No, because it is built into the alternator.
Connect a voltmeter across the battery terminals without engine running reading should be around 12.8 With engine running reading should be 13.8-14.2 if you are getting these numbers alternator is charging battery
With the engine running, test the voltage of the battery using a voltmeter. You SHOULD be getting anywhere from 13.5 to 14.5 volts if the alternator is functioning properly. Turn on the headlights and rear window defroster and make sure you can hold the voltage level (you'll need someone to keep the engines at about 2000RPM's. If the alternator isn't producing sufficient voltage, you either have a faulty alternator or the replacement was not connected properly.
Since you replaced the battery and alternator, you must have had a problem before. Did you run a voltmeter on the battery while the engine is running? Should have around 14 volts. If you are getting around 14 volts, you can assume that the lite might be faulty. If you are getting say, 12 to 13 volts, then the alternator might be faulty, yes even sometimes rebuilt ones. Check all the wires to make sure there is good contact, also if you still have the problem, then you might have a broken wire ( somewhere ). Good luck
Loose or corroded connections or the battery has a dead cell and will not accept a charge and must be replaced.
I have a 2.0 1995 Mercury mystique the battery charge light was on no output on old alternator. Replaced alternator No output from new alternator "charge light out" (wiggle test wires& re-check wires) at alternator *still no output* is there a fuse that could be the problem or just another bad alternator... I would check the alternator plug before getting another alternator, it may be bad. And is a lot cheaper to replace.
you may have a bad battery or a bad voltage regulator
big job requires a lift as it comes out the bottom and i have replaced many radiators that novices have ripped a hole in getting the alt. out
did you try the control module or the switch just behind the dash on top of the steering column
The alternator is not charging the battery, therefore, the coil is getting it's charge only from the battery.
you do not have a carburetor on a 97 jeep wrangler. check your fule pump (it is in the gas tank)
Check for a bad fusable link at alternator
Ignore the in-dash gauge. Find a good, well calibrated voltmeter, start the engine and test the voltage at the battery. If you're getting somewhere near 13.5 Volts with the engine just off idle, don't worry about it. If it's UNDER 12 Volts, you probably don't have a connection from the keyswitch to the alternator.
yes if one of the wires was getting an earth from the alternator cover or rubbing off the engine the battery light is really an alternator light warning you that the alternator is not charging the battery
Somepeople thinks so but they will never be replaced.
i have checked the alternator and it is good but i am not getting juice how do i check to see if the alternater is sending power to the SBEC?
depends on what way you are testing it but you either have a bad connection between the alternator and the battery or your battery is bad and cant hold the charge what voltage are you getting
re check the two wire connector to alternatorDid you check the Battery connections? Typically, you want to replace the battery with a new one when you replace the alternator. Are you getting any messages in your message center? Stuff like "check Charging System"?What voltage is the battery sitting at with the motor running and the lights on?did you consider the alternator might be bad? Yes, I know, new alternator, but that doesn't mean it's always 100% good.
The alternator is not getting power? At any of the wires or just the main/largest one? If you are testing the large wire, this is the output side that runs to the battery. If there is no power in this wire where it connects to the alternator it must have a bad connection at the alternator or at the battery or a break somewhere in between. If there is power there, I would look at the fuses.
You need to check if the ALTERNATOR is giving the correct output so as to charge the battery. By having a volt meter across the batery terminals one can then rev the engine and the voltage accross the battery should be about 13.8 volt indicating that the Alternator is charging the battery. If this 12 volt bateery voltage does not increase, this indicates a charging problem (mostly with the alternator either the brushes or one of the diodes in the alternator).
He was supposed to get replaced in new moon but didnt :P
When my battery kept dying on mines I have the same make and model. First I kept getting it recharged it still kept dying then I got someone to look at it and it was my alternator when I replaced that it did just fine.
You put a "load"on the engine; the alternator is energized, getting power from the engine in order to produce electricity.
the regulator is getting bad in the alternator
Your Jeep Wrangler is not getting the proper amount of gas if it stalling when you come to a complete stop. This could be your fuel pump, fuel lines, or the intakes.
