Re: Correct alternator voltage

Thanks Rick. I had had the battery checked ...as well as checked it myself. It is fine. I did try another voltmeter and now I am getting 14.6 to 14.73 so I am a little more comfortable with what I have. Although this does not say a lot about having the chain parts stores tests.

Re: Correct alternator voltage

Ok, Thanks. My concern is I had it tested at two of the local stores ...both Advanced and Oreilly's and they both said it was bad and overcharging. But I put my volt meter on it and get 14.8 volts. We are about to take a long Thanksgiving trip and don't want end up ruining the battery.

Correct alternator voltage

I continue to attack alternator problem. I swapped the regulator and now my alternator is putting out 14.8 volts with a load on it. Is this correct or is the battery being overcharged? It is a 2012 Volvo XC70 7.3 with the 180 amp alternator.

Yes, I have tested the battery and I can charge it an it holds charge. Just to make sure I also had the local Oreilly's test the battery and they came up with a bad alternator. I am only getting 12.75 volts at he battery when the car is running. Any input is appreciated!

2012 XC70 alternator failure 65k?

My 2012 XC70 3.2 is not charging and the local parts store claims it is the alternator. Really at 65000 miles?
