2003 F150 voltage regulator is inside the alternator. What are you referring to as the voltage regulator?


The starter solinoid on the firewall.

Bob Beaman

Have you measured the battery voltage or had the battery tested? If you put power directly to the starter cable and nothing happened either the battery, the starter cable or the starter is bad. How old is the battery?


The Battery is New.
