Why would you even try that without asking that at the parts store
& having them both tested?

Do that

change your battery cables and check all wires on the alternator for loose connections, expecially the grounds.

Could be a pinched wire that did not show up when new. May have worked thin over the years.... Though to locate at times..... Bulk head headers can be a culprit, any where a wire passes through or over metal parts. Check for corrosion near battery terminals and alternator as a corroded connector can be "seen" as a resistance to the alternator and it will output more amps to compensate.....

1 & 3 should be all you need. The middle one may be an extra ground or signal for PCM in another model. Colors on the harness are light green/red for pin 1 and orange/light blue for pin 3. OK?

Unfortunately if it was a rebuilt alternator it may have one bad diode causing it to bleed amps and drain the battery. With rebuilds this happens a lot these days. Either have the diodes tested or demand a different alternator under warranty.

My 2005 ford explorer the charging system light comes on when i get over 2000 rpms.. i put a test light on altenator wire that comes from the altenator to the battery. and accelerated the the vehicle while...


the alternator bushing is worn and failing when the alternator reaches over 2000 rpm it basically does not contact the bushings any longer and will not make contact, make sure the belt is not slipping, other than putting a load test on the alternator to verify that it is working properly, as it may be the gauge. A test light will not help. A battery alternator tester is relatively cheep, even a corner garage may have one and help you out. Being an 05 it is completely possible that is the alternator all together.
