Is it a rebuild alternator or new? I've seen rebuilts faulty out of the box. Take it back and get another one.


the old alternator checked out ok but thinking it was charging sometimes and sometimes not same problem now with rebuilt one i was wondering if system has any relays or fuses which could cause this


tom this is foots i ask another question in the answer section sorry about that just getting to know how to use the computer i am old school but any help you can give me on this is really appreciated have checked the wires and body ground


There is a fuse-able link that runs from starter, check that. My van would start and not charge after 3 alternators I found that wire popped. Hope this helps.
