  • DENSO alternators are not only original equipment on many of the world's top production cars; they are a favorite in motorsports as well, where their light weight, high efficiency, and durability under the most demanding conditions make them the natural choice. Remanufactured DENSO alternators go through a grueling process. Stators and rectifiers are tested to 300 volts, while rotors are submitted to 600 volts, all to ensure reliable performance. Rotor slip rings are buffed to an 8 micron surface finish, with runout limited to 20 microns, minimizing brush wear and abrasion. Bearings are validated to OE standards and loaded with premium OE standard lubricants. New or remanufactured, a DENSO alternator is a quality component. Offered in versions from 40 to 160 amperes and beyond for hundreds of specific vehicle applications, all alternators meet DENSO's rigorous First Time Fit standards. Contemporary cars employ dozens of sophisticated electronic systems from bumper to bumper, placing heavy demands on the charging system. The alternator is no place to cut corners. DENSO First Time Fit alternators meet or exceed all manufacturer standards, mount properly with a minimum of installation issues, and provide years of reliable service. Features. Premium cores and precise OE assembly benchmarks; Design to meet the grueling heat and electrical requirements; First Time Fit provides perfect mounting with no belt/pulley alignment issues; Benefits. Service professionals preferred DENSO's alternators for a trouble free solution; OE quality fit, appearance, and durability; Full compatibility with sensitive electronics systems; Compact and lightweight design

Fuse box diagrams for 1992 ford explorer

Question From Guest on Fuse box diagrams for 1992 ford explorer

I have a 92 ford explorer and need a diagram for the inside fuse box. I bought the truck used and there is no owners manual. Trying to trouble shoot a dying battery and the alternator is not the cause. Battery is brand new, two weeks on truck. Nothing left on battery dead as a door knob. When the battery is charged and we are connecting the cables to the terminals there is a clicking sound as if there is something on.

Question From tooke on 97 Ford Explorer

I was driving my explorer home the other day, and the radio started flicking on and off. then i was losing acceleration, and everytime i pressed the break my console would make a dinging noise. I managed to make it home, and it wont start. The ABS light was on, but I just did my breaks a couple months ago. could it be the alternator?

Response From Discretesignals

It could be, but you need to start your diagnosis by charging the battery and then having it tested. Make sure the cable terminals are clean and tight after you reinstall the battery. Once you get the vehicle running check the charging system voltage at the battery terminals. Voltage should be somewhere around 13.5-14 volts.

Response From tooke

I put in a new battery, since my old one wasnt taking a charge. As I started it, the battery guage went to full, and then quickly went down to less than half. So I am assuming it must definetly be the alternator. I am getting a friend from the auto salvage in town to get me a used alternator, and i will be having my current alternator looked at and possibly rebuilt. Does this sound like a good plan?

Response From Hammer Time

No, it doesn't. Testing is a good plan. replacing parts on a wild guess is not.

Response From tooke

Sounds good! i will charge my battery tonight and clean up the terminal. Thanks for the advice

Response From Hammer Time Top Rated Answer

I'm expecting a charging system problem but you can't get an accurate test until the battery is at full power.

Response From Hammer Time

Charge and test the battery first and once you have a fully charged battery, test the charging system.

Question From Guest on stalled explorer

my 2002 ford explorer shut off yesterday and was dead when I went to restart it. I put in a brand new battery and it started everytime the rest of the afternoon. The battery I replaced was the original of this ford explorer. Today, while driving the needles of the guages flat-lined and the car shut off soon after. When I tried to start the car it was dead. It jumped very easy only to shut off again a short time later (like 5 minutes!). Alternator? Bad connection? Sparkplugs? Anything else? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Charge battery up again by charger. Dead batteries can kill an alternator and when battery is known charged again, check the alternator for output voltage. If it doesn't go up to ~13.5-14.5 +or- when running the alternator is suspect bad and you can have it bench tested to verify that,

Response From Guest Top Rated Answer

thanks, i was afraid of that. couldn't be anything else other than alternator huh?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

There could be a fusible link, fuse or wiring connection fault at the alternator. You said battery was orig in a 2002 vehicle and that's really pushing the limits of any battery life and it would be a weak link with alternator problems or caused the alternator to work like crazy and burned it up. Even with your jump with new battery after it went dead the alt was strained again hard enough to wreck a new one all over again. It's like playing ping pong with each other able to hurt the other.

Look for burned or overheated wires to alternator and have it tested off car. If it's good (doubt it) then let's see what else we can find that would disable it now. What did the volt test show with battery known charged separately?

Question From tiger88mm on 92 Ford Explorer,motor running has huffing sound

1992 ford explorer,xlt,4.0,about two weeks ago alternator was over charging so replaced with new one,every thing back to normal,then about three days later noticed a huffing sound from exhaust kinda sounds like-"huff-huff -huff-huff if said real fast,noticed that a vacuum tube was off from the valve that goes to the evaporative canister,,reattached but problem still exits,now I'm starting to notice a oder of sulfer/rotten egg smell,however there are times that it seems to smooth out when engine gets warm,im not sure where to look at next

Response From Tom Greenleaf

That canister is to collect fuel vapor and burn it off in engine when told to. If hoses are off or not working perhaps it filled with too much and became raw fuel and now you smell that burning off of converters which isn't good for them but it all was right that should end and noise be gone.


Check for condition of hose and if canister is still wet with fuel. Not really related to the alternator IMO but may have been bumped in changing out alternator?

Sound like you are describing a misfire. Need to figure out which cylinder is missing and then determine why that cylinder is missing.


Response From tiger88mm

exactly what is sounds like-i'll start with the spark plugs especially the one that I have been able to get to
