The nominal voltage for just about any car is 14.4. you will find though most cars should run 14 to 14.5 13.5 is kinda low but it is still putting out charge.
Do you have diagram of 96 olds 98 putting a belt on an alternator.
the power steering belt is you serpentine belt that is wrapped around your alternator and other pulley and tensioners you need this belt to run the car. go to auto store and ask for assistance putting it on or directions, theyll be happy to help you.
The light is on because the alternator is not putting out the required voltage. Either the belt is broken, loose, or the alternator is defective.
The air ride suspension is probably f**ked up...get it fixed professionally and stop putting fat people in your trunk
Possible reasons your car's alternator is not charging: Drive belt loose or missing Alternator has failed
It reads the amps that the alternator is putting back in the battery.
Code PO412 for your Lincoln means that the engine is currently misfiring, could be due to the timing is off, poor fuel, if your running regular in there, stop!, start putting anything higher then 91 octane, so 91 and up, but i wouldn't go past 93, that's what i run in my 01 continental.
If it is makeing a noise or is not putting out at least 13.5 volts it is bad. Take the car or the alternator to an Auto Parts store and have them load test the alternator to be sure.
Alternator is not putting out a charge.
13.5 to 16 volts.
On an automobile with a 12 volt system the alternator must be putting out from 13.5 âˆ’ 16 volts. If not the alternator is bad.
Mine had an alternator problem not putting out 14 v
Have your alternator tested. They will sometimes do that when they are putting out low outputs at low rpm.
Yes, the job of the alternator is to recharge the battery and run all the electronics when the car is in use. If the alternator is defective and not putting out the required voltage to keep the battery charged it will soon run down.
My advice is to charge the battery with a battery charger before starting the engine. You will be putting a heavy load on the alternator if you allow it to charge a dead battery. This could damage the alternator.

The Alternator is not putting out enough voltage. If you recently replaced the alternator with a "new" remanufactured alternator that one could be bad to your truck somewhere to get it tested.
check the alternator. Use a digital multimeter and with engine running you should have 13-14 volts at the battery. If less than 12.5 Alternator is not charging Also check the amperage the alternator is putting out.
There are about three or four screws around your alternator that u will have to remove, once you do it, you will have to pull on the lower left pulley to remove it, when putting the new alternator in you pull on the same pulley and put the screws back in place
have an alternator, battery, and electrical check to find out what the problem is. battery may not be taking a charge, or the alternator is not putting out enough voltage.
It normally means the alternator is not putting out enough voltage to keep the battery charged and is defective. Can be a loose alternator belt also.
See related link. If it starts squeaking after replacement (or otherwise) you need to make it tighter (common problem with Echo). To do this, you need to first loosen the three bolts on the alternator (two on top, one on bottom) then you can pivot it forward by putting a pry bar between the alternator and the engine and pushing the top of the pry bar back toward the windshield.
The Alternator is located on the bottom half of the engine next to the passenger side front wheelwell. Alternator is easy to locate if car is on lift or ramps. Alternator will have 3 bolts that must be removed. Also you will need to loosen the belt by using a rachet and putting the head in the belt tensioner and rotating. Belt tensioner is located in the front of the engine. You will need to remove the induction system (black plastic tube that connects your intake manifold to air box). After the bolts have been removed you should be able to lower the alternator through the bottom. Reverse the steps to install new alternator. Stock alternator is 110amps, if you have a stereo system or anything electrical hooked up you may want to go with 130amp aftermarket alternator.
