Hey guys,

Just replaced my pooched out alternator with a new rebuilt bosch/Nippon Denso unit.

It doesnt seem to be overcharging now (no where near the 18 volts it was at yesterday) but both lights are still on!! (charge and ebrake)

I was wondering if there was a reset or somthing to alleviate this problem, or if my battery is toast... possible??

The 5MGE is out of an 88 Cressida, could that cause it?

Thanks,

Aaron

i believe the alternator I got was for the 88 Cressida... does that make any kind of difference?

Dave,

Cool... thanks for the info. Im guessing then that I wont have any problems driving the car as is, except for maybe the anoyance of the lights being on... correct?

Oh, and what is it about the newer style alternators that causes this to happen?

Thanks,

Aaron

Seamus,

I know that =) I got the newer style alternator though, thats why Im wondering. It'll be safe to drive with the lights still on you think, eh?

Anywho, Im guessing that the reason im only getting 13.2volts at the battery terminals is because the battery isnt accepting a charge anymore. I cant imagine that the alternator going would cause any other sort of charging system failure... especially when Im making 14.3 at the alternator.
