How to fix voltage regulator


The regulator is inside the alternator. Get a new alternator or disassemble the alternator and install a new one. My option is get another alternator.

Changed alternator, new battery, and now no dash lights window power and unless i hold in accelerator the car will die.


test the alternator it may be bad. but it could be something simple as a wire did not get hooked back up correctly. and then there is the other option you didn't disconnect the battery before working on the electrical system and shorted something out. check your ground wires and the plugs for the alternator and anything else you worked on. my neighbor worked on his Honda and it had three bad alternators and he had to go with the orginal expensive alternator to make it run again.

1998 mercury grand battery not charging put new alternator and battery still not working


Is the battery light on the dash board working? If the light does not work the alternator will not charge, it needs the power from the light to energise the rotor.

I have a problem with a 2008 Dodge Charger, my battery went bad and I had to jump it off to take it and get a new battery put in but now my new battery won't start my car not even when the new battery...


When you jump started the vehicle, it started as normal and you drove to a shop to have a new battery installed.?? Correct??

1. Who removed the old battery and installed the new one?

2. Did the car start normally immediately after the new battery was fitted? How frequently were you able to drive the car on the new battery before the problem you described appeared?

3. Has anything been done to the vehicle since the new battery was fitted.?

Why won't my 03 ford taurus start


Who told you the alternator was fine? Sounds exactly like an alternator issue, fuel relay cant stop your dash gauges from working. An alternator should be putting out 13-14.5 wolts with the car running. Do you have any lights on the dash? like a battery light or anything out of the ordinary?

The alternator light comes on when the field voltage drops below a certain voltage. There is a possibility the connector to the alternator is corroded, as this is commmon, and may be a source for a false indication of trouble. There is also the possibility the regulator is failing. If the voltage was below 13.8 volts when he measured the voltage, he was only reading battery voltage. if he measured between 14.2 and 14.8 volts the alternator was putting out power.

An indirect way of checking is turn on the headlights, high beam when it is idling at night. turn on the heater so you can see the lights dim slightly, and then step on the accelerator to bring engine speed up to about 1200 RPM- the lights should get brighter. If they do not, the alternator is not putting out current like it should be.

Load testing would only measure the battery, it would not load the engine at all if the alternator is not putting out power. If the engine bogged down when alternator is load tested, the alternator is putting out power. The alternator is converting engine power to voltage and current to charge the battery, hence the load on the engine.

If the alternator has 75000 miles on it, replacing it is a pretty good idea as the brushes are quite worn at this point. That should remedy the situation.

It would also probably be a good idea to replace the starter solenoid. Turning the key 2 or 3 times before the starter engages is never a good sign.

The only way the heater might enter into your situation is if something is not shutting off when the key is in the off position or removed. Those phantom loads will find an electrical path to ground through the fan motor. If you have installed anything aftermarket that can be powered up without the key needing to be in the ignition is your culprit. The pahnatom loads like that can discharge a battery completely in a matter of just a few days.

Alternator put in and the car won't start and dead new battery'


I am taking it you have a new battery. You put on a alternator. Now you need to charge the battery until it is fully charged. That way the car will run for a while before it stalls from undervoltage. With the battery charged check the voltage at the battery. It should be 12 to 13 volts. Now start the car and check the voltage it should be up to almost 14 volts. If that is good check with lights and heater blower on should be at least 13.5 volts. If the voltage does not increase you either have a bad alternator or it is not getting excited by the ignition switch on the vehicle. So you should find the wire that energizes the alternator and turn the key on it should have 12 volts on it. Hope all this helps. please rate my answer so I get points.

I have a 2002 mitsubushi montero sport. The brake/battery light won't go off. I replaced the battery yesterday and car starts and stays running but lights seem a little dim and the dang brake/battery...


CHECK ALTERNATOR DRIVE BELT COULD BE LOOSE NEED ADJUSTING OR GLAZED NEED REPLACING. IF ALL IS GOOD, CHECK ALTERNATOR VOLTAGE OUT PUT AT BATTERY SHOULD BE 13.5 - 14.5 VOLTS. IF NOT ALTERNATOR FAULTY BUT CHECK ALTERNATOR BATTERY FEED AND VOLTAGE REGULATOR WIRES FOR LOOSE CONNECTION OR DAMAGED FRAYED WIRES. CHECK ALTERNATOR FUSE.CHECK THOSE THINGS BEFORE BUYING NEW ALTERNATOR.FIRST TURN OFF RADIO BEFORE DISCONNECTING BATTERY CABLE TO KEEP FROM LOCKING OUT RADIO.
