SOURCE: Miller roughneck 2e has low voltage 0ut of 120 volt receptacle only 5 volts at idle and 45 volts under power

have the alternator checked by an electrician
a t idle will be low as the exciter circuit will be producing low volts but it should go up when at operating rpms
45 volts at rpms indicates that the field windings of the alternator are not getting full current to produce the desired out put

Can alternator put out 14.2 volts but not enough amps to charge battery and turn off dattery light?


Yes and no.
It sounds like you have a wiring problem.
The alternator output could be 14 volts and only one or two amps, but that would be enough to kill the warning light. Its more likely the alternator is charging but the current is not reaching the battery.

1998 jeep grand cherokee 5.9 v8 charges sometimes then will discharge


Sounds like the battery is dead & not capable of
being charged

You already know the alternator should put out
14.2 volts even with all accy's on

The only thing that changes is the current output
when you load a circuits,not voltage

You may be able to just buy the regulator &
replace yourself

Have to OHM out the diodes when it is apart

You should also check diodes for leakage with
an amp meter with KO/EO

Also check for diode current ripple with engine running

2001 Electraglide Ultra..battery won't charge. Where do I test the output of the Volt. Reg.?


Hi Thomas, 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.

Hello and thank you in advance Here is my problem. My wife has a 1999 sportster (883) . I charge the battery and it starts the bike quikly. After a 2 hour ride, no more battery.I have to recharge it...


You need to check the output of the charging circuit. Your problem could be the alternator or regulator. I'd take the battery out and take it to an automotive parts store and have them load test the battery just to make sure it's alright.

To test the charging system, first charge the battery to full charge. You'll need a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter). Put the meter's function selector switch to DC Volts, 20 volts or greater. Connect the meter's red lead to the positive post of the battery and the black lead to the negative post of the battery. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. After about two minutes or so, you should read between 14.5 volts and 15.0 volts. If you do not get this reading, continue to the alternator output check.

Find the two wires that run back towards the engine together from the regulator and follow them. You should find a round plug. Unplug the plug and look into the engine side of the plug. You will see two metal contacts. Are they clean? This is where you are going to test the output voltage from your alternator. You'll be testing an AC voltage so it won't make any difference which color lead you put into which metal contact. Put your meter's function selector switch in AC Volts, 50 volt or greater range. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. Insert one meter lead into each of the metal contacts in the engine side of the plug. Do not let the meter leads touch each other or the engine case. You should read at least 25 volts.

If you don't have at least 25 volts at the engine plug from the alternator, your stator is bad and needs replacement. If you do have 25 or more volts coming out of the alternator but not the 14.5 volts at the battery, your voltage regulator is probably bad. I hope this helps.

Good Luck

Engine light and battery light comes on about every other time i start it and te battery is not charging all the time


To check the charging system, first make sure you have a fully charged battery in the bike. You'll need a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter). Set the meter's function selector switch to DC VOLTS, 50 volt range. Connect the red meter lead to the positive battery post and the black meter lead to the negative post. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. After a minute or so, your meter should read between 14.5 and 15.0 volts. If not, proceed to check the output voltage of the alternator.

Follow the two black wires from the voltage regulator down to the connection on the front of the engine. Unplug the connection and look down inside the engine side of the connector. You'll see two metal contacts. Make sure they are clean. This is where you're going to put your meter leads to read the output of the alternator. Since it is an AC voltage, it makes no difference which meter lead goes to which contact as long as they don't touch each other or the engine case. Put your meter's function switch to AC VOLTS, 50 volts or greater range. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. Touch a meter lead to each of the metal contacts. You should read at least 30 Volts AC. If not, your alternator stator is likely bad. If you do read the 30 volts or more at the alternator but not the 14.5 to 15.0 volts at the battery, your voltage regulator is likely the problem. Make sure your voltage regulator has a good ground against the frame.

With the battery fully charged, use a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) to check the output of the charging system. Connect it across the battery, red meter lead to positive, black meter lead to negative. Put the meter's function switch in DC VOLTS, 20 VOLT range. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle of about 1500-2000 RPM. The meter should read 14.5 to 15.0 volts.

If the meter does not read correctly, unplug the regulator where it enters the front of the engine case. You'll be measuring the AC voltage at the engine case side of the plug. Put your meter's function switch in AC VOLTS, 50 VOLT range. Put one meter lead into one metal contact in the plug and the other lead into the other metal contact in the plug. Makes no difference which lead goes to which metal contact. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. You should read 30 volts or better.

If you do not read 30 volts at the engine, your stator is bad. If you have 30 volts or more at the engine but low voltage at the battery, your regulator is probably bad. This is a simple test and it's accuracy is about 90% or so.

Good Luck

Battery charges most of the time but the longer i ride the battery goes dead and speedometer and turn signals stop working but it will keep runnning


You need to check the output of your alternator. You'll need a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) to check the outputs.

First connect the meter across your battery. Red meter lead to the positive terminal, black meter lead to the negative or a good ground. Put the function selector of your meter in DC VOLTS, 20 VOLT RANGE. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle, 2000 RPM. Your meter should read 14.5 to 15.0 volts. Turn all lights on and make sure the voltage stays the same.

If your meter reads low in this test, you need to check the output of the stator. On the lower left front of the engine, you'll see a plug where the voltage regulator plugs into the engine case. Unplug this plug and look into the part that is in the engine case. You'll see two metal contacts. These are what you're going to put your meter leads to in this test. Since the voltage is now AC volts, it makes no difference which lead goes to which contact. Put your meter's function selector in AC VOLTS, 50 VOLT RANGE. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. Insert the meter leads into the contacts. The meter should read at least 30 volts AC voltage here.

If the alternator stator test fails, you need a new stator. If it passes the test, you need a new regulator. If both pass the test, you need to evaluate the current draw of any extra lights or other equipment that you may have put on the bike. If your equipment is drawing more current than the alternator is capable of producing, a slow drawdown of the battery is the results.

My 99 safari volt meter always stays on about 14 even at idle but recently it has started dropping to about 12 at idle then back to 14 when driving. what is this indicating?


Not necessarily a problem. It depends on MANY things. If you are running lights, heater or AC, brake lights, all of these things can cause what you describe.

At speed (2,000 rpm or so), you need to be 14 volts or higher.

To test:

Fully charge, then load test battery.
If Battery okay, then load test the alternator to check output amps. If no tester is available, often parts stores will test for free.
