1999 Chrysler concord 2.7. My battery light came on and had the charging system checked. Was told the alternator was bad so I had it changed. Still doesn't charge. Found blown 20 amp fuse in engine bay fuse box so I replaced it. Now the system charges 15 volts at idle and 17 volts at 2000 rpm. The lights start to flicker so I shut it down.

Hi, my name is ***** ***** the new alternator is charging at 17 volts, then the problem is inside the computer, the ECM , the main computer has the regulator for the alternator built into it, so the ECM will need to be replaced,Tim

Why did the fuse blow. Is this a common issue

the fuse will blow, because it was overcharging, and yes thisis common on these, the fuse blows to protect the other circuits from the voltage spike,Tim

Installed a reman. ecm today and for about 10 minutes it charged 13.0 volts at idle and the battery light stayed off. As soon as I accelerate above 2,000 rpm the light comes on and stays on even though its charging???

and what is the voltage when you rev it up? does it stay at 13.0

No it climbs to 16 and 17 volts

then you most likely have a bad cell in the battery, how old is the battery?

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
