It's also possible that the battery is weak. Have the charging system -and- battery tested to ensure that the voltage isn't dropping below specified levels when the engine is at idle. Most alternators are designed not to engage or to begin generating power until the engine RPM's excede a certain value. This is because the alternator imposes quite a load on an engine, and could cause one to stall if engaged at idle. So the car electrical system, including the ignition, is running off of the battery at idle. Usually, the alternator will engage by 1200 RPM.
As little as possible
It is built into the alternator.
Inside the Alternator.
it should have an internally regulated alternator
Inside the alternator. It's a small, solid-state device that is integral to the alternator.
The voltage regulator on all Escorts is inside the alternator. It is an integral part of the alternator and the alternator has to be replaced to fix it.
The regulator is in the engine computer not the alternator.
The voltage regulator on a 1985 corvette is an internal part. This part is housed within the vehicle's alternator.
The voltage regulator in the alternator can cause issues like this when they start to go bad. The voltage regulator is an integrated part of the alternator and cannot be replaced, if it is bad, the entire alternator must be replaced.
No, because it is built into the alternator.
The voltage regulator for a Hyundai Tuscan is on the back of the alternator. It is bolted on and can be replaced separately.
It is probably a bad voltage regulator. Sometimes they are located in the alternator and can go bad in a new one. On Ford vehicle the voltage regulator is separate from the alternator.
The ground cable, on the battery may need to be tightened or cleaned. The alternator voltage regulator may need to be replaced.
The voltage regulator is attached to the vehicles alternator. It can be replaced as a separate unit.
defective voltage regulator
The Voltage regulator in incorporated in the alternator. It must be replaced as a whole. Mobiletec Small Engine Service!
Voltage flows from the alternator not to it. If it is outputting no voltage it is defective.
chances are it's the voltage regulatorit could also be a wire no connected on the alternator
Voltage regulator or loose wire.
check charging system voltage it should have 13.8 ---14.3 volts it alsocould be a bad diode in your alternator most times a new alt does the trick
A short in the turn signal wiring can cause the voltage gauge to fluctuate. A loose ground wire can also cause the gauge to fluctuate.
Check the voltage at the battery with engine running. It should read 13.5 to 15.5 volts. Any less and the alternator is suspect.
It's an electronic unit in he alternator, it can be removed and replaced, you can find it at the back of the alternator.
The voltage regulator is part of the engine computer. That will have to be replaced by the dealer.
