Well, this might get real technical ok? Might want to get a pen and paper to write all this down.

The voltage regulator's main purpose in life is to do regulate the voltage to the car so that we dont catch it on fire.


Sorry, couldn't resist with all the pm's we have had back and forth about the locks.

hahaha

lol.. funny.... i better clearify.... mostly wondering how you can tell it's going bad or if it's putting out too much, or if it's fluxuating, ie. does it put more power out on acceloration or does it remain the same? that kind of stuff.... oh... say i take it to autozone and they check my alternator and it tests out good, does that automatically mean that my regulator is operating as designed....

hey hpservertech..... i'm going to need your address.... you must want me to visit....

j/k

Sure, come on over any time.

1600 Pennsylvania Ave
Washington DC

As a matter of fact, just climb over the fence, no need to go up the driveway.

hahahahaha
