1) Open the driver's side door. 2) Put the key in the ignition and turn to ON (but don't start the vehicle) 3) Within 7 seconds of turning the key to ON, push the driver's side door switch button (Leave the door open--it's the button that the door pushes when it closes) at least 5 times. 4) The Air Bag light should go solid...give it at least 7 seconds, and it should begin to blink a 3 second, 2 second on/off pattern. 5) Turn ignition to OFF and remove key. 6) Start vehicle, and wait for the Air Bag light to turn off to verify that it worked.
probably it can be changed but if you change the whole alternator you will gain a new alternator for your engine in opposite of changing only the bearing which is not guaranteed.
Unless things have changed, the diodes are part of the alternator. The voltage regulator is attached to the alternator but the diodes are part of the alternator.
It may be blinking because it probably needs to be changed. To change the headlight you will need to open the hood of the car.
The frequency is changed by varying its speed, and the the voltage is changed by varying its field current.
The 2000 Dodge Caravan alternator can be changed by removing the alternator belt. Remove the wiring harness from the back of the alternator. Loosen and remove the alternator retaining bolts. Install the new alternator by reversing the process.
its the baterry
The oil light could be blinking in an Isuzu Rodeo because it is time to get the oil changed. This could also occur if the oil is low.
You probably need to get your oil changed?
Just changed the alternator on my 2000 vw golf and now can't get the alternator belt back on - any suggestions?
The regulator for the 1997 Ford Thunderbird is bolted on the back of the alternator. While the regulator can be changed separately it is more commonly changed along with the alternator.
Check the starter
The alternator on a 1995 Volvo 960 is changed by disconnecting the negative battery post, removing the alternator wiring harness, loosening the retaining bolts, and taking the belt off. The alternator can then be completely unbolted and a new alternator put in its place.
Well before stardoll was changed and everything you could have blinking words on your presentation- but you cannot anymore. Just trust me- it doesn't work. :( Hope I helped- kiki7324 on stardoll
Disconnect the battery. Unplug the alternator and take the belts off. Unbolt the alternator, and bolt the new one in. Put the belts back on it. Plug it back in and reconnect the battery. Voila! You changed your own alternator!
Disconnect the cable from the alternator and see if that stops the draw. If it does, the alternator may be defective. Otherwise there may be something else drawing current.
The alternator on a 92 Nissan Maxima is changed by disconnecting the wiring harness, loosening the retaining bolts, and removing the drive belt. The bolts can then be fully removed and the alternator swapped out.
The 2001 Cavalier has the regulator built into the alternator. As this is an integrated component the alternator and regulator are changed as a single unit.
Probably not. The body style was changed in 1999, and even though they look almost the same, the dimensions for many things are different.
The indicator was not or cant be reset.
The alternator only needs to be replaced when it fails. Its not a part that needs to be changed during routine maintenance. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
yes it can. i had a 2004 ford mustang that kept reading that the camshaft position sensor was the cause. Changed the cps and still same code. changed alternator and the code cleared itself!
Electrical "Problems" Following Replacement of AlternatorUsually this is an indication that the electrical wiring system is "screwed up."Either there was an existing problem, leading to the need to replace the alternator, OR whoever changed the alternator screwed up the wiring.
You need to check and make sure the alternator is charging. You could have gotten a defective one or if you got a used one it may be bad. Get a digital multimeter and with the vehicle off check the voltage at the battery. Should be 12+ volts with a charged battery. Start the vehicle and check the voltage again, should be 13-14 volts or better. If no voltage increase check the big output terminal (thick red wire usually going to it) at the alternator and see it the alternator is putting out voltage. If no voltage other than battery voltage then the alternator is not working. This is assuming that the alternator has an internal voltage regulator (most now do). Without year/make/model/engine size it's very hard to give you decent direction other that generic help :-) **I am assuming you have tested the battery**
it depand on the alternator and the RPM. Personnally, I tested a 14v 65amp yesterday and i was able to get 51volts
I changed your battery?? I don't think so. I think your alternator is your problem!
