Hello-thanks for your quick reply to my question. When the charging system was tested at Autozone the employee told me the test would show if the voltage regulator was malfunctioning. The test involved connections at both battery terminals as well as a connection at the alternator. Is this the proper way to test the voltage regulator or is there another specific test that needs to be done? Thanks-Towpathrat
I don't know what they're using as test machine you sounded as though its just a voltmeter. Its okay if its a VAT20/40 dunno.
There's still something wrong within -double check all connections-make sure the computer is properly grounded also the ground cable to the engine/bracket
If they rule it out and its not coming from the alternator-have someone check out the entire charging circuit-see below
