Alternator test

Asked by Jul 12, 2017 at 10:37 PM about the 2006 Dodge Stratus SXT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Tested altenator, get reading of 11.9! Is it
defective? Is there a voltage regulator?

1 Answer


Was the alternator tested in or out if the vehicle? If it was in the battery is low and the alternator has no output. If it was out of the vehicle and tested on a stand then it is bad. The voltage regulator is part of the main computer on Chrysler products and not serviceable by itself, better have a pro check it out I have seen more people put on new computers only to find out it was a broken wire or just a bad connector.
