|SteveA||Last week the "battery" idiot light lit up on my LX188. The engine was evidently running off the battery. I investigated and found that one of the stator leads (brown/white)melted it's slot in the nylon regulator connector. I replaced the connector and regulator.
The engine started and ran normal. The "battery" light is no longer lit. I then checked the wires to the regulator connector and noticed my old friend the brown/white wire feels warm to the touch. Also, the regulator seems to warm up pretty quickly. Since the regulator is finned I assume they generate some heat but how much? Do I have another issue I am not aware? I do not want to burn up another connector beforte I get to the root of my problem if one in fact exists. Thanks.
|Bruce||Firstly...check all ground connections. A bad ground will cause the amperage to soar! Especially the engine ground, and the battery post ground. Now remove the 3 wires from the regulator, and run the engine @ full RPM. Set a voltmeter to "AC" voltage, and put the test leads to the 2 outside wires (probably white). You should have an AC reading of 40 volts, or so...but if it's below 30...your stator is shot. Replace stator. I'm betting you have a bad ground....or, a shorted out stator.
