Is the alternator output going to the battery and battery voltage ,running is over 13 volts? If not the alternator may is not being energized on the field terminal, and will have no output. It will stay at battery voltage. It has to increase at least one volt from battery off, to engine running. We are assuming this is battery voltage problem, and not a bad connection.

The voltage out put is 14 volts
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 5 years ago

Does voltage drop when the battery light comes on? If not, it is not voltage problem. Loose connection or damage to wire harness.
