i've been having alternator charging problems in a 92 explorer sport.
now, with a new alternator, (and new battery), the only way i can get
a voltage meter to register any output voltage from the alternator is
to disconnect the connector where the harness from the alternator goes
into the main wiring harness near the battery and ecu.
i've taken the wiring harness out (the small one from the alternator
to the main) and it checks out fine. i've also checked all the fuses
near the ecu.
i've read in old posts that the voltage regulator circuit includes the
battery light and ignition switch. i *do*
know that my battery light
doesn't work, so this would seem to fit into the equation.
my question is: what now? can i get under the dash and wire directly
across the battery light? is it hard to get to the battery light to
check the socket?
