Weird alternator light problem.


Recommended Posts

All of a sudden my alternator light flashes  when my turn signal stalk returns to center, and only when driving. I tried it sitting still and turning the wheel and the lever returns to center and no light.

Weird, huh??

Alternator light compares ACC power to a signal from the alternator.  I have no idea why you're having this problem, as the turn signal switch doesn't involve those signals.

Start with the basics, fan belt tight and all grounds are in place and functional (especially to the engine and regulator and fender apron), clean the connections on the voltage regulator, make sure the connections on the alternator are tight, check condition of crimped connections on the ends of the wires and cables.
