i'm not completely checked out on GM cars anymore. that's why i like
but, back to the problem. here's what's going on....
1995 pontiac transport - 3.1 engine.
problem: was driving - everything was ok. pulled off interstate and
came to stop sign at night. the lights dimmed, the electrical gauge
dipped from normal voltage level into the red, which is around 9 volts
and it stayed there. i live three miles away, so they drove to my
house in hopes of fixing it.
what i've found out so far: did the usual checks. belt is ok, took
alternator off and had it tested - checked out fine. battery also
checked out fine. looked at hayes book, couldn't find much in charge
circuit information, other than what we checked out.
next step - tried to change symptoms. put battery voltage directly to
the positive post on alternator to make sure that it wasn't a fusible
link that had opened up. no change.
with the engine running, pulled cable off battery and engine died
immediately.. alternator not outputting at all.
anyone got any ideas on where to go from here??? wiring all looks
fine. no strange smells or odors. just doesn't charge.
thanks in advance,
