A quick way to check alternator on any vehicle is while engine is running,carefully touch a screwdriver to the spinning part (armature) of the alternator. If it is magnatized, it is charging. If not then alternator is not charging. The voltage regulator (the thingy that tell the alternator to charge) is built into the alternator. Replace the whole thing with a rebuilt unit.

Output of the alternator is controlled by the voltage regulator.

The alternator on a 95 Chevy Lumina 3.4l is replaced by disconnecting the wiring harness, loosening the retaining bolts, and removing the serpentine belt. The alternator can then be unbolted, removed, and a new alternator installed.

have the alternator and the battery checked

An alternator does not need a gauge to work. It is used to monitor the output of the alternator.

The alternator (or generator) of a vehicle is the unit that converts the mechanical energy from the drive-belt into electricity. Amperage (amps) are the output level of the alternator. Alternator part number, as well as output amps are specific to each vehicle.Another AnswerYour question is a little like asking, "How long is a length of string?"! The rated output current of an alternator depends on its rated output power rating and its rated terminal voltage. The rated output power can vary tremendously, according to the physical size of the machine.

On a 95 Lumina, it is on the back side of the motor, left side when you are looking at it. to the right and lower than the alternator.

Should be by the alternator in the back

There's a couple of answers to this post if you search.

the regulator is getting bad in the alternator

Hopefully you mean a 1992 Lumina, and yes, most starters are standard.

An ammeter. It measures the electrical current output.

Low alternator output or weak ground connection. Have the alternator checked.

I have a 2.0 1995 Mercury mystique the battery charge light was on no output on old alternator. Replaced alternator No output from new alternator "charge light out" (wiggle test wires& re-check wires) at alternator *still no output* is there a fuse that could be the problem or just another bad alternator... I would check the alternator plug before getting another alternator, it may be bad. And is a lot cheaper to replace.

The intake to Alternator...This is what I have found out.

on my 1992 lumina z34 its about 5 inches from top on passenger side of car directly below radiator fill spout

I was driving down the road and my car lights went dim and my 1992 lumina started to lose power.

The alternator is not adjustable. The computer controls the voltage output.
