Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] 24 volt charger on Yanmar quit working causing DC panel light to indicate fault

Hello Ben:

Different engine on our boat, we had the ground cable to the alternator pretty much broke which caused the non-charging. Our friend (SM2k with yanmar) had the same...same cause.
We both found it by tracking the cable all the way to the alternator.

Good luck,
Atman, SM215

My engine quit charging house batteries.  DC panel light is usually white (yellow) indicating engine driven charger is working . I noticed light went to a dim orange - indicating a fault - and engine charger quit topping  off house batteries.  I put a multi-meter on positive and negativ poles coming out of unit and it reads 24 to 25 volt output.  I assume a fuse or regulator issue .  Does anyone  know if there is an external regulator or fuse for engine driven 24 v charger?  If output is there I can not figure out why batteries are not charging..
