I'm having a problem with my charging system.I have had the altenator tested and it passed all tests. I have a New battery also. The problem I'm having is the alt. Is not charging the battery.I'm told that on this year the regulator is run by the computer. Is there a way I can test this to find out. I would hate to get a new computer and have it not be the problem.

The computer controls the alternator field generation to increase and decrease resistances-to raise the voltage or lower it.

See below this is how your charging system is wired.

According to the wiring diagram you show my car must be wired wrong because I don't have a wire going from alt to starter solenoid. Its goes direct to battery
