Re: "Battery" light on AU1
I've replaced the alternator with the mistubishi unit that coventry's had listed for my car.
Just one problem with the 'sensor' wires on the alternator (not the high current ones, the ones that need the new plastic connector.
Plugged in one way, I get a 4A drain from the battery with the car off and key out of the ignition.
The other way around, I get the battery light come up on the dash (even though we see 14.5V at the battery) and when the car is off, we get the oil and (i think) ABS lights stay 'half' lit on the dash.
I've left it unplugged at the moment, and everything is running fine, but I can't figure out what to do with these wires.
And has anyone had a brand new engine belt snap after 10 seconds of idling?
Mine did and it ripped off the crank pulse generator and caused quite a headache. Was a genuine belt from Ford too...
