Autoelectro, UK independent remanufacturer of starter motors and alternators, has revealed a solution for a common Ford Transit charging fault.
The Transit issue originates from water and dirt contaminating the crankshaft pulley, leading to excessive vibrations within the auxiliary drive belt system and, ultimately, causing a charging fault with the alternator, according to Autoelectro.
If a technician diagnoses this fault when inspecting this specific model, Autoelectro recommends replacing the crankshaft pulley and auxiliary drive belt.
Autoelectro also advises that a splash guard should be fitted to avoid reoccurrence of this problem; otherwise, it’s likely the vehicle will be returning to the workshop sooner rather than later.
“Complex technology and, consequently, accurate diagnosis is challenging technicians; therefore, up-to-date and regular fitting and technical guides, like the Ford Transit bulletin, to assist them are pivotal – which is where Autoelectro delivers consistently.”
From its Bradford headquarters, Autoelectro supports its customers with an inclusive service, which offers full cataloging of more than 4,000 individual references and online sales access, but it is spearheaded by its technical service.
