I'm having a problem the generator on my car.
The old generator was not producing a charge, so I replaced it with a rebuilt Bosch 12 V, 350 watt, 25 Amp unit that us correct for the vehicle. (The old generator had bad field coils.)
After installing and properly polarizing the new generator, I started the car to check to see whether the red generator light had gone off. It hadn't.
I got out my multi-tester and set it to DC-V and looked for a 10-13 V output from the new generator.
I then checked the Voltage regulator and again no reading.
I'm getting an appropriate voltage measurement from the coil, but from nowhere else.
I am going to replace the voltage regualtor, but if that doesn't do the trick, what else should I be looking for?
