2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor Repair Question
Mitsubishi Endeavor Alternator Problem
12.4 isn't to good it shold be 12.7 check what i've pointed to in drawing as it may be a fusible link that has burnt up. charge battery and have checekd as well as load test. if bad take back to wher eyou go t it .
one other thing the pcm may not be turnign it on so if still not working scan for codes.
what is a pcm ?
I have checked all fusible links and the are good. I am checking them with a ohmmeter and am getting continuity.
Is the alternator a rebuilt unit? What is the charging voltage now?
PCM is the Power Control Module, meaning the engine computer.
yes the alternator is rebuilt/remanufactored. When I got the engine started after changing the alternator the battery voltage was still 12.4
Either the alternator is bad or you have a broken connection between alternator and battery.
Test the voltage between the alternator main mast. If it is higher than 13v, the alternator is charging but connection between battery and alternator is open.
how do I do the voltage test ? and test the voltage between the alternator main mast and what ? I also did this check I disconnected the neg. battery cable (the engine was not running) and checked the resistance between the alternator post and the battery POS. post and got continuity.
you probe the large wire with your vom positive an put the negative to ground while it is running. In your case it wil be teh position B on the alternator normally marked on the connector. it should read at least 13 volts if it does and it doesn't read the same voltage on teh other side of th e fusible link in the picture then the link is bad/burnt
Rebuilt alternators are known to fail upon installation.
