Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Can i pull positive cable to check altenator?

1 Answer


No. Do not ever take a battery cable off with the engine running, the resulting voltage spike can fry all the vehicles electronics. A customer of mine learned from that the hard way. At that time it cost him 1500 bucks to get it back to operating properly.
