[DMCForum] Re: Alternator upgrade troubles



 
 
Ryan,
 
I think you made just need to add back the "Batt" light wire which was cut  
off from the wiring harness at the alternator end of the  harness and at 
bulkhead connector end also by DMC when the  Motorola upgrade was made.  I traced my 
wiring harness and found a  little stub left over on both ends.  It is NY, 
Brown with a Yellow  stripe.  I believe I had to unravel some of the harness 
tape to see  it.  Then you have to connect it back to the bulkhead connector 
which is a  pain, but in my case there was a little piece still coming out of the 
bulkhead  connector which I was able to solder to.  You can go to the download 
 section of my website _www.dmc12.info_ (http://www.dmc12.info)  and get  the 
bulkhead layout.
 
Let us know how it works out.

Subject: Alternator upgrade  troubles

Folks,

I bought & installed a new 4-wire 180amp  alternator tonight. It's
mounted up great and the belt is turning it just  fine but I'm getting
NO power from it! I could really use some  advice...

I had an original motorola alternator. There were only two  connections
to it: The main power feed (8 cables going into 2 ring  connectors
hooked up to the primary "batt" terminal on the alternator) and  a
brown wire that goes hot with the ignition on, which I assume is  the
sense for the regulator.

There were NO other wires connected to  my Motorola. I was instructed
to hook up a yellow wire for the lamp light  to the "L" terminal on the
new 4-wire plug. I looked all over the place but  couldn't find a
yellow wire, nor any loose wires whatsoever.

So, I  mounted the alternator, connected the main power wires to the
primary power  terminal and connected the red "S" wire on the new
4-wire plug to the brown  wire. I left the other three wires in the new
4-wire plug  disconnected.

I get nothing. Zero voltage output. :(

Any ideas??  If it's just the lack of connecting the "L" wire, can
someone tell me where  in the world I should start looking for that
wire? Where does it go or  route from? Which wire loom does it come out
of? As I said I looked all  over the place, it's not to be found
anywhere...

Thanks for any  help,

-Ryan





Thank  you,

Dave
