Hi, my name is ***** ***** you have a test light or volt meter?
are you at the vehicle now?
ok, this is going to be either a bad alternator, or a bad PCM, the main computer, its usually a bad alt, to test it , disconnect the 2 wire connector at the alternator, and turn the key on, the red wire at the connector should have battery voltage, then start the car, and check the brown/grey wire at the connector, if it has voltage when running, then you have a bad alternator, if the brown/grey wire does not have voltage, then the PCM is bad, the PCM has the voltage regulator built into it, but the most common problem is the alternator,Tim

most of the time, its a bad alternator, but we have also replaced the PCM for this concern, usually it s the alternator 80% of the time,Tim
Yes, if the voltage regulator is bad, then the rest of the computer will work fine but the driver for the voltage regulator will be ba, and hr alt will not charge, but the res of the computer will work fine,Ttim
