CHARGING SYSTEM PFP:23100
System Description AKS0098X
The alternator provides DC voltage to operate the vehicle's electrical system and to keep the battery charged.
The voltage output is controlled by the IC regulator.
Power is supplied at all times
? through 10A fuse (No. 36, located in the fuse and fusible link block)
? to alternator terminal 4 (?S? terminal).
?B? terminal supplies power to charge the battery and operate the vehicle's electrical system. Output voltage is
controlled by the IC regulator at terminal 4 (?S? terminal) detecting the input voltage.
The alternator is grounded to the engine block.
With the ignition switch in the ON or START position, power is supplied
? through 10A fuse [No. 14, located in the fuse block (J/B)]
? to combination meter terminal 23 for the charge warning lamp.
Ground is supplied with power and ground supplied
? to terminal 17 of combination meter
? through alternator terminal 3 (?L? terminal)
? to alternator terminal 2 (?E? terminal)
? through grounds E212 and E213.
The charge warning lamp will illuminate. When the alternator is providing sufficient voltage with the engine
running, the ground is opened and the charge warning lamp will go off.
If the charge warning lamp illuminates with the engine running, a malfunction is indicated.
The IC regulator warning function activates to illuminate charge warning lamp, if any of the following symp-
toms occur while alternator is operating:
? Excessive voltage is produced.
? No voltage is produced.
