Hello, The vehicle is a clio 1.9D 1998. Following ignition of the battery indicator in stock and an inability to start, I I searched the problem: restart cables OK. battery voltage 11.5V engine barely turning 12V
->> I take the death of the alternator (and/or regulator). The brushes and commutator were good too.
So I change the alternator with a 80A to the seller on the corner.
reassembling no major concerns except that no more load.
alternator battery cable continuity was verified.
Here I dry.. son The three have been resurfacing - small wire on the + (it Another lug side) - W terminal on - thick cable (can not be wrong.) # where's the catch? I'm interested in any idea !
Hello. See if the wire excitation of the alternator is a 12 volt foune engine running is the little wire that plugs alone. And from there, try unplugging it and putting a battery direct. Otherwise see the son of mass motor, battery,.; ensure they are tight, not cut. A + Jojo37
This is the sequel of events: Following the advice of Jojo, I measured the voltage on the line excitation engine stopped after contact I have no more than directly to the battery -> normal to me. Step 2 -
I am preparing a wire connected to the battery + terminal I start the clio cables then separates the two vehicles. Tension continues down to the battery (the alternator not charging yet). I connect the other end prepared on the terminal of the alternator (taking excitement). -> 14.5V < -> alternator debit.
I do not understand how a direct line would bring more juice to drive the alternator. ??
I also tried to leave a second battery charged in parallel for more than 12V but the alternator does not necessarily charged.
solution let this thread is tempting but should not there be voltage after contact? Is there not a risk to leave the alternator and energized by the battery (discharge, heating, etc.)?
