'89 Bronco alternator problems and I have searched
I'm kind of new here, but I do a lot reading and searching my problem. I have searched read the problems and got a lot of information, but I have not found enough or the right information to solve my problem.
I understand how the alternator works. I have a new alternator (checked 3 times, autozone, Local parts store and alternator shop) and it is good and working properly. I have 12.5 volts with the engine oof start the engine I have 12.1 volts running at idle. It does not increase to recommeded volt to charge. I used the a VOM to chek coming from the alternator, checked coming from the switch to th alternator (7-9 mV). I haved cleaned all the conectors to the starter solenoid, replaced the alternator harness with new connectors, the harness made with new wires and fuse wire link. I checked the volt meter. the only thing i can think that I don't see working is the battery indicator light is not working. Possibly my Problem!!! The battery cables are in good condition and I have cleaned the ends and terminals on the battery.
everyone is going to say to go to the 3G, but I had rather deal with this problem first to deal with the problem at hand.
Is there a way to bypass the switch to get the alternator charging. the engine starts and runs perfect right now.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
