Coming home from work, the radio died, then the tachometer, then the car.
I figured the alt crapped out then drain the battery ( 1 year old )
Got it off the interstate and replaced the alt, charged the bat, went
for a test drive and it died again. Something is draining my bat and not
allowing the alt to work.
Any suggestions ???????
The fact that you indiscriminatey replaced a bunch of auto parts
without doing any testing indicates to me that you are most likely an
auto mechanic. You should not bee fooling with automotive electrical
stuff, you will only make it worse. If you have a friend that owns a
voltmeter, ask them to drop by.
Thanks to all that wrote back .....
I've since discovered that when I initially charged the battery I only
had 11.71 volts. This alternator will not start charging if less than 12
volts exists .... must be a no burn out feature.
