Have a GMC C7500 medium duty truck in the shop customer

Customer Question

Have a GMC C7500 medium duty truck in the shop customer brought it to me because it was not charging. I tested the alternator and found that it was not charging and Both batteries tested out good as well. I replaced the alternator and still not charging and the small excite wire on the alternator is not getting power so it is not telling the alternator to charge. I checked all the fuses that I could find plus all of the inline ones as well. I am in need of some more Ideas thanks.

Hi there. I could help you with that. What troubles are you having and do you have the fault codes by chance?

Well that's the problem it is not reading the abs at all it's a wabco system and it won't read and the light won't come on and go out

Hi, Sorry for the delay. I got called out on the road for an emergency. Verify your powers and grounds to the ABS ECU to see if this is why it wont do a flash code. If there is power and ground but not functioning and the harness checks out okay the ECU is bad. Check for corrosion and damage in the harness and for power/ground at the module. click on these links for help.
