Long Pointy nose pliers, and pull hard, sounds like it may be welded in there, so if it is there's a major issue with your alternator wiring or someone has put wrong charge through battery or earthed it out, replace and see how you go, good luck

SX4 2.0. Replaced alternator. Why isn't it charging?


could be a fuse in the circuit blown, bad wire , bad earth (ground) , faulty regulator if it is not in the back of the alternator

Battery light alternator


The Charge lamp comes on with the Alternator fails to keep battery charge going. (lots of way to fail, and ALT Is 100% good) it's a system. each part of it must be good, end to end.
so...
i put my voltmeter across battery, i start car, i see 13.3 to 15vdc, alt is good.
no? , i see now, 12.2v. ALt is dead, (i didnt say bad) and battery is sightly discharged, 12.6v is charged. (key off, rested voltage)
This 12v tells me the ALT is shut down. only why is the question.

how can any charge system fail,
bad battery tops the list here, they LOVE to fail.
1: belt slips.
2: belt missing
3: bad alt.
4: bad wires to ALT . (corrosion on any wire or lug)
5: fuses blown , any listed below.:
your alt is not an ECU controlled, alt ,its 100% self contained

did you ever remove the ALT and blow the 100 amp fuseable link
the first step of any alt pul, is the pull the NEG, battery lug or BOOM.

im logged in to alldata.com so can you.

and what do i see.
a 5 wire ALT. one is the frame ground, so it must not be rusty or..... it fails. frame to engine block. no rust here.

wire L , yellow.goes to dash LEDs (alt failure idiot lamps) (this works)
wire. S white goes to ALT 5a fuse, is it blown?
wire :B B/G color, goes to the 100 amp link fuse. (blown>?)
wire IG Red-white, goes to a fuse marked 10A gauge.

i think the IG wire is the voltage sense wire.
no sense, no charge. I think the whole I/P dash cluster goes dead when this fuse blows.

The S wire is the boot strap voltage sense, it wakes up the regulator .
if open , the reg stays asleep, as does ALT.
Alternators can not self start, the regulator has boot strap device
that cures that. called self excitation. so this wire is critical.
All wires except the L wire is critical. in this case.

the B wire is the big wire, it charges the battery . 50amps or more..

any of the 5 paths open , kills the ALT dead.
The REG inside the ALT can also shut it down.
eg: battery bad, with huge cell resistances. total.
eg: overvoltge for any reasons. including attempts top run car with no battery, (dont ask)
eg: over current (battery cells 1 to 6 shorted) or 25 KC lamps added.
eg: over temperature shut down.

that is about it.

Alt. won't charge


Probably.
The volt gauge turns the alternator on once the engine is running. There could be a short in the circuit board inside the cluster.

No it isn't bolted in. Disconnect battery and then use needle nose pliers to pull the pins.

2007 Rav4 120 amp ALT fuse, under the hood.


You should be able to unclip the fuse box and pull it up. then you can access the screw holding the fuse in place. Make sure to disconnect the battery first.

Elctrical can't get car into gear

Dead Batt (poss. Alternator?)


Likely you did this already but check fuses in power distribution box near battery (likely two 60a fuses for alt in there). Additionally, was alternator regulator tested or was alt "full fielded" for test. (regulator failure will prevent power made at alt from reaching the battery). Also, check continuity of leads going to alternator to make sure they're OK.

How to change under-hood fuse in a994 Mercery Villager


you have fuses there and in the van by the drivers side instrument panel.

here's how to change,
Fuse — Main Fuse Junction Panel NOTE: The MAIN and ALT fuses are high ampere cartridges that are held in place by screws, which must be removed in order to replace the cartridge. For removal of the MAIN or ALT fuse, refer to the procedure in this section. Always replace a blown fuse with a new one having the same amperage rating.

Removal
  1. Remove the appropriate fuse panel cover (14A003).
  1. Pull the fuse straight up from the fuse junction panel (14A068). If the fuse is a cartridge-type, carefully pry the clip, then pull the fuse straight up.
I would also check relays, including inhibtor relay. relas have a relese tab.
