6x6 Alternator not charging
« on: May 13, 2018, 08:29:53 AM »
Gday, the charge light on my Perentie is on all the time and the alternator is not charging the batteries. I removed the alternator last week and it was tested at the auto electricians and bench tests perfectly.
This vehicle is a Tenex rebuild and has a new wiring harness so Iím not expecting issues there.

My question, is there a fuse or a relay on the charge circuit that could be causing issues? Or is there something else I should be looking for?

Hi Pete, if it bench tested ok and the light is on it has to be a wiring issue. Check all the wires in the 3 pin plug at the back of the alternator.
