521 no charge

02 June 2017 - 04:54 AM

My 521 is not charging again.Happen last night so no time to look at it.

The 1st fuse on the left keeps popping. THis time replace fuse turn key ON but no ignition light.

Alt is only 3/4 months old.

 

Fuck I cant get more than 6 months before this thing breaks again.

Last fix was a new alter. prvios fix was reseat the instrument panel.

 

aJust wonder if its the alternator again.


blowing Ignition fuse 521

Really its the 1st fuse Left on the fuse block. So maybe flasher ,reverse, instrument cluster

 

Driving to work my alternator starting squeling and I tighten the belt and notice on my diode type volt meter I wasn't charging.

 

So I went home found a fuse was blown  started up and then notice Im now over charging even with the High beams ON.

I swapped the volt reg out  cked out fineand it worked fine untell I heard the alternator squel again then bam im back to not charging.  I replaced fuse and now its over charging again. It s a solid state volt reg.

Fuse is blown again.

 

truck runs off battery so It inst the ignition fuse as sated in Title.

 

what you guys think. Datzenmike, Wayno ,Daniel??????

 

I have a spare alternator. to swap in and and spare Volt reg mechanical and solid state.

 

But really assume the alternator is good.

 

Im going to pullthe instrument cluster and clean it and maybe the fuse box.

 

If it wasn't for the volt meter im running I would have never known I had this proplem as my ignition light never came on and would have ran my battery down. So people run a volt meter or better yet those plug in Cig type with diodes and believe what it says.

 

MY bad luck I didnt bolt down the fuse cover with the labols saw it on road then a truck ran over it and don't have the labels

 

its the far left fuse that's poping on fuse panel

As on DPs thread it could be the rverse lights
