1999 Ford Mustang 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 105000 miles
Have replaced with new battery. Have replaced altenator (thought it ws bad took it back and exchanged for another). SO new altenator; new battery. Altenator will not charge battery. Have replaced battery terrminals. Battery light stays on at dash and car runs off battery until it discharges. No voltage difference (stays at 12.5v) with car at 2000 RPM. What else is there? The only thing I can think of is to replace the ground cable amd the hot cable or the wiring between the altenator and the fuse box. Next Check the ground strap from the engine to the chassis. Could it be the hot lead going to the voltage regulator? It is the 3 pronged lead with the middle lead going to a fourth pin (i read nothing on that lead with volt meter). ALso the altenator has bench tests good.
have the same problem?
