26SI Series Alternator – Electronic Control Module (ECM) – Replace

Before the PL522 or 523 is replaced, ensure that replacement is necessary. The PL522 or 523 is seldom the cause of a fault. Always check that power is available to the PL522 or 523. Battery voltage is required between contacts 1 and 2 of the machine harness connector for the PL522 or 523. Continue ONLY if all other attempts to isolate the problem have failed. Always consult your dealerships Technical Communicator for possible consultation with Caterpillar. This consultation may greatly reduce the time that is required for a repair.
