34 month old battery went so dead it wouldn't take a boost. Put in new
battery and it started right up. Tested alternator with voltmeter. Output
was 13.4 with no accessories. With everything on it dipped to 12.4.
Chilton manual said anything under 13.5 is bad alternator. Went to Strauss
auto for free test. Tech said alternator was at 13.7. and system is ok.
Tested other cars to see if my tester was ok. All cars showed 14.2 with no
accessories and little fluctuation with accessories on. My gut tells me the
neon alternator is bad. What say anyone else?
