Battery Is Damaged Or Weak

1. BATTERY TEST

Remove the battery (page 17-5).

Check the battery condition using the recommended battery tester. RECOMMENDED BATTERY TESTER: BM210 or BATTERY MATE or equivalent

Is the battery in good condition?

2. CURRENT LEAKAGE TEST

Install the battery (page 17-5).

Check the battery current leakage test (Leak test; (page 17-9)). Is the current leakage below2.0 mA? YES - GO TO STEP 4. NO - GO TO STEP 3.

3. CURRENT LEAKAGE TEST WITHOUT REGULATOR/RECTIFIER CONNECTED Disconnect the regulator/rectifier connector and recheck the battery current leakage. Is the current leakage below 2.0 mA?

YES - Faulty regulator/rectifier

• Faulty ignition switch

4. ALTERNATOR CHARGING COIL INSPECTION

Check the alternator charging coil (page 17-9).

Is the alternator charging coil resistance within 0.1 - 1.0 O (20 C/68 Fj?

NO - Faulty charging coil YES -GO TO STEP 5.

5. CHARGING VOLTAGE INSPECTION

Measure and record the battery voltage using a digital multimeter (page 17-5). Start the engine.

Measure the charging voltage (page 17-9).

Compare the measurement to result of the following calculation. STANDARD:

Measured battery Voltage < Measured charging voltage < 15.5 V Is the measured charging voltage within the standard voltage?

6. REGULATOR/RECTIFIER SYSTEM INSPECTION

Check the voltage and resistance at the regulator/rectifier connector (page 17-10). Are the results of checked voltage and resistance correct?

YES - Faulty regulator/rectifier

NO - • Open circuit in related wire

• Loose or poor contacts of related terminal

• Shorted wire harness
