that plug one wire goes to the power on the alternator the other goes jumbled up into the main wire harness. I don’t see it plug into something. It doesn’t seem to be charging because the voltage dropped a little more to about 12.33

Hi

That diode will keep it from charging

someone may have cut the other end off and spliced

Ok so follow it into the harness and see where it’s cut then or plugged in? I just want to make sure I’m following the right one. I might sound stupid.It’s the wire sensor looking thing that plugs into the prongs on the orange part of the alternator. One of the wires from it is attached right on the alternator positive terminal and the other I need to follow and find where it is goingCorrect?

Hi

Yes the orange is the voltage regulator

that plug that plugs into it, is the diode harness

I’m glad it went well. Thermoking worked out. We swapped out the thermoking alternator with a 95 Chevy impala. Put the reverse fan blade on it and then wired it so it works. Cheaper on the compressor and it’s 140amp. So far so good. Ran it about 6 hours.

I have an FMI 12/SPN 5848 code. I'm aware of what this code
I have an FMI 12/SPN 5848 code. I'm aware of what this code is.... but my question is regarding whether this is an active or inactive code. The MIL light is on and the fault is shown on my SmartNav, BUT I don't have an “!” or “1” in the status indicator display. Because the status indicator display isn't showing anything I'm hoping that this is an inactive fault that will either clear after key cycles or time. If it's active I'm told by Peterbilt that the engine may derate 50%. It was only after I hung up with them that it occurred to me that this fault might not be active and I may be able to finish my run (1500 more miles) before I get it serviced. The truck is a 2014 Peterbilt 386, 2013 Cummins 550 ISX. … read more
