Check for loose generator belt, charging resistance too high, defective generator, loose generator ground wire, corroded battery terminals or faulty generator

Turn ignition on.
If CHARGE warning light illuminates, go to next step. If CHARGE warning light does not illuminate, check for blown fuse No. 15 (7.5-amp) in instrument panel fuse/relay block. Check for blown charging system light bulb.

If fuse and light bulb are okay, repair open in White/Blue wire.

Start engine.
If CHARGE warning light does not turn off, go to next step. If CHARGE warning light turns off, perform generator/regulator test. See

Ensure ignition is on. Check voltage between generator 4-pin connector terminal No. 1 (Black/Yellow wire) and ground. If battery voltage exists, go to next step. If battery voltage does not exist, repair open in Black/Yellow wire between generator and instrument panel fuse/relay block.

Turn ignition off. Disconnect generator 4-pin connector. Ground generator connector terminal No. 3 (White/Blue wire). Turn ignition on. If CHARGE warning light illuminates, go to next step. If CHARGE warning light does not illuminate, repair open in White/Blue wire between CHARGE warning light and instrument panel fuse/relay block.

Remove ground from generator connector terminal No. 3 (White/Blue wire). If CHARGE warning light turns off, test and repair generator components. If CHARGE warning light is still illuminated, repair short to ground in White/Blue wire
