  1. Hi gents, I've currently got a problem with my Toyota Camry 2005 Altise (ACV36R), When driving home the other day, I noticed that the power to my head unit would switch off, then back on. Once the headlights were turned on, the radio cut out as well. When I arrived home, and turned the car off, I was unable to start it again. I checked and found that I had less than 10V across the battery terminals (which were extremely corroded). The battery is now 6 years old. Given the age of the battery, I decided to replace it with a new battery, and clean the corrosion on the leads. Now the car starts fine, but I'm not seeing an increase in voltage across the battery terminals when the car is running (even at 2000RPM). It's just slowly dropping, which is leading me to believe the alternator is damaged. However, there is no battery fault lamp indicator (the bulb is fine - lights up on startup). I've done a diode test of the alternator. No issue found. I've done a continuity check from the alternator to the positive post of the battery terminal. No issue found. I've sourced an alternator for $250. Just wanted to get any other ideas here before I commit to purchasing it. The only reason I'm holding back from getting one, is that there is no battery warning lamp; which I would expect to see if there was a charging problem... Appreciate any help. Thanks Sean
  2. Hi all I'm having to wire a new alternator into my hiace. The one that was in it was after market and no lon get available. The one that is ment to be in it has an external regulater. I've tried to wire it and still isn't charging. Any help would be great.
  3. '02 Camry, V6, automatic. I noticed while driving today that my ABS light comes on when the engine is over 1000RPM but turns off while idling. I put a multimeter on the battery terminals and notice that the alternator voltage will reach 18V at about 3000RPM. While stationary in Neutral I can press the accelerator and watch the tacho and the voltage. The ABS light comes on as the alternator reaches 17V. I have checked the battery, all cells are full of water and the Voltage only drops from 12.6 to about 12.4 when I select high beam with the engine off. Any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated.
  4. Wife on 2 hour trip reported battery/oil light displaying. RACV guy suggests alternator needs replacing as battery and oil OK. Happy to have a go. Anyone provide advice on best place in Melbourne to source an OEM unit and anything I need to know about reinstall - thanks :)
  5. Hi guys, I am new to this forum, but not new to 4WDing. Forgive me if this is in the wrong section, or there is a similar post already existing; I did do my research before hand :) I bought a 2.2 Liter Diesel 1981 Hilux (LN46) and I took it out in the mud the first day I got it. Soon after, all the dash lights came on and the alternator was no longer charging :( I have taken it out, got it tested at the autoelectrics and they quoted me $400 to refurbish it (apparently it was stuffed) or $450 for a new one. The truth is, I paid $1000 for the lux as a 'bash-around' so I am not willing to pay nearly half the price of the car after one 4WD trip. My question is: What other alternators will bolt straight into my engine bay, e.g. what other Toyota models? My alternator DOES have a oil/vacuum pump at the BACK of the alternator. I want to get away from this cheap, so I am looking around at wreckers, but I am not sure which models are interchangeable with mine. Thanks heaps!
  6. HI all, I have owned my 2004 Camry Grand for about a year now, the car is clean and runs very well until last week, it seems when I turn the key camry is struggling to start. at first I thought the battery is about to go... so I have check the Battery voltage while running the car and found out that NOT CHARGING. so diagnosed as alternator is not working properly. so I called Toyota parts and other auto electrician the part cost $235 (ebay) $280 (OEM)~$526 (bosh) + GST. so I just want to get if anyone have PDF or file on how to change over? I have watched some other youtube vids that is quite a simple job. I will post some DIY photos when I do this :) any help would be appreciated. thank you Gluey
