Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks
We did all testing and we found the alternator is working, but is only the engine stop after removing the terminal. Please what the course of this. thanking you in advanced
To test the alternator , connect a voltmeter across the battery terminals , battery voltage should be around 12 vaults on a charged battery , if higher turn on the head lights for one minute to remove charge to 12 volts, start engine and rev to 2000 rpm, voltage should now be around 13.5 to 14.5 volts for a alternator in good condition.

SOURCE: Will not charge
you will get some funny answers from some of these "experts " The symptoms suggest to me with out much doubt that the regulator is not doing its job correctly ,consistently.Iwould take it to an AUTO ELECTRICIAN and get it tested in situ.... there is only 4 things it can be , wireing ---battery---alternator-----regulator and of those the reg. is the only one that chops and changes. it will cost little for a sparky to check the reg ,. AND I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THE OUTCOME

You have to remove the belt.Also you can have it tested on the vehicle.Once you have the 2 bolts off and the belt the alternator should come off.Good luck.

SOURCE: Daughter called me ..car wont
it sounds like you have blown fuse to the Alternator.. I don't know what car you are talking about but they charging systems vary.. But if alternator isn't getting all the power it needs it won't charge. this should be checked.
