When the truck is idling at low RPM, the charge supplied by alternator is not sufficient to run truck and charge battery of reverse polarity. Alternator expends majority of amperage toward charging (which never takes) and increase in RPM is required to spin alternator fast enough to accomodate ignition system and charging system in unison.

How does a car battery polarity change into reverse polarity?

Car battery polarity can only reverse if the battery is completely dead and then charged with the neg. and pos. leads of the charger are reversed.

If alternator is hooked up in reverse polarity what happens?

"If you connected the battery in reverse that will certainly fry the alternator and cause damage to any other polarity sensitive components as well. The alternator is NOT suposed to spark, it charges by by generating alternating current which is converted to direct current through a diode pack known as the rectifier, and the voltage is regulated by some more electronic wizardry called (amazingly enough) a regulator. Normally when alternators go wrong the charging warning light will glow, and you will get the wrong readings from your voltmeter (if your car has one)."

Can you get -5Volts as output when polarity is reversed?

yes.you can get 5v output even when the polarity is reversed. In a 5v battery, if u reverse the polarity, then u'll get the same 5v as output , but in the opposite direction.(i.e.,)-5v(negative 5 volt
