Postby hinkle » Sat Apr 29, 2006 8:53 pm

today i went threw 3 alternators (cuz i thought they werent working properly) trying to solve my battery drain. from fully charged battery will put out 12.3 or so and the alternator will put out around 11.7 when running. i know it should b 14 something so. when i drive it for 10 mins or so it completely loses all power. the fuse works so thats ruled out. any one have this prob b4?

nope, but why go through 3 alternators? are they all new, or used?

i got them from the junkyard down the road, and the one on the car was supposedly new (from napa) and the ones from the JY are denso's from a supra and a camry...n we figured they werent working when i put the first one on so we took it back n got another (from the camry) and it did the same thing so we assumed its not the alt.

Check the harness from the alternator, sounds like you've got a break somewhere.
