Re: Whats wrong with my car?

Hi,
Its normally a thin wire with a spade connector on the back of the alternator, just push/pull off sort of thing, check the wire hasn't started to get brittle from the engine heat......

Thanks
Paul T

Re: Whats wrong with my car?

ok, looking at diagrams now. that wire runs from the alternator to the instrument cluster - but no where else.

Re: Whats wrong with my car?

had a car once with the wrong bulb in the dash display(battery light)causing charging problems.turns out the bulb is the 'exciter'(oeer) for the charging system so it could be something on the signal circuit
