Hi Im David. First thing you need to do is read the voltage at the large cable on the alternator. it should be around 14.4 volts dc......let me know what you get. thanks
the cable to the alternator will probably have a rubber protective cover over the terminal to keep moisture off of it, you can just stick the meters probe right through it. if the battery voltage is only 12-12.5 while running. then your alternator is bad. or the cable between the alternator and battery is bad. that is why its very important to check voltage at the alternator
you wont have a code for a bad alternator. but you should have some kind of battery light that comes on........
no , you can only monitor battery voltage
when you turn the key to the on position and all the indicator lights come on, is one of them saying batt or alt?
I am looking that information up right now
what are you talking about? im not sending any messages on anyones phone..............i would like you to look in the fuse box in the engine compartment there should be a 10 amp fuse for the alternator im trying to find out how it is labeled
it probably says something else like batt 1 or batt 2...im trying to find out
ok. it should say generator
is this what your fuse panel label looks like?
