Before installing alternator check the following related items:

  1. Battery: Check for faulty or weak battery. Battery must be secured tight inside the battery holder.
  2. Fully Charged Battery: Make sure that the battery is putting out 12.6 volts and is fully charged. Load test battery to ensure it will hold charge.
  3. Correct Battery: Make sure you are installing the correct battery for the vehicle with the necessary cold cranking amps.
  4. Battery Cables: Check for proper connections, corrosion and wear. Cables can be tested by verifying the voltage drop doesn't exceed 1/2 volt from end to end.
  5. Belts: Check belts for cracks, polished wear and alignment.
  6. Belt Tensioners: Check for proper tension and for binding.

Remember: Do not jump-start another vehicle while the battery is still connected to the electrical system.

Remember: Before installing alternator you must be certain the battery is fully charged and load tested

Remember: Never remove the battery cable while the engine is running to check charging system. This will cause damage to the alternator and computer system.

NOTE: Alternator is not a battery charger. It is designed to maintain a fully charged battery.

Alternator IS NOT A BATTERY CHARGER!

IT IS DESIGNED TO 

MAINTAIN A FULLY CHARGED BATTERY ONLY

NOT TO RECHARGE A DISCHARGED BATTERY

BEFORE INSTALLING the alternator, CHECK the condition of the vehicle's BATTERY as follows:

1. If the voltage of the battery is BELOW 12.4 VOLTS, RECHARGE TO 12.4 VOLTS or higher.

*Voltage at the battery and back of alternator B+ post should read 12.4 to 12.6 volts before starting engine*

2. If the battery is 30 MONTHS OLD or OLDER, it should either be PROFESSIONALLY LOAD TESTED
or have a high quality NEW BATTERY INSTALLED BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE.

UNLESS THESE PROCEDURES ARE FOLLOWED, DAMAGE TO THE ALTERNATOR OR STARTER MAY OCCUR, WHICH MAY VOID WARRANTY.
