Alternator Failure???

12 April 2013 - 05:25 PM

Hi all


Battery light followed by the power steering and ABS lights come on this morning on my 2006 TDCI Fiesta while driving to work


This afternoon it just managed to start. Most off the panel lights came on and the speedo meter also stop working as well as the trip computer.


I check the voltage while the car was idling and only got 5 or 6V ????


Jump starting and idling got it up to only 10.5V ???


Are these alternators a sealed unit or can the diode pack/ voltage regulator be changed.  What else can be faulty ??


Any advice will be appreciated.


Thanks in advance

Hi all Fiesta`s maniac`s :D

I recently bought a Mk 6 Fiesta with about 189k on the clock. Full service history and all.

I`m hearing horror stories of turbo`s blowing due to faulty injectors ?? Number 3 usally the problem ???

My question now is how do i prevent this. What can I do to minimise this risk off this happening ???

Any advice would be highly appreciated Posted Image
