I have already pulled the hot wire off of the alternator and put the red lead on the alternator and to ground and had nothing. Then I took it up to Advance Auto Parts and it tested good. Also, I do not have a battery warning light coming on after replacing the alternator, however I did have the battery warning light on with the old alternator

12.25 volts
Ford Mechanic: kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 11 months ago

With the engine off, unplug the alternator and test the orange wire with a light blue strip and the black wire with a orange strip wires please and tell me what the voltages are for them.

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
the plug that plugs in has a green wire with a red strip and a yellow wire with a white stripe and a black wire with a white stripe that is a small separate plug that plugs in next to it
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
ok...never mind....please refund my money....I'm taking it to a shop. Too much lag of communication
Ford Mechanic: kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 11 months ago

I need to know what the voltage is on the yellow wire with the white strip, and the big wire that is bolted to the back of the alternator please.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
