XI SUGGESTED SYSTEM regulator operation may depend on wiring layout based on battery configuration and method of battery sepa
ration used The diagrams on Pages 8 9 illustrate some common recommended wiring layouts
TWO BANKS DUO CHARGE
SINGLE OUTPUT OUTPUT
XII ALTERNATOR AND REGULATOR the causes of failures in an electrical system is a step by step process We recommend that you inspect
and clean all system electrical connections before you begin your search to determine if the failure can be attributed to
one of the two main components of your charging system the alternator andor the voltage charging system problems will be corrected by performing the
following steps
1 Remove and clean all charging system electrical connections from the alternator through the batteries this
includes the ground side Also check the voltage regulators harness for resistance Wires and terminals can and
will become corroded and need to be cleaned or replaced
2 Charge all batteries to their proper fully charged state and determine if they are serviceable If your batteries are
floodedtype use your hydrometer to determine their condition
3 Check and tighten alternator belt If the belt shows signs of wear or damage now is an ideal time for replace
ment Always replace existing belts with the finest quality replacements determining that your batteries and wiring are in suitable condition use the
following tests to determine if charg
ing problems are a result of a faulty alternator or regulator The following tests provide an opportunity to isolate regulator and wiring harness in
order to determine which component may be In order to
preform these tests you will need an independent multimeter preferably a digital type In an emergency a 12V light
bulb can be used to help determine if power or working grounds exist An amp meter and a battery hydrometer with a
thermometer are also helpful diagnostic REGULATOR FIELD TESTS
Test A The alternator and regulator can be tested for function by determining if a magnetic field exists at the pulley shaft or rear bearing To test
1 With the ignition in the OFF position place the head of a steel screwdriver near the nut on the pulley shaft or
near the rear bearing of the alternator There should be no evidence of a magnetic field pulling the screwdriver
toward the Engage the ignition without starting the engine to activate the voltage regulator If an oil pressure switch is
used a jumper across the switch will activate the regulator
3 After allowing time for the regulators startup delay place the head of a steel screwdriver near the nut on the
pulley shaft or near the rear bearing of the alternator There should be evidence of a magnetic field pulling the
screwdriver toward the alternator If a magnetic field is present the voltage regulator alternator brushes and
rotor are likely to be working properly If the system is not charging
remove the alternator and have it inspected by a qualified alternator
shop
Test B If there is little or no magnetic pull at the pulley shaft or at the rear
bearing initiate the following test
1 With the key off and the engine off remove the large harness plug
from the regulator
2 Insert the end of a short length of electrical wire to the RED connec
tor slot of the regulator harness and the other end of the wire to the
BLUE connector slot See figure at right This bypasses the regulator
and tests the alternator and the harness
3 Using your steel screwdriver inspect for a magnetic field as described
above
B R
4 With your voltmeter check for voltage on the blue wire at the alterna
tor If voltage does not exist the harness may be at fault If voltage
does exist at the harness but charging is not occurring the alternator is likely to be a magnetic field is present Both harness and alternator
brushes and rotor appear to be working properly If no mag
netic field is present proceed with the next test
Test C Testing the actual output of the alternator is known as Full Field Testing This can be accomplished by
jumping a positive 12VDC current to the field terminal at the rear of the alternator This test eliminates both the regu
lator and the harness making it easier to isolate your investigation to the alternator CAUTION Ensure that all equipment is turned off prior to
starting the engine Voltage is unregulated during this test and could electronics DO NOT let the engine run any longer than necessary to detect
charging
To test the Clip a jumper wire to the positive post of the alternator or on the battery side of the isolator if an isolator is in
use Use a SHIELDED alligator clip for post attachment Unintentional contact between the alligator clip and
the alternator case could result in damage to your electrical system
2 Disconnect the fieldstator plug from the rear of the alternator and attach the other end of the jumper wire to the
alternators Field terminal F Attach a female spade connector to the field end of the wire for a solid connec
tion CAUTION Do not allow the wire to contact the case while it is attached to the positive post The case is
grounded and severe damage could occur
3 The regulator is now bypassed When the ignition is engaged and the motor is started the voltage should rise
and charging current should be present
4 The motor should be run long enough to determine that charging voltage is present Unregulated voltage can rise
quickly Do not allow extended unregulated charging to occur without carefully monitoring voltage levels
If the alternator fails to generate voltage during field testing a malfunction of the alternator is likely Contact your repair shop or Balmars
technical service staff for REGULATOR TEST
When you have inspected and repaired any wires and connections and replace as needed and after you have determined that your batter
ies are properly charged set your voltmeter to 12V and connect the volt
meters negative lead to the BLACK ground wire at the regulator is accomplished by inserting the negative lead alongside the
ground wire in the regulator harness plug see Figure 31 and the positive
lead alongside the wire referred to in each specific test With the connected to the regulators ground test for voltage at the points
listed below
1 With the ignition in the OFF position and your voltmeters ground
wire connected to the regulators ground check for voltage on the red Figure 31 Testing voltage at regulator
sensing blue field and brown ignition wires in the regulator plug
by inserting the positive lead of the voltmeter alongside each wire in the regulator harness plug The voltmeter
should read
Red Wire Brown Wire Blue Wire
Expected Reading 12 V 0V 0V
Your Reading
2 With the ignition in the ON position engine not running and your voltmeters ground wire connected to the
regulators ground check for voltage on the red sensing blue field and brown ignition wires in the regula
tor plug The voltmeter should read

Expected Reading 12 V 12 V 7 12 V
Your Reading
3 With the ignition in the ON position with engine running at 1400 rpm fast idle and your voltmeters ground
wire connected to the regulators BLACK wire check for voltage on the red sensing blue field and brown
ignition wires in the regulator plug The voltmeter should read

If your readings differ substantially from the Expected Readings listed in the charts above the regulator may be or there may be a continuity problem
Contact our technical support staff at 360 4356100 Keep your
recorded readings in the spaces provided below the Expected Readings so you can share them with the technical sup
port person If your readings match those listed in the charts your regulator should be working correctly Continue
with tests below to determine if your alternator may be the source of charging the preceding tests do not
prove the existence of a failure within the regulator or alternator we recommend you contact a licensed marine electri
cian who can test your system for wiring and circuit damage or other system failures that could be responsible for
charging difficulties If you determine that repair service is necessary for either your alternator or regulator please
