HAVE YOU CHECKED THE CHARGING SYSTEM? YOU COULD HAVE A BAD VOLTAGE REGULATOR. ITS REAL SIMPLE TO DO.START THE MOWER,PUT IT AT FULL THROTTLE.TURN A MULTI-METER TO VOLTS AND TOUCH THE BATTERY.YOU SHOULD READ 13.5-14.6 VOLTS.IF NOT GOOD CHANCE THE VOLTAGE REGULATOR IS NO GOOD.

SOURCE: mower runs great, problem is

Try disconnecting the battery and note if the voltage drops.
If it does, the battery is not holding a charge.
If it keeps its voltage, the problem lies in a minor short in the mower.
You have to determine which item has the problem first.

Is this helpful?

SOURCE: my lt 1050 will not

Does the battery have good voltage even with the key on? A battery can have 12.6-13 volts with the key off but once it is turned to "ON" it can drop considerably. Lights, solenoids, safety switches, and relays all take voltage from battery. Also check to make sure the battery connections are free of corrosion and tight.

2001 Dodge intrepid. Battery light came on while driving. Got home turned car off, tried it and it was completely dead. put new battery and fuse in . still just clicking. what else could this be?


Pretty sure your alternator died.
Battery voltage with the car not running should be close to 12.5 volts on a fully charged battery. New batteries need to be charged before they are installed to keep a good alternator from melting down and dying.
With engine running the battery should read about 14.5 volts indicating your alternator is charging. At lower rpms battery voltage will still be above 12.5 volts with the engine running.
If you get it cranked and the battery does not read above 12.5 volts, you have a bad alternator.

Mazda Bongo Altenetor Is Not Charging.What May Be The Fault?


-Most Alternator not charge, because the brushes are won out.
But here is the basic to determine what is wrong before replace any part.

-Turn on the car let it run to normal idle then use voltmeter to check
power at battery terminal. If it's below 13 volt. The alternator need to be replace. But if it show 13.5 to 14 volt. The alternator is good. The battery is bad. It doesn't hole any charge. Need new battery.
Keep in mine. each battery is last ONLY 5 Years.

Good Luck

Harley battery won't stay charge


Hi Anonymous, 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 than that 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.

2006 dyna not charging battery. Bought new battery. Bu/t is only runing at 11 volts with bike runing?


Ok, to test the charging system on your bike, you must start with a FULLY CHARGED BATTERY. You'll also need a DVOM (Digital Volt Ohm Meter). Connect the meter "across" the battery with the red meter lead on the positive and the black meter lead on the negative terminal. Put the meter's function switch in DC VOLTS, 20 VOLT RANGE. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. The meter should read 14.5-15.0 volts.

If not, you need to check the output of the alternator. Find the connector plug of your alternator where the regulator plug into it at the lower left front of your engine. Unplug the connector and look inside. You'll see two metal electrical pins inside the connector in the engine case. Put your meter's function switch in AC VOLTS, 50 VOLT RANGE. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. Touch and hold one meter lead to each of the metal prongs inside the connector. Since you're measuring AC voltage, it makes no difference which lead goes to which prong. Your meter should read at least 30 volts.

If you don't have at least 30 volts out of your alternator, your stator is bad. If the alternator checks OK, but the voltage at the battery is below 14.0 volts, your regulator is probably bad. Make sure you have a good ground on your regulator. I always put a 'star washer" between the regulator and the frame to insure a good ground. I do not agree with cutting and splicing the wire that runs from the regulator to the battery positive post. This is taking the lazy man's way out. Replace the wire in one piece. Also, put a bit of "bulb grease" on the pins in the connector to keep them from corroding.

Good Luck
Steve

When I start my 2009 Chevy Silverado it shows 15 1/2 volts. Within a few minutes it goes to 12 1/2 volts. Is this normal?


This is normal, My '04 GMC, goes to around 16 at first start-up then drops to 131/2 after it runs a while.

Alternator and stator....put a voltmeter on the battery - it should read about 12- 13 volts. Then start the bike.... when its running, the volts should increase.... if it doesnt....your charging system isnt working.
