We are starting to look at the 2004 Short passenger van WD5PD144845649447.
It is hot today in Eugene. Currently it is 93 degrees outside. My wife just drove the van about a mile to pick up some eggs. This was the first time it had been driven today so it should not have had time to overheat. When started the van to come home the dash warning lights lit all at once. The radio shut off. The A/C compressor stopped working and the air that was blowing out became hot as the outdoors.
The van kept itself in 1st gear. She rolled down the electric windows and turned the heat on full to protect the engine just in case. It was not showing overheating.
When she got home, we plugged in a voltage meter to the cigarette lighter and it reads 17 volts! You can hear the battery
cooking and off gassing.
We pulled the long list of codes and then reset and got the same ones again. Here are the complete printouts:
I'm guessing that the over voltage is causing all the errors. Am I on the right track?
I have a spare 150 Amp Bosch Alternator
that I have been meaning to swap out.
What else can cause this over voltage? Where should I look?
