SOURCE: I have a countax K18

there is a coil under the flywheel that is supposed to charge the battery...if you look at the engine there should be a wire coming from under the flywheel that is supposed to go to either a diode or a regulator and then to the battery...you can put a meter on this lead and one on the engine ground to see if it is putting out voltage...you may need to put the meter on AC VOLTS as the voltage may be AC...if there is a regulator(it looks like a heatsink module,square with fins on it..).this may be defective. The ac coming out of the stator(this is the tech term for the alternator) is present..(it will vary with eng speed)..then the regulator is probably bad

i was mowing in light grass and hit a tree root. the mower quit, batteries are fully charged. can anyone suggest a way to remove top cover? I suspect that i'm going to be confronted w/a printed circuit board with several silicon controlled rectiviers on it. I'm a legally blind ex electronics tech.

On almost any engine you pull the flywheel and you will see the charging coil. Once out it can be tested by yourself or any competent electrician. Good luck. donnyb60

What is causing the battery to drain?


Running the car will drain the battery it if it's not charging ! An if your charging light is on it isn't charging ! Did you check power an grounds on the alternator ? There is a single heavier wire on the back of the alternator, this should have battery voltage ! You may want to take this to a ASE certified repair shop !
Functionality
With the ignition switch in the RUN position, voltage is applied through the warning indicator I circuit 904 (LG/RD) to the voltage regulator. This turns the regulator on, allowing current to flow from battery sense A circuit 35 (OG/LB) to the generator field coil. When the engine is started, the generator begins to generate alternating current (AC) which is internally converted to direct current (DC). This current is then supplied to the vehicle's electrical system through the output (B+) terminal of the generator.
Once the generator begins generating current, a voltage signal is taken from the generator stator and fed back to the regulator S circuit 4 (WH/BK). This voltage feedback signal (typically half the battery voltage) is used to turn off the warning indicator.
With the system functioning normally, the generator output current is determined by the voltage of the A circuit 35 (OG/LB). The A circuit 35 (OG/LB) voltage is compared to a set voltage internal to the regulator, and the regulator controls the generator field current to maintain the correct generator output.
The set voltage will vary with temperature and is typically higher in cold temperatures and lower in warm temperatures. This allows for better battery recharge in the winter and reduces the chance of overcharging in the summer.
Battery Positive Output (B+) Circuit 38 (BK/OG)
The generator output is supplied through the battery positive output (B+) terminal on the back of the generator to the battery and electrical system.
I Circuit 904 (LG/RD)
The I (ignition) circuit 904 (LG/RD) is used to turn on the voltage regulator. This circuit is powered up with the ignition switch in the RUN position. This circuit is also used to turn the charging system warning indicator on if there is a fault in the charging system operation.
A Circuit 35 (OG/LB)
The A (battery sense) circuit 35 (OG/LB) is used to sense battery voltage. This voltage is used by the regulator to determine generator output. This circuit is used to supply current to the generator field (rotor). The amount of current supplied to the rotor will determine generator output.
S Circuit 4 (WH/BK)
The S (stator) circuit 4 (WH/BK) is used to feed back a voltage signal from the generator to the regulator. This voltage is used by the regulator to turn off the charging system warning indicator. The S circuit is fed back externally on external mounted regulator generators.
Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical
  • Battery case, posts, hold-down clamp, cables and connections
  • Generator drive (serpentine) belt for condition and tension to make sure there is no slip between the belt and the pulley. For additional information, refer to Section 303-05 .
  • Battery charge
  • Generator pulley
  • Battery junction box (BJB)Mega Fuse
  • Battery junction box fuse:
    • 11 (20A)
  • Central junction box (CJB) fuse:
    • 30 (30A)
  • Circuitry
  • Charging system warning indicator
  • Cables
  1. Check the operation of the charging system warning indicator lamp (instrument cluster). Normal operation is as follows:
    • With the ignition switch OFF, the charging system warning indicator should be OFF.
    • With the ignition switch in RUN and the engine off, the charging system warning indicator light should be on.
    • With the engine running, the charging system warning indicator light should be off.
  1. Verify the battery condition. Refer to Section 414-01 .

    Your whole problem is the alternator is not charging , a couple tests with a volt meter would tell you !

Said alternator was bad


Bad alternator means no battery charge. Run the battery down without a charging means no power and engine will die. Charge the battery and put a meter on it to see if it goes to 14 volts with engine running. If stays under 13 volts with engine running, replace the alternator.

Hooked up battery backwards on my 1992 ford explorer. Got it running now the alternator isn't charging the battery. Has 12 volts power. Could it be the points on alternator where the wiring hooks into...


The battery needs 12.6 volts or more to be in service
When the engine is running you need 14 volts or more
out of the alternator to charge the battery
You can test the alt by testing across the battery term
or the alt output wire & ground to case or motor
Could be the diodes got fried & you need a new alt
Have it tested at parts store, if you can't figure it out
Check all fuses & fusible links first

Need Homelite Mower UT13122 wiring schematic to check switch problem. Battery fully charged


Check the switch for current flow with and without the key. Then make sure the ground switch is disengaging when you pull the handle.Possible stretched cable.

I have a craftsman with a kohler magnum 18hp. If i put a battery charger on my battery it dont charge i can turn the key and it wont roll over. If i jump my lawn mower and it running i can turn the key all...


Hi, if your battery wont charge you will need to replace it and when you do you need to check that the mower is charging by checking the battery voltage with a multimeter while the mower is running. It should be around 14 volts. Regards Phil.

1999 Toyota Tacoma battery keeps dying


This is easy to test but you need a multimeter. Connect the multimeter to the battery and run the engine at a fast idle (say 2000 rpm). You should get a voltage reading anywhere from 14 to 15 volts if the battery is fully charged and the alternator is working. If the reading is around 12 volts, then the alternator is not working.

Saab 93 1.9 tid warning battery not charging car died whilst driving charged battery at home car now starting lights all out is this battery prob or alternator?


The easiest way to check is with the car running, disconnect the positve side of the battery, if the car dies, then it is the altenator, if the car keeps running then it is the battery. If you have a volt ohm meter, check the chrge going to the battery you should get between 12 and 14 volts if it is lower than 12 you have an altenator issue. the altenator should always produce enough to charge the battery and run the car at the same time, if not then the battery wears down.

My 2005 ford explorer check charging system warning light


if charging light is on w/ engine running,the fault could be the alternator or another component of the charging system.remove, clean and tighten battery post connections to check for alternator output,use a volt meter or multi-tester set to 50 Volts DC,w/ tester on battery terminals it should read 12 volts W/ engine off;13 to 14 volts w/engine running.if voltage increases when alternator is spinning,suspect battery

We bought a new battery, it ran until its charge was gone. We thought it was the battery, so we returned it. Ran it again and the same thing happend. Possibilities of why it may not be charging?


Regardless of the make and model-if you have any kind of multimeter or volt meter-check the voltage on both battery posts when the engine is running. It should read 12-14 VDC. If not -the charging system on the engine may be bad. If you check the battery after it has run down-and the meter still registers 12 VDC or a bit more-the problem is within the battery cables or connectors on the battery. Clean them throughly and re-aatach.
