The alternator on a 2001 Nissan Sentra is replaced by loosening the serpentine belt tension, loosening the alternator bolts, and slipping the belt off the pulley. The alternator can then be unbolted, the wiring harness disconnected, and a new alternator put in place.
To remove the alternator on 1988 Honda CRX the negative battery must first be disconnected. The belt needs to be loosen and the mounting bolts need to be removed as well. When unmounted the alternator will slide off, and a new unit can be replaced.
A/C Won't Work After Alternator ReplacementEither this is an unusual coincidence, OR the person changing the alternator inadvertently disconnected some of the A/C wiring [like a harness connector], OR damaged one the wires in the A/C circuit.The A/C compressor has a wire to supply current to it to engage the A/C clutch, and if that wire is disconnected, cut or broken, then the A/C clutch cannot engage.
It just happened to me a couple days ago..I found that my alternator belt broke and had to be replaced.
The regulator is in the engine computer not the alternator.
The computer only resets when the battery is removed. The alternator just charges the battery, so if the battery is left connected when the alternator is replaced, the computer should not reset.
We replaced the alternator on 2 different vehicles. It was around $175 for each.
Inside the alternator
Inside the alternator, some are easily replaced and some are soldered in place.
In most cases an alternator will last well over 100,000 miles
Loosen the tensioner bolt on your 1997 Kia alternator. Move the alternator to the left. The alternator belt will become loose and can be replaced.
Remove the wiring harness from the back of your 1995 Chrysler LHS alternator. Remove the alternator belt. Remove the alternator retaining bolts. The alternator will come off and can be replaced with the new alternator.
The 1995 Infinity alternator can be replaced by removing the alternator belt. Removing the wiring harness from the back of the alternator. Removing the alternator retaining bolts. Put the new alternator on and reverse the process.
The alternator tell, can be replaced by loosening the tensioner pulley. With the tensioner pulley loose the belt will easily come off and can be replaced.
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.
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.
Maybe the batter is dead or you got another bad alternator.
Sometimes, but not always, the alternator will whine loudly when it's malfunctioning.
alternator needs to be replaced. battery also might be a problem due to the alternator not charging it
No, because it is built into the alternator.
If the battery is sulfated (or otherwise faulty) to such an extent that it calls for a continuous charge, the alternator never gets a chance to switch off. With the resposibilitiy to run continuously the alternator overheats and eventually fails. Never replace a faulty alternator without also checking the battery.
The best I can recommend is to check the alternator. This did happen to me on another car. When I replaced the alternator it started working fine again and now have 164000mi on it when it happened at 103000mi.
Something can be taxing the work of the alternator, or the alternator can be weak and needs replaced.
Alternator is not charging. Have it tested and/or replaced.
