156 jtd 1.9 Alternator leads.
Hello. I hope someone can help me. I have a 2005 156 jtd 1.9 8v and after a drive home from Norwich last week, the car was completely dead within half an hour. Not wanting to fry the ECU by jump starting it, I purchased a brand new high spec battery today, and fitted it myself. Now when the car is running, the battery light is constantly on. I have taken the car to the garage and had a charge rate test done on it. The results showed that the alternator is not charging the battery at all. Nothing !!! ? The garage mechanic said that he doubted it was the alternator, as it would be showing a low charge rate. So instead I am thinking it could be something like an earth strap or connection between the battery and alternator. The thing is, I dont know where to start looking. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
