If the engine doesnt start on its own
power, you should check the battery
and starter circuits.
A charged battery in good condition is a
prerequisite for testing an alternator/regulator
system. If battery is suspect, substitute a known
good battery in the vehicle.
Alternators have a large stud on side of
housing as output terminal to connect wire 6.
Check the wiring and the pins at pins E 8 F at PCB
Check the wiring and the pins at pins D 8 G at PCB
Check and clean starter solenoid and battery box
Check and clean battery cables and clamps.
Look for loose, dirty, or broken connections and repair
If terminal voltage is still low, harness
should be replaced. Notify DS maintenance
