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.
I replaced the water filter about two weeks ago. Everything worked fine for about a week. Now it does not cool
If your battery is not fully functioning and needs to be replaced, it can make the alternator work harder. This could cause a brand new alternator to go bad. Check your battery, if the battery is not the issue, return the alternator, it should have a warranty on it for at least the first 30 days.
Check the voltage level from the alternator. Overvoltage is about the only thing that can "fry" a battery. If the voltage is much above 14.5 V, the regulator INSIDE the alternator has failed. The only choice is to replace the alternator.
do you mean the aluminum bracket holding the alternator broke at the bolt holes? do you know that there should be a steel bracket BEHIND the alternator also? when engine usually replaced, sometimes this steel bracket is not replaced and instead a shorter bolt is used to fasten alternator (3 bolts) to aluminum bracket. there should be a longer bolt which goes from the front of the alternator on the left side, thru the alternator and thru that steel bracket and into part of engine?? this part not clearly understood as explained to me by mechanic husband. he had the same problem and corrected when bracket kit purchased from local Chevy dealer; about $197 in Hawaii. hope this bit helps...
short in electorical system
if you alternator was locked up .it caused it to jump time. my car done the same thing last week ,now i have to re time it.
I also have had trouble with my battery and alternator with my 92 Cabriolet. If the car sits for a couple of days the battery will be so dead the car won't start. I have replaced both parts more than once with no change. I don't have an answer for you but wonder if there is some problem with this year of the Cabriolet.I have an 83 Cabriolet that has the same issues. My alternator is fine, it's been replaced twice and checked 3 times so it's not the alternator itself. Check the wiring, especially grounds, it's a good idea to replace them if they are originals, they easily could be the culprits. Also it might very well be the voltage regulator, if it's not working the way it should it can mess up the juice going into your alternator making it dysfunctional. Check fuses and relays too. All of these are pretty cheap to fix and aren't hard to do yourself. Go to Autozone and have them test your alternator, it's a very good way to finding if something going to your alternator is not working properly.
Something near the belt path, check to see if there are any loose covers touching. Something will have marks from the old belt rubbing it
when you replace the alternater you need to replace the battery There is a moderate rate of defective new or rebuilt alternators and voltage regulators. This can be as much as on in 20 to one in 15. I mention voltage regulators because often later cars have the voltage regulator built into the alternator. I replaced a bum alternator with a rebuilt one, only to find that a week later my battery was low. I replaced the old battery, and all was well for three weeks, when my new battery ran down. Monitoring the battery voltage when the car was running told the tale. The alternator/regulator was only holding the battery up at 13.2V while idling, not the 14V minimum that the service manual specified. Back to the shop for another unit!
NATSI Week used to be the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders Week. It has now been replaced by NAIDOC week
Does it have fuel pressure and spark? Is there a broken timing belt?
yes, next week is fine with me
ask an auto electrician to check the Over Voltage Relay. It lives under the dash above drivers legs. It has a Zennon type regulator and a fuse which can b replaced if its blowen. Its about 50 X 50 X 75mm in size and is silver in colour. Failure of unit can affect many of the electrics in the 300e
You got a sh**ty car. replace it
yes it can I've done it and they acted fine the next week
It's a fine day. That beach has fine sand. I got a fine for excessive speed last week. Your son's a fine boy.
The dealer security system maybe the root cause of your problems. If the security key is broken, it will shut the gas pump off for good....you will need to replace the on-board engine computer.
wait a week and it should be fine. wait a week and it should be fine.
So far no one has replaced him permanently - instead, they have had extra guests in each week instead of him.
Here is a better way. Instead of removing the engine mount, just slide the fan housing (holds the two electric fans) out of the way. You only have to thumb the two top clips open (no tools required), then lift the housing from its lower supports and slide it several inches away from the alternator (really easy to do). This allows plenty of clearance to remove the alternator and replace it. I changed out the alternator on our 2000 Focus in under an hour. Just replaced mine last week. The hardest part is once the alternator has been disconnected from all its mechanical and electrical connections. It won't come out unless the passenger side engine mount is unbolted ( 3 bolts, 19 mm I think ) and the engine is pried forwards. Once this was done, it was pretty easy. Don't forget to remove the negative battery terminal before starting.
Clean a hedgehog cage once a week and its fine
Yes - it will be fine.
