Beach Buggy Electrical Help / Charging issue
« on: April 18, 2014, 01:18:22 PM »
I have a standard generator 12v set up with external regulator.

It appears the car is not charging

I checked battery voltage and it's around 12.5v when not running but stays similar when it is running.

I then repolarize the generator by removing wiring and fan belt and linking D+ to pos on battery and DF to neg on battery. The dynamo spins, I allow it to spin for around 3-5 seconds. Then I replace wiring and belt and try again, I still get the same voltages.

I then push the brushes towards the rotor but voltages remain the same

Is my generator knackered? Or am I missing a trick?

I have a fridge 3 way in reasonable condition, was going to be installed in my van but changed plans.

240v tested and ok, 12v keeps it cool but doesn't actively cool things. Gas unchecked
