Before installing alternator check the following related items:
- Battery: Check for faulty or weak battery. Battery must be secured tight inside the battery holder.
- Fully Charged Battery: Make sure that the battery is putting out 12.6 volts and is fully charged. Load test battery to ensure it will hold charge.
- Correct Battery: Make sure you are installing the correct battery for the vehicle with the necessary cold cranking amps.
- Battery Cables: Check for proper connections, corrosion and wear. Cables can be tested by verifying the voltage drop doesn't exceed 1/2 volt from end to end.
- Belts: Check belts for cracks, polished wear and alignment.
- Belt Tensioners: Check for proper tension and for binding.
Remember: Do not jump-start another vehicle while the battery is still connected to the electrical system.
Remember: Before installing alternator you must be certain the battery is fully charged and load tested
Remember: Never remove the battery cable while the engine is running to check charging system. This will cause damage to the alternator and computer system.

Alternator IS NOT A BATTERY CHARGER!
IT IS DESIGNED TO
MAINTAIN A FULLY CHARGED BATTERY ONLY
NOT TO RECHARGE A DISCHARGED BATTERY
BEFORE INSTALLING the alternator, CHECK the condition of the vehicle's BATTERY as follows:
1. If the voltage of the battery is BELOW 12.4 VOLTS, RECHARGE TO 12.4 VOLTS or higher.
*Voltage at the battery and back of alternator B+ post should read 12.4 to 12.6 volts before starting engine*
2. If the battery is 30 MONTHS OLD or OLDER, it should either be PROFESSIONALLY LOAD TESTED
or have a high quality NEW BATTERY INSTALLED BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE.
UNLESS THESE PROCEDURES ARE FOLLOWED, DAMAGE TO THE ALTERNATOR OR STARTER MAY OCCUR, WHICH MAY VOID WARRANTY.
