Understanding the working of the Generator light

Recommended Posts

SmilinSam
Am I correct to assume that the generator light works only in conjunction with a voltage regulator? I was trying to think of how it could work with a alternator type charging system, but the only way I think it woud work is if the stator or regulator/rectifier got grounded out, in which case the light would have a ground souce and would come on.?. Otherwise it would never come on.?. Right thinking ? Wrong thinking?

As far as I was told, if the light can on with the generator, there was a problem. As far as with an alternator,, when I hooked it up to the puller, the light stays on. It does get brighter the higher the rpms are. If I remember right, I have ti coming out of the alt, to the light and them to the key switch. Elon

On my 3410 the generator light is on at low rpm when the generator is no putting out 12 volt when the rpm goes up and the system is charging the light goes out. I have checked this with the meter and that is how it works. Why it works like that I have no idea. JW

Sam, download this: http://www.delcoremy.com/LiteratureDownload/06SpecGuide.pdf Then go to page 133. This will give you an idea how to use an exisiting light or hooking up tyour own.
