Re: Good alternator not charging... whats wrong?
Oh man I hope its that easy... Also, when I got the alternator tested...the machine tested 3 things...(can't remember each), anyway, the diode test was one of them and it came back as "N/A". I thought that this was odd, so I had them test a reman. one that they had for sale. It tested "N/A" for the diode too. These are externally regulated...Does a externally reg. alternator have a internal diode? Or do I have a external diode somewhere?? Is my battery going to need checked since shorted the alt?
If one of my diodes are bad then I shouldn't be getting 12v back to the battery... which wire would I check for alternator output? I did read the sticky but it'd be easier if you'd point out the exact wire I should be looking testing... Thanks for all the help...
