Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Have you checked the 120A alternator fuse in the engine compartment fuse box?
Hello, my name is***** to see if large wire at alternator has battery voltage with vehicle off. Then check to see if small black/orange wire has voltage with key on. Let me know, thanks.
Does charge light come on if you ground the small black/orange wire with key on?
I agree, it is starting to sound like the aftermarket alternator is the problem but I'd like to make sure the charge indicator is working before recommending replacement again. Ground the small wire that has voltage, let me know if that turns on charge light. Thanks.
Check to see if the 10 amp Cluster fuse on interior fuse box is blown. And check to see if removing fuse drops voltage on small wire. Let me know, thanks.
Does the 10 amp cluster fuse have power with key on?
I'm assuming you are checking small wire at alternator for power with key in on position? Thanks.
Look in fuse box and let me know if you can find the pre exciation resistor.
Is it labeled?
Can you send me a picture of fuse box so I can see layout of resistor? I think resistor may be blown out if you are sure cluster fuse has power but not alternator.
