BAD ALTERNATOR?

August 01, 2005
by: jovial_cynic
I'm not exactly sure what's wrong, but my alternator light keeps blinking. I wired in a blinking LED as a warning system for my alternator, but when I actually run my volt-meter across the system while the engine is running, it appears as though I'm actually doing just fine. I didn't really check the voltage across leads with the previous IR alternator I had -- I wasn't sure how to check it properly, so I just swapped it for the one out of my 720 parts truck. After figuring out how to test it, it appears as though it's working just fine, but that the alternator warning light is staying on. I'm not 100% positive what the problem is, but I've got to trace it down to get that blinking LED to stop.

I tack-welded the exhaust up so I could drive it... I need to weld it up a bit better and then wrap it in "exhaust casting" that'll seal up all the spots I can't get to. Hopefully it holds up well and won't need frequent maintanance.
