is because no matter what position the rotor (M) is in,
all the diodes are simultaneously involved in the
1 CHARGING CIRCUIT DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURES
IMPORTANT: Do not disconnect electrical connectors while the engine is running. Damage to Engine and
Pump Controller or other components may result. Disconnect connectors only when instructed during a
test or check.
NOTE: For a problem that cannot be identified using the diagnostic procedures, check the wiring harnesses and
diodes in the circuits for shorts and opens.
Key switch OFF.
With voltmeter connected from battery (+) terminal to
vehicle ground, measure and record battery voltage. 24 -
25.5 volts is normal.
Start and run engine at 1500 rpm, and check battery
Does battery voltage increase to 27.4 - 28.4 volts?
