Most likely the brushes have worn down to the point to where they no longer make electrical contact with the slip rings of the rotor. If a Nippondenso alternator, remove the sheetmetal cover, the brush holder is a white plastic block secured by two screws. Remove the holder, unsolder the brush wires (the brushes themselves are carbon/copper blocks). Solder in the leads of the new brushes , allowing enough slack so that the brushes can make contact to the slip rings. Do not forget the brush springs; they slip over the leads and push the brushes against the slip rings. Other less frequent alternator troubles include defective voltage regulator module, defective rectifier assembly, bad diode trio, worn bearings, worn slip rings(very deeply grooved from brushes), short circuited turns in armature or field windings, corrosion of stator core causing swelling with cracking of alternator housing or collapse of stator so that it strikes the rotor. However, by far the most frequent alternator malady is worn brushes. A set costs about $5 at the auto parts store. Drew
