View Full Version : Alternator Problem in 89 240sx

Yesterday morning I go to start my car and low and behold, it won't. Battery is dead.

So I charge the battery and it starts, and my dad and i figure it's the alternator, so i take it up to the auto place up the road and get them to bench test it, he said it works, but not properly. (what alot of help, and to think he would have charged me $40 if it was still on the car!)
He said it could be the Regulator or the Rectifier Diodes, or brushes maybe.

Now has anybody had this problem or have any clues of what to do?

Also, Alternator model # is LR180-715
Does anyone have instructions for rebuild?
