What is a function of a rectifier?
The Rectifier is an electronic device, which converts an AC waveform(Usually a Bi-directional waveform with Zero Average value) to a Pulsating DC waveform (Uni-directional waveform with Nonzero Average value). As AC wave (Sinusoidal) has two half cycles, namely - Positive Half cycle & Negative Half cycle If a Rectifier does it's operation only in one half of the cycles, it is known as Half Wave Rectifier. Similarly, If a Rectifier does it's operation in both the half cycles, it is known as Full Wave Rectifier.

CHECK OUT THIS LINK TO A FORUM, IT ADDRESS' YOUR PROBLEM. MIGHT BE A GOOD PLACE TO START.. http://x.nissanhelp.com/forums/altima/4647-engine-code-p1126.html
I changed the thermostat and the light is still on.Now the code is saying throttle relay.I was told it may be engine temp sensor,but it seems to be a different code.

Alternating sources of AC and DC power
Rectifying is correcting or solving a problem. For example if your car engine was broken, you would take it to a garage to rectify the the problem.
is a device that smoothen your half-wave rectification into a full-wave rectification after using a 4 diode and 1 resistor , after adding a capacitor , there will be a almost …steady output , it charges the capacitor when is forward biased which is the first half wave , and discharge when is reverse biased to stablelize the wave into a almost same potential difference compare to a.c
The indicater meter is a DC device, so the rectifier changes AC to DC. A meter could not respond to AC.
A rectifier turns the Alternating Current (AC) produced by the Alternator into Direct Current (DC) that your car uses.
usually to convert AC to DC.

By returning a value. Or using type 'void'.
A rectifier can convert AC to pulsating DC.
Imagine a sine wave. It is a wave that has both a positive and negative component that varies continuously over time. For most power applications in the USA this rate is 60 he…rtz or 60 cycles per second. A half-wave rectifier just removes the negative part of the wave so now you have a positive hump for a period of time and then zero for the same period and then positive and so forth. For a full-wave you just flip the negative hump positive so you have positive hump followed by positive hump and on and on. A half-wave rectifier allows only one half cycle to pass. In some cases this may well be the positive excursion, as stated above, but it can be connected the other way round so that only the negative excursion passes. It depends, of course, on whether you want positive or a negative d.c. (relative to your circuit/system common).
The function of 4 diodes in a bridge full wave rectifier is to make the output unidirectional and to increase the efficiency of output
The capacitor follows the rectifier to smooth the DC output. It hasa safety resistor in parallel to discharge it safely when it isturned off. The resistor value can be chosen …produce a giventime-constant, e.g. a 1000 uf capacitor might have a 3k3 resistoracross, which gives a 3.3 second time-constant. The capacitor isthen discharged to 1% voltage in 5 time-constants, 16.5 seconds inthis case.
The same as in any rectifier circuit: allow current to flow in onlyone direction through the rectifier, thereby converting AC to DC.
