alternator & battery
Hi there, I was wondering if my car was fitted with the right alternator and the right battery! So i am just checking.
My car is fitted with:
- a Bosch alternator (0120489911/912) 14V 45A
- a Delphi Freedom (BEO4427) battery 12V 44Ah
And this is fitted on a series 2 33 1.7 QV with central locking and a Gemini alarm.
The funny thing is, that there should be a green dot visible in my battery, indicating that it is fully charged. But that green dot isn't visible to me. Any suggestions to what i should check, replace?? The alternator won't give me more then 13,6V when charging! Could someone explain the wires connected to the alternator (1 green and 2 red)? And where they go or originate from? Green is the smallest one.
