Answers :

You dont. Alternators DO NOT require polarisation as they can only be fitted to vehicles that are wired as NEGATIVE EARTH. If you have replaced the Alt, reconnect the wiring, reconnect the battery - Positive lead first then the negative lead, then start the motor !!\015\012Using multimeter, check the charge rate at the battery. It should be around 13.8 volts. The charge rate SHOULD NOT go above 14.7 volts and if it does, turn the motor off immediately and recheck the connections, especially any battery voltage sensing wires. if nothing appears to be wrong, contact an auto electrician and have them check things out. I have known faulty regulators, even in new Alternators..

Hi, How can I troubleshoot whether I have a bad alternator, voltage regulator or battery in a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 Pick up? This truck runs fine with a new battery for a while and then eventually won't start at all. It makes me think it is either the alternator or v-regulator. I read that the v-regulator is in the computer and not in the alternator in this model. Is that hard to change or expensive to replace? How can I tell which is the fault? Thanks, Steve


Best way to test this is to crank the engine, then with it running remove the positive battery terminal. If the motor dies, it's the alternator. Take the alternator off and take it to autozone. They do a free alternator check which will let you kn ... 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD

I have a problem with my Ford Focus 2004 TDDi. The charge light came on and overnight the battery completely discharged. I figured it must be the alternator so I repaired the alternator using a voltage regulator and brushholder (new) taken from a new alternator for a Ford Fiesta (I think). When I refitted it the charging light still stayed on. I cleaned the multiplug where it goes through the bulkhead to the PCU and the charge light now goes out but the headlights now flicker and it seems that

I am having a problem with the voltage system in the Rodeo I just bought. We replace the Alternator and Battery with new ones yesterday and still today the same problem occurs and it will not run unless jumped. It is not maintaining high enough voltage when running or provides way too much in high gears (all the way to 16 volts). There was a recall on these years ago for a Voltage Regulator, but according to dealerships that was inside the Alternator and with a new Alternator it should be workin

Im having a voltage regulator problem on my 96 ford explorer(V8 XLT). I've replace my alternator twice already and the same problem is occurring, voltage regulator failed. Obviously it's draining my battery. When I'm driving, the battery gauge bounces, then stays steady at a low position, then all of a sudden it jumps back up. I've inspected the wires and they seem fine, I've also had the alternator tested before I purchased it and it passed, the battery is brand new and i also replaced the star

Hello. My 1993 Mercury Grand Marquis died on the highway after the battery "alternator?" light coming on about 20 minutes prior. We replaced the alternator with a rebuilt and the light is STILL ON. Car starts with a boost, but dies shortly after. Took the rebuilt alternator out, went back to same mechanic and he rebuilt my original alternator and supposidly put on a new voltage regulator. Put it in car...LIGHT STILL ON. We are stumped. What could the problem be?
