voltage regulator

I cant find online a wiring diagram to fix my voltage regulator for my 95 Cherokee, does anyone know how to change it out?

or does anyone know a way I could do a external regulator?

my alt puts out 135amps

Computer controlled charging ...... no voltage regulator! Is it a 135 amp alt? What's the problem?

I realize that! Thats why is said "change it out" not where do i find it!

Yes its 135,

Its charging at 15volts and getting worse at times. U can fix the ecu but need a diagram. New ecu is 4-5days away an $300. Most external voltage regulators can only handle 80-85amps, just wondering if theres higher rated ones out there an how u could use it to bypass the stock regulator junk.

All the voltage regulator does is turn the stator on and off so that ur not generating 70 volts..... Computer does the same thing turns it on and off so it could be generating 15 volts because one bad connection is dropping the voltage .6-.8 volts so its allowing it to generate more voltage

What about a regulator out of a Durango or Dakota? They run the same high amp alternators, just a thought, Mabey? When my voltage regulator went it full fielded the alt and put out 75 amps straight to the battery , never seen a soleniod melt off a fender before

Can't say I have heard of what you are trying to do......I'd ask the Jeep god (Nutty) if I was you

what is the problem?
your alternator puts out 135 amps. normal.
your alternator puts out 15 bolts. normal. (actully 14.8 is normal)

I ran my alternator for 3 years at 18 volts.

135 amps is not being put out either, only when you demand 135 amps. thats the current draw.

so, you have something that will measure exactly.

because 14.8 is about normal.

The regulator should be part on the alternator.

Are you trusting the gauge or have you measured with a volt/ohm reader?
