It would be best to remove the alternator and take it to an electrical shop.
Check for any lose connections, wires, exc.
Well in the tropics it would have little affect.
no if your battery light is on and the brake light on then your alternator need to be change
Only when it fails. 250,000 miles would be average.
i paid 218 including alternator and labr. 159 for alternator and 45$ labor+ tax.
Bad Battery. Bad Alternator. Lights left on by mistake. Something left running. Exc.
If it is a gas golf cart it has an alternator and if it is electric you have no need for an alternator. An alternator would require more power to turn that it would return to the batteries. So, you would get less distance out of the cart with an alternator installed. That is why electric carts do not come equipped with an alternator.
your alternator my be going out
take it to a mechanic!!!! would cost too much to do it yourself, and if you messed it up.....
wires from the starter to the harness are touching
I would only think one at the most. Alternators are easy.
There is no fuse for an alternator.
As often as the alternator fails... ;)The alternator is not a 'consumable' type of part that requires routine maintenance/replacement - like a serpentine belt, brake pads, etc.Many repair shops and auto parts stores offer inexpensive or free alternator & battery testing.Be sure to test before replacing!NOTE: it is a little known fact that a weak or failing battery is a major contributor to premature alternator death. Any battery that is 4 years old is a prime candidate for replacement.See "Related Questions" below for information on how-to replace Taurus / Sable alternators
An expedition would be a trip, journey, or travel.
You would probably toast the diodes in the alternator.
i just don't want to be scammed, thanks
to change the one below alternator you need to take belt off take alternator out and bracket to get at it. the tensioner pulley you need to take belt off loosen the three bolt on assembly the pulley itself has reverse threads on it it would be a good idea to change both of them
I would suggest that the diode bank in the alternator has failed.... Would suggest that you have the alternator services (in UK tis about £30 I would suggest that the diode bank in the alternator has failed.... Would suggest that you have the alternator services (in UK tis about £30
over charging or bad bearings its about to let you stranded change it
You can if you plan to convert all of your electrical system, starter, lights, gauges and accessories to 24 also. And change your battery to 2 batteries connected in series. Why would you want to??
Changing an alternator in a northstar requires removing the intake manifold,as it is under there. I would suggest getting a service manual for all the details. Good luck Almost but not quite true. Under the intake manifold is the starter not the alternator!!!
The normal method for controlling output of an alternator is to vary the field current. In a PM alternator, there would be no field windings to control. The only way I could think of would be to vary the speed of rotation. This might work if the output was rectified (DC), but would be a problem if the output is AC, since the frequency would also change. I have not seen a PM alternator per se. Unusual.
There is no 95 Expedition. The first year was '97.
No, not an alternator itself. A slipping belt driving the alternator and the water pump could though.
