I think my alternator has had the volatage regulator die. It no longer charges the battery and if I charge it over night, it runs sweet for one day. Tested the battery in the car fully charged its at 14.2 Volts, reving the engine at 3000rpm the volts just continue to fall.
When the car is off and turn the key to the on postion all the lights come on except the battery light.
I read some were that when the regulator goes it blows the battery light and that once the battery light is gone even with a fixed alternator it wont charge with out the light working.
My question is who do I replace the battery light? It looks like an LED in the circuit board. How do I get to it, do I just pull the needles off? How do I know I've put the needles back in the right place, etc?
Has anyone got an article on this?
