How to Test an Alternator
Diagnosing Alternator Problems, how to test an alternator, how to test alternator voltage output, how to test voltage drop, how to test a failed battery or alternator, how to test and troubleshoot an alternator problem, how to test an alternator with a multimeter, Does your car not start, do you have dim headlights or interior lights, does the starter sound weak when start the engine, or does your car die sitting overnight? This video will show you a few ways to test your alternator to see if it is bad, is going bad or is good. A good alternator will show a charge at around 14.2-14.7v while the car is running and under an electrical load it wont drop below 13v. Here is a great multimeter for under $20: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001O1X65A/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789& creative=390957&creativeASIN=B001O1X65A&linkCode=as2&tag=chri0e2-20&linkId= DQXKJ44LE7TL32CR Test your Battery https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COJr7OB23Hw Check for Parasitic Draw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5FJDgcdii8 Top 10 Mistakes Car Owners Make https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkn-K2noClw ***If the video was helpful, please give it a "thumbs up" and consider subscribing.

How to test for bad alternator. Internal shorts etc
Solution to a very hard to diagnose issue on a 99 Honda Civic. The issue can be found on any car and here is the solution. Here are the facts to help you diagnose if the below is the same for you: Battery - good and tested by autoparts store Alternator - good and tested by autoparts store (outputs 14v when car is running) When testing amperage from + battery post to + battery cable, NO current draw is found. The mystery here is why the battery is draining. Since no relay/circuit is showing a draw, the draw is occuring from wiring not included in the large harness that powers all of the components inside your car, and in the engine bay. The only cable that hooks up avoiding this is the cable that the alternator uses to charge the battery. With car engine off, Test the battery's voltage after charging and disconnecting the cable coming from the alternator. You should have over 12v. Keep the meter on the battery, and then reconnect the cable from the alternator. If the voltage drops, and keeps dropping over a period of minutes, you have a bad alternator. Even though it may charge, it has an internal short and needs to be REPLACED. I hope this helps everyone figure out this mystery issue that can occur from time to time.





Testing For Current Drain That Runs Down Car Battery
When your car battery runs down when the car is just parked and won't start the car after a few days, most people assume it's a short circuit. Shorts tend to fix themselves by melting things, it's probably a current drain. You can find out with an inexpensive multimeter with a DC Amp Scale. http://www.ifitjams.com/circuit.htm

How To Perform a Parasitic Draw Test - EricTheCarGuy
http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ This video has been a long timing coming and is one of the most requested things I get is about batteries going dead overnight so I'm very happy to finally bring you this video about the process of finding a parasitic draw which is a small drain on a battery above 50ma when the vehicle is shut off. Once you find the right fuse(s) the next step is to trace the components involved in that circuit till you find the source of the draw, you first start with a wiring diagram to give you an idea of where to start looking and then start unplugging things in that circuit to isolate the cause, it's quite scientific really a simple process of elimination. Here is a link to BBB's site that you can use to look up wiring diagrams for your application. http://www.bbbind.com/tech_database.html Good luck and if you have anymore questions check the database on my website and if you don't find what you're looking for there then post your question to my forum, here's a link. http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- Be safe, have fun, and stay dirty ETCG Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, it cannot guarantee against unauthorized modifications of this information, or improper use of this information.  EricTheCarGuy assumes no liability for property damage or injury incurred as a result of any of the information contained in this video. EricTheCarGuy recommends safe practices when working with power tools, automotive lifts, lifting tools, jack stands, electrical equipment, blunt instruments, chemicals, lubricants, or any other tools or equipment seen or implied in this video.  Due to factors beyond the control of EricTheCarGuy, no information contained in this video shall create any express or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result.  Any injury, damage or loss that may result from improper use of these tools, equipment, or the information contained in this video is the sole responsibility of the user and not EricTheCarGuy.

I made this one to highlight a common problem with alternators made by valeo,which are fitted in alot of vehicles nowadays. If alternator in your vehicle is causing trouble and it is a valeo you might as well have a look at it,and you have a big chance that it is only a brush problem. To buy them brushes check: http://www.ebay.ie/itm/150797624638?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984 .m1555.l2649#ht_1519wt_1102

How to Find A Car Battery Drain
In this video I show how to determine the amount of current that is being drawn from the car battery while your car is turned off. I made a similar video before, but it seemed that a lot of you wanted me to actually take of the cable. So that's what I did lol. The amount of current being drawn from your battery can help you determine whether there is a legitimate problem or not. If your battery keeps dying and the draw is less than 50 mA then the problem is the battery, but if the draw is greater than 50 mA then the problem is something other than your battery. Here you can access the same online info that I use to work on my own cars: http://gan.doubleclick.net/gan_click?lid=41000613802463867&pubid=2100000000 0630562&lsrc=17 Here at Northern Tools you can find Milwaukee Tools, and other tools I use in my videos: http://gan.doubleclick.net/gan_click?lid=41000613802463294&pubid=2100000000 0630562&lsrc=17 Click here to show thanks, and help support Fixbook: http://www.hondahowto.com/p/blog-page_25.html Fixbook DIY Car Repair
