Hi Sean. Transit Connect, 2005, 90 hp diesel. battery warning lamp comes on after running the enging 30 sec. I have ohmed the Three wires to the alternator to be ok. Before starting the engine 12,7 V on the battery. After starting the engine, still 12,7 V until the warning lamp lights up. Then the Votage rise to 13,5.

Hi there BR Steiner , good morning to you and sorry for the delayed response
Ok if the smart charge wiring has been inspected (insulation removed and wires visually checked and tugged slightly ) as these small looms are very prone to corrosion
If these 3 wires are ok between the alternator and triangle multiplug on the fan shroud then the fault will lie with the regulator inside the alternator (poor smart charge signal /command )
When I install a new alternator to this year of connect I always replace the small loom at the same time to prevent any further battery light issues that could occur in the future (for customer satisfaction )
This small loom is avaiable seperarly
If you need the part number or prices for the loom or alternator please let me know
