Hi! Wondering if you can help! Mazda 3 1.6L (diesel) year 2009. 240000 kilometers. Battry indicator on dashboard came up when one morning I was gonna use the car. It had gotten colder (first cold night - below zero celcius) so was thinking battery would be at fault but I got this battery only a year ago! The battery seems ok. 12.7 voltage (could be better) when car is turned off and starts the car without any problems. When starting car the voltagemeter shows 14.1v for almost a minute, then drops to 13.2-13.3 and stays there most of the time, however sometimes during driving it drops to 12 and down below 12 voltage then after less than a minute it goes back to 13.3v. Hooking car up and running ForScan, I get: ===PCM DTC P1632-64=== Code: P1632 - Smart alternator output circuit Based on this information, can source of failure be narrowd down or can it still be problems with wires etc? Thanks!
Alright I'm not to vehiculary inclined at all. I've been having the same problem for about a 1 1/2 year or so. If I turn the ignition to just have power but not running and have the ac running, doesnt matter what setting HI or LOW, it just shuts some power off. I still have dash lights, not sure about headlights. so when I go to start the engine all that happens is "clicking" like its trying to start but just wont start. The only way to get the engine to turn over and start is to jump satart it. I have replaced: alternator, serpentine belt, air filter, and spark plugs. The battery is about 2 yaers old and has been tested, works just fine. Hoping for help, at least suggests. 2004 toyota 4runner SR5 Sport Utility 4D V6, 4.0 Liter Four-Wheel Drive about 112000 miles
