Alternator
« on: June 19, 2018, 09:58:08 AM »
Does Anyone know if the mk3 galaxy is fitted with the smart alternator charge system. I've got an error the the smart system circuit. Bit j don't see the 3 wire plug at the alternator
 All I see is the main lead to the battery
 And a plug with a single blue wire which n believe is the battery light lead.

It should be smart charge.  Certainly was when built.  But that doesn't mean that it is now....

I had a 61 reg MK3 and that had the single blue wire, there are a lot of cases where the small wires break/corrode in the loom anywhere but usually within 2 feet from the alternator, not just on Galaxy's
