is low. You need to be about 110 to 120 volts optimum. How is your battery input? This is crucial for the inverter to output correctly. If it needs 24 volts DC in Then make sure it's 24 volts. 48 volts means 48 volts. Check the battery voltage and compare to inverter input requirements first.

12volts killed it!!!!


You must only run any device such as the GPS with the factory rated cable-adabtor. The cable-adabtor has a voltage and current regulated supply built in.

Most of these devices work on 5 Volts. Some work on 3 Volts. The voltage has to be very well regulated and filtered.

Inside of the GPS there is an inverter board that has some electronics on it that converts the voltage coming in, to proper sub voltages to run the various circuits.

What you did was most likely damage the input inverter board. Your unit will have to be sent back to the manufacture to have this board replaced. It also possible that other areas of the GPS were also damaged. The service tech at the manufacture has the proper test and diagnostics equipment to determine the parts that have to be changed.

As like all electronic products, if the damage was caused by any means other than normal use and connections, the warrany will not be covered.
