Battery light on?

Well I just got done changing up a few things on my s10 and now my battery light says on. Well I started with a fbody bracket and alternator and I changed to the corvette alternator and bracket with power steering. That was the only thing I chaged. I didn't mess with any grounds and used the same power wire to the alternator. I tested the alternator and battery, found out the my red top battery was bad. Got a brand new red top battery and the light is still on! Anyone got any ideal what it could be?

Re: Battery light on?

Get a schematic on the Vette one and see what has to be done.

Re: Battery light on?

I am not sure what year the alternator is. All I know it's from a c5. I'll have to look more into it.
Does anyone know if a fbody alternator will bolt right in the c5 bracket?

They said to the battery fuse. They said when I get to the point to wiring it to just give them a call and they would tell me where. So you might just want to give them a call

Re: Battery light on?

I got my wiring harness from Jared at Cpw too. But when I hooked mine up my battery light came on. Im using the Ls2 corvette alternator. After inspection the F terminal was pinned out wrong on my ecu. After switching the wire fixed my problem..

BTW Im in no way talking crap on Cpw or jared they are Awesome products and refer them to anyone..

Re: Battery light on?

Same boat as me. theres been some complications but I still wouldnt have it any other way. Do you happen to remember which circuit or name listed on the pin you had to move it to. I have a wiring schematic and pinout for the ecu and tune Im using.

Yeah mine was the f terminal on the alternator plug. It was pinned into connection 2 terminal 75 and it should have been connection 2 terminal 52.

Re: Battery light on?

What was the name of the circuit if you know? My ecu and tune are most likely different then yours.

If you have a c5 alternator and are coming from a 1 wire fbody alt. you dont need a wire going to the fuse box it needs to go to the Ecm.

You have 2 main wires from the alt the Generator turn on signal and the Generator Field duty cycle signal If you dont have the cycle signal wire hooked up the battery light will come on due to it not registering that your alternator is charging correctly.

Re: Battery light on?

I just looked through our build sheets and it does look like there was an error in some of our stuff. Some of the harnesses were built with one of the alternator wires going to C2 75, when in fact it should go to C2 52.
So, Anyone getting a battery light on might take a look and see if there is a wire in the wrong spot on the red computer connector.

C2 75 is the right spot on some of the later computers, but if your light is on, might try switching that wire to pin 52. Should be a gray wire.

Re: Battery light on?

With those pins possibly mixed could that throw the gauge reading off? If I unplug my alt. My gauge still reads, and no matter what it shows 2+ volts higher

I think yours may be a different issue. You probably need a generator battery control module on the neg battery cable.

Re: Battery light on?

saw this post ways back and it had me hoping this wouldn't happen on my truck, however it is.
i have the battery ligh on.

my alternator also has one brown wire and is a LS2 alternator.

i called Jared on it ways back in November and was told I wouldn't have the light on, though it is.

what can i look for or do to correct it?

Re: Battery light on?

just checking a note i had from Jared and he mentioned that, the one light brown alt wire should go to:

C2 Pin 15

i do have a light brwn wire running there but also have another light brown wire in C2 Pin 2.

on the alternator it has three connectors with only the one light brown wire going in.
that one wire is on the connector to the very left OR driver side.

Re: Battery light on?

I am looking forward to hearing about this.

Great of Jared to work with you. He's super helpful!
He's helped me out on several issues that didn't even relate to things I purchased from CPW.

Hope it works out.

I'm on a waiting list to be called back myself.
You can't pass emissions here with any dummy lights on.

Can you post pics of what you received?

Re: Battery light on?

Every swap I have done has this same issue. Easy fix, pull the cluster and break the bulb or put a black piece of a sock or something in the cavity for the light on backside of cluster. Problem solved.

Re: Battery light on?

That would solve crap!

Would still throw a code and couldn't pass emissions.

What code??? Maybe I am not reading something correctly but I think the OP is only trying to get the battery light from coming on, no code.

Re: Battery light on?

you probably need two wires going to the pcm from the alternator. a brown or red one in c2 15 and a gray one in c2 52. The brown or red one should be in the b position on the alternator and the gray one should be in the c position.

Re: Battery light on?

Pair of needle nose pliers would get the light out too.

Re: Battery light on?

Wheres the bulb for the batt light? I've taken the back black cover off the IP and all I see is the circuit board.

Re: Battery light on?

They are surface mounted LEDs, just find the one behind the symbol for whatever lights you want gone and rip it off the circuit board. Pretty easy to do actually.

Re: Battery light on?

Depends on why the light is on, with some of the newer computers, it takes a generator control module to be wired in just to turn off a light.

Re: Battery light on?

I guess I would rather buy a generator module that way I don't get stranded. To each his own though. I have not had the pleasure to mess with any new style ecms so thank you for enlightening me Jared.

Re: Battery light on?

On mine its charges at 13.8v at all times. So with the reading Ive done theres a fault somewhere in the field generator circuit. the pcm tells the alternator how much to put out on the newer setups. '10 Colorado os on '10 e67.

Re: Battery light on?

When you pull the back cover off it will look like this.



There are some small white clips that hold the board down. Unhook them and flip it over. The just pull the bulb out that's behind the battery sign. This pic kinda shows you what it looks like. I pulled the abs light and a security light.
