  • 98 202 doesn’t seem to be charging

    Where do I start looking for on this issue? My voltage gauge reads nothing when running so I am guessing either my alternator is bad or there a bad wire somewhere. BTW the boat had a mercruiser 8.2 in it. I didn’t have a volt meter to check if it was charging while running. What are my options?

    First, check the battery and battery connections. Will it charge on a charger? If good then check the alternator voltage output while running. Then check voltage regulator for voltage output. Fix what doesn't work.

      Thanks, I will have to get a water boot so I can run it on a hose

        I found a loose ground wire on the alternator itself, I hope that fixes it

          I am reading only battery voltage at the alternator with it running (12.34). Does this mean my alternator is shot?
