That's certainly possible. The best way to diagnose a problem like that would be to go to one an auto parts retailer such as Auto Zone, Kragen or whomever is in your area. Most provide free ignition system diagnostics in hopes that you'll buy your parts from them. They should be able to detect an alternator problem, loose belt, bad tensioner, old, tired battery or whatever your problem might be. Then you can get the parts and repair it yourself.

What does check charging system in a 2007 Ford Taurus mean and the battery light is on and the steering wheel won't turn?

Usually the voltage regulator is the problem. Its located inside the alternator. More testing is needed to make sure that the regulator is the fault. If you want to guess. Replace the alternator. Sounds to me like the power steering and alternator belt has fallen off.

Why does the idle on my 2009 Toyota Camry reduce when the fan is on?

The current needed to operate the cooling fan(s) puts a load on the alternator which causes the idle rpm to drop a little. Have the battery and charging system tested to be sure there isn't a problem.

How much it cost to replace Alternator is Nissan Maxima 2001 GLE Dealer told you that you have to replace the alternator How can you make sure that it is really needed to be replaced?

Depending on where you live, you MAY be able to find a local auto parts retailer that has the ability to test your alternator. They generally test the entire charging system and do not charge for the service since they're trying to get you to buy parts from them. You're right to not trust the dealer, their mechanics are paid partially by commission and tend to want to replace as many parts as they can.

How does the alternator and the air compressor work together?

THere isn't really any connection between the alternator and the compressor except that they are both driven by the belt. The alternator generates electricity for the vehicle, and the compressor uses electricity to power the clutch that turns the compressor shaft. I can't think of any other connection. They don't actually work together as if they were part of the same system. The alternator system, and the AC system are two separate systems that do not depend on each other to function, other than the fact that the compressor uses some electricity for the clutch, but if the alternator stops charging, the car's battery would supply the voltage needed until it runs down.

What does the four pin plug on the alternator of a 1991 Pontiac le mans do?

The 91 LeMans has a Delco CS121 alternator. The four pins (labeled P-L-F-S) function as follows. The P terminal is connected to the stator and can generates a half-rectified voltage when the alternator is operating. The L pin is connected to the battery Light on the dash board to illuminate the indicator if the alternator is not charging the battery. The F terminal is connected to the field and can be used to drive a tachometer. The S terminal is for the remote sense. If connected, the alternator will put out whatever voltage at the terminal is needed to give 14.5 volts at wherever the end of the sense wire is connected to the wiring harness (useful where there are a lot of loads and/or voltage sensitive accessories).

How do you change an alternator on a 1984 celebrity?

To change an alternator: 1. Remove the battery ground wire. 2. Unplug or disconnect the wires to the alternator. 3. Loosen the adjuster bolt and if needed the mounting bolt so the alternator will move to the side to take the drive belt off. 4. Take out the bolts and lift out the alternator. Installation is the reverse of the above. Be sure to adjust the belt to proper tension.


How do you calculate the size of a car power inverter to power a small space heater?

Regardless of the size needed by the heater, the car's alternator will be the limiting factor. If you oversize the inverter to more than the alternator can handle you may burn out the alternator. Heaters consume allot of amperage.

After proper tension is achieved tighten the upper and lower alternator mounting bolts you loosened earlier.


How to control Battery voltage?

In an automobile the battery voltage is controlled by a regulator unit wired along with the battery. It limits voltage and protects lamps as well as electronic devices from higher voltages obtained when a fresh battery is charged to its full capacity. A battery is usually rated at 12 volts but when charged it may have a voltage of 12.6 to 13.2V. A regulator is also needed during charging by the alternator since at higher RPMs the alternator may deliver voltages in excess of 17 to 18 volts.
