  1. Ke30 charging

    I changed my brushes on alternator not long ago and was charging fine. Drove back from work today and the charge light come on and the battery's drained, do I need a new alt ? As I haven't touch the old wiring at all. The engine was losing revs and power as I was driving it to

  8. Alternator not charging

    I was talking to an uber driver last night he said there should be a rubber or thick washer between the positive terminal and alt so I'm gonna try put it back like that and see if something happens other wise I'll have a look and see what wires I can find
  9. Alternator not charging

    From that sketch, there's no third wire connecting from the engine block to the alt from a glance, but it didn't have a connection before either could it be earthed somewhere else? I'll have to have a real good look, do you recommend I see an auto sparky?

  11. Alternator not charging

    I replaced the brushes and reg all went well then connected everything all together as soon as we put the negative on the battery one of the wires started smoking from the positive side, I chased the wire and it was the positive wire connecting to the alt, does that mean my alt is shorting? Or the brushes aren't in right causing it to arch?

  14. Alternator not charging

    My old regulator is located directly behind the right front light, so it's wired around and under the engine to the alt will take pictures and show you when I grab the new reg
  15. Alternator not charging

    Since the new alt is pretty much the same, does that mean I don't have to wire it up again? Just get a new reg with a 3 terminal plug and I'm set? What happens to the old 2 terminal socket? Still a bit confused haha
