* Voltage Regulator * Defective Battery * Dirty Battery Post Connections * Alternator/Generator problems
yes if the alternator isnt charging the battery correctly then it couldnt be sending ecu false signals when my alternator was playing up , my central locking my hazards interior light and rear wiper stopped working
Dead battery, car will not start
Try an ignition switch.
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.
Yes, the alternator provides electrical energy to keep the battery charged. If the alternator isn't functioning, the battery will discharge and there will be insufficient electrical energy to operate the ignition and other electrical components. Understand that a battery is only an electrical STORAGE device. Electrical energy is produced by the alternator. The function of the battery is to provide electrical energy for NEXT time you want to start the engine. Once the engine is started, the alternator must take care of all electrical requirements of the vehicle as well as for providing enough additional electrical energy to replace electrical energy to the battery that was last used when the engine was started.
yes it can. i had a 2004 ford mustang that kept reading that the camshaft position sensor was the cause. Changed the cps and still same code. changed alternator and the code cleared itself!
The main cause of battery drains is a bad electrical system. The electrical system is normally powered by the alternator and once the alternator goes bad the battery has a hard time holding a charge,
YesFirst if the starter is bad the car will not start, if it will not start it can not charge the battery.If the starter will not work it can mean there is an electrical problem that will also prevent the alternator from charging the batteryThe starter itself CAN NOT CAUSE CHARGING PROBLEMS!The extra load on the battery can ruin the battery and that can ruin the alternator. But before that NO.
Yes, If the system is over charging because the regulator is bad in the alternator. Other things will cause problems as well. Bad grounds, corrosion, loose connections, name a few. get the system tested and get it fixed. Solve the problem now before it becomes something worse.
it could do
No likely but possible if coolant is leaking out onto some electrical component.
Do statins cause problems with the hearts natural electrical rhythim if one has enough CoEnzymeQ10?
Yes, any extra electrical load will cause the alternator to work harder which will cause the engine to have to work harder which will use more gas.
Refrigerators are used to keep food chilled. Like any electrical appliance, they cause environmental problems due to the energy they use.
The positive cable between the alternator and the battery has an open circuit or break. There also is a set of wires that plug into the alternator that turns it on when the car is running. Wiring problems here can cause a alternator not to charge on the vehicle but works fine on a test stand. Some cars the alternator light in the dash causes the alternator to kick in when the engine is started. A burned out light in the dash causes the alternator not to charge.
There are a few issues that can cause starting problems in the Kia Sephia. Some include a bad or drained battery, faulty starter, or a bad alternator.
Check the alternator.
1. Low on freon.. 2. Electrical problems.. 3. Computer problems.. 4. Sensor or relay problems..
You could have ignition problems if it is the engine causing the jerk.
could be anything. Take to a credited electrical shop. They specialize in headaches.
