Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hello I will help,
Do you have a voltmeter?
Good, with the engine off do you show 12 volts at the large cable connection on the alternator?
You measure voltage at the alternator with the engine off?
OK, so you have 0 volts at the alternator?
Then the large fuse in the underhood fuse block is blown open. Did you try to jump start this car or another car?
That would blow the main fuse then, can you check it?
The ALT fuse in the lower right corner of the underhood fuse block is what you need to check
That is also the Main fuse on the diagram and is 125 amp.
Check the charring, it is not the alternator, you have blown a fuse. Once you replace it you will have the same reading on the alternator as you do on the battery.
Yes, I think Autozone has one of those
