If the alternator belt needs to be replaced in a 1999 Nissan should other belts be checked?
Your probably going to have only one serpentine belt, and that will take care of it. If there is a chance that you do have more than one belt, then the rule of thumb is to replace them all at the same time.
You replaced the battery and alternator on a 1997 Chevy k2500 and it is not charging already checked the wires is ther a fuse or something?
What would cause battery light to stay on in a 1998 ford taurus. I have had the alternator checked and was told it was good.I have replaced the battery and still battery light stays on?
have the alternator checked. Answer You can check the alternator yourself with a multi-meter/ voltmeter. Start your car and rev to about 1500 rpm, touch the meter positive lead to the b-lead on the alternator, and the meter negative lead to the alternator case, or any good ground. You should read 13 to 14 volts, anything less than about 12.5v, and you've probably got a bad set of diodes and need a new alternator.
I have your answer for you. I talked to Nissan about this before. First of all, the 2001 Nissan Pathfinder doesnt have a timing belt. It has a timing chain. And Nissan doesnt set a life to these components. It is pretty much ment to last a long time and when it does go. then you need to replace it. Sounds odd but that is what the mechanic at Nissan told me. when it goes…
What should you check if the belt will not turn the alternator after replacing the alternator in a 96 Nissan 4x4 truck?
Well it could be the external regulator on the right side of the engine compartment or a bad alternator . First I would have the battery checked to verify the battery is good but only after fully charging it , then try replacing the regulator first because its cheapest and if the alternator is in fact bad it should be replaced with the alternator anyway. If the regulator doesn't help then It's probably safe to…
I recently installed a new stereo system into my car now my car sounds like my battery is weak is it my battery that I have to change or my alternator?
Check the battery with a vom meter while the engine is running. It should read about 14.5 volts and if so the alternator is working, than have the battery checked Now if the meter does not read 14.5 volts, have the battery, and the alternator checked. If they both check out okay, the problem is in the battery or the alternator circuit on the vehicle.
How does a car break the alternator bracket. I have a 1995 Chevy Astro Van and it has broken the alternator bracket twice in about a week or 2. I replaced it and it broke again. How does this happen?
do you mean the aluminum bracket holding the alternator broke at the bolt holes? do you know that there should be a steel bracket BEHIND the alternator also? when engine usually replaced, sometimes this steel bracket is not replaced and instead a shorter bolt is used to fasten alternator (3 bolts) to aluminum bracket. there should be a longer bolt which goes from the front of the alternator on the left side, thru the alternator…
93 Pontiac Bonneville replaced Alternator twice New battery new belt and new cables and it still isn't charging What needs to be checked or replaced now?
Check ground on engine. While the engine is running, if you have a set of jumper cables handy, run it from the ground on battery (-) to the metal somewhere on the engine (that don't move). You should hear the alternator start charging as there will now be a load on it. To verify that it is working you can look at the gauge. It should now be very close to the 14 volts. This…
