Adjustable Voltage Regulator, 1980-91 VW Vanagon (Does not fit Diesel Engines)
Adjustable Voltage Regulator, 1980-91 VW Vanagon (Does not fit Diesel Engines)


 
Adjustable Voltage Regulator, 1980-91 VW Vanagon (Does not fit Diesel Engines) is a fantastic product! This is easy to install on the back of your stock alternator, and the adjuster is easily accessible. This is a great product to bump the charging voltage, the stock setting is too low, which results in dim lights, erratic operation of all electrical components, is very hard on the alternator, and the battery never fully charges!

ACN RECOMMENDED!


All of these symptoms can be fixed for good by adjusting the charging voltage at your battery to 14.5V, by installing this regulator, it takes 10 minutes to do! Many customers have reported their "charging voltage" in the mid 13 range, which is pitiful! Our personal Vanagon charged at 13.7V, which meant the battery was never fully charged, and headlights were not full brightness! Adjustment is done with a small screwdriver in the hole you see in the back of the regulator; simply rotate the screw clockwise to increase voltage, or counter-clockwise to decrease voltage, you want to shoot for 14.5V AT THE BATTERY.

The regulator is quite sensitive, small adjustments make rapid changes, so go slowly! These regulators are factory preset to 14.5V, which is a great voltage to start with. We do not recommend higher than 14.5V, even though the regulator will adjust up to 15V. You do need a volt meter MEASURING THE BATTERY to properly set the regulator. We strongly discourage using dash gauges for this purpose, since there are too many things that can cause inaccurate readings!

Installation of this part takes no longer than 30 minutes, and you must disconnect the battery prior to installation for safety.

As advertised! May 12, 2013
Reviewer: Jeff Fischer from Midvale, UT United States  
Just like the description, we had a battery that I always thought was "weak". I check the voltage at the battery, and it was 13.6V, so ordered this.

Installation took me 15 minutes! The output adjustment is touchy, I had to go back and forth 4 times to get it right. But now our headlights are much brighter, I can't wait until we can afford a South African Grille Kit!
