True or False? A faulty voltage regulator can only cause a no-charge condition.

To determine

The statement “A faulty voltage regulator can only cause a no-charge condition” is true or false.

Answer

The given statement “A faulty voltage regulator can only cause a no-charge condition” is false.

Explanation

Voltage regulators are used to control and maintain the voltage at a constant level. It regulates the charging voltage of alternator.

In case of faulty voltage regulator, battery electrolyte is depleted quickly. This happens when battery is constantly over-charged. This condition is also known as over-charging condition.

Another symptom of faulty voltage regulator is dead battery. Due to this, battery loses the ability to charge or stop altogether. This condition is a no-charging condition.

Hence, a faulty voltage regulator can cause both no-charge condition and over-charging condition.

Conclusion:

Thus, the given statement “A faulty voltage regulator can only cause a no-charge condition” is false.
