2003 mazda2 charge problem
Posted 18 May 2012 - 02:04 AM
I bought myself an alternator out of a low Km wreck and am probably able to fit it myself (through the headlight!!!) but i'm not convinced it IS the alternator. It seems strange that it is so predictable in the way it behaves, when hot then cold. Any suggestions as to whether it could be anything else and if so how to test if it is?

So if the alternator is producing 14V but the battery is only seeing say 10V you could pretty much say that there is a fault in the PCM. Obviously if the alternator is giving a low reading then that is at fault.
The otherway is to take it to your local dealer and to have them hook up to the scan tool which will give a reading as to what is going on.
