Default Voltage regulator...

Where would the voltage regulator be located on a 90 SSE? I cant seem to find it in the FSM..
I'm starting to think that my voltage regulator is having problems, since I've not fried 2 Twilight Sentinal modules in my car, my power seats and power doorlocks aren't working still...

It'* built into the alt. When my twilight sentinel module fried I just unplugged it & turned them on & off manually. It sure looked like a fire hazard to me.

Default reg

Regulator is built into the alternator attached to the rectifier.
If it went the car wouldn't charge at all or it would overcharge the batt.
