Delco Remy Director of Aftermarket Randy Andis and Purkeys Senior Service Engineer Larry Rambeaux give a quick tutorial on remote sense alternators. They discuss how to test if all of the alternator’s output is getting to the battery. Then they show how to locate the remote sense lead, and how to upgrade a fleet to take advantage of this product. The remote sense lead is a second wire between the battery and the alternator’s remote sense terminal. It ensures the batteries quickly return to a full state of charge and remain near full capacity.
