Re: how do I tell if I have an internal or external voltage regulator?
So I did some testing.
First off the regulator isn't clicking over at all. I touched the contacts over the coil that determines when to turn on the system and the other contact closed so I know the coil that energizes the system is good.
I then ran a 12V wire from the battery to the "F" wire (Blue) and tested the voltage.
Car off: 12V
Car running as-is: 11.7V
Car running with wire run from battery to blue "F" wire on regulator: 11.6V
Obviously my alternator isn't charging and I believe my regulator is fried as well. Am I missing something?
