It is built into the alternator.
The voltage regulator on a 1989 Chevy Camaro is inside of the alternator. If you are having issues, such as flickering lights, you might have to replace the entire alternator.
Regulator is in the alternator
bad alternator/voltage regualtor
The alternator has a built in voltage regulator.
It's internal, inside the alternator.
Apparently the alternator is bad or the battery is shot, take the car to autozone and get a free charging system check.
It's inside the alternator, if yours is bad replace the alternator or tear the alternator apart and replace the regulator.
you've got your wires crossed on your starter,
disconnect battery. remove electrical connections from alternator. remove serpentine belt. remove alternator mounting bolts and remove alternator. Installation is reverse of removal.
There is a voltage regulator located on the internals of you alternator replace the altenator. Voltage regulator keeps voltage constant and stops spikes in power output, this is what is causing your headlights to blow.
Check the battery and alternator. In hot weather we tend to use more juice from the battery because we run a stereo and the A/C.

remove negative battery cable. remove electrical connectors from alternator. remove belt. remove bolts holding alternator, I believe there are two, then remove the alternator. Installation is reverse. very easy job.
If you are 100% sure the alternator is good, then either the wiring or the battery are bad. If the battery has a dead cell it will not hold a charge. Disconnect the battery cables and clean the connections. Charge the battery with a battery charger, and then connect the cables. If the battery is over 3 years old, it is more than likely bad.

Likely a inline type (fuseable link wire) look for a section of wire usually near the battery that is discolored or try to stretch the wire they can burn off or break internaly, test this wire at back of alternator with test light and engine and key off, you should have power at the output terminal as long as the battery cables are connected.
usually if a computer fails repeatedly it is faulty ignition coil or alternator. also try replacing ecm fuse.
Around 45.00 re manufactured.
If you can get at it, disconnect your battery and go for it, Basicaly the same procedure but with a serpentine belt and auto tensioner i presume.
Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird from the years 1993 - 1995.
Check the positive battery cable for worn insulation. A bare wire can touch the frame where it leads the starter. Cable just moves a little and shorts out. This happened on a different year camaro. Having sudden battery and alternator problems too? Same answer. cause ur dumb
It would be best to remove the alternator and take it to an electrical shop.
one is most places test for free. but the easy at home way to check is get your car jump started if its not starting on its own. after its running, pull the negative off the battery taking special car not to arc your wrench on anything. if its keeps running, alternator is good. if it dies, get it replaced. if the alternator is bad, it may have killed the battery, so get it tested and replaced if needed.
Your battery is going bad and something may be draining the battery. If you have a weak battery, it will lose charge. The car charges your battery when you run it and if you dont run it, it will go dead. If your car dies while running, in that case you might need a new alternator.
