Thread: A23-24 Voltage Regulator

  1. #1

    A23-24 Voltage Regulator

    Far too often, the voltage regulator gets replaced, when the problem
    is elsewhere in the system. The new VR then gets to compensate for a
    corroded connection, weak alternator, or some other ill and sets
    itself up for future failure. Presumably on some dark and dreary IFR
    approach.

    Bob Steward has done a great job of describing how to go through the
    system and diagnose problems, potential problems, and steps to take.
    It's on the Grumman/Yankee site and also is copied in the BAC
    archives. My suggestion would be to start with that!

    Thanks. Lots of pilots have had charging system failures, and it seems
    that many mechanics slept through the electrical troubleshooting class in
    A&P school.

    Here is a link to the Grumman site Bob Swaim was referring to. The basic
    concepts of alternator troubleshooting are the same, no matter what brand
    of plane you have, but the wiring and location of the regulator, etc. vary
    slightly from brand to brand. Hope this helps.
