My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
My info is limited on your model here but I see no one else has responded and thought I would see if I can help here.
Check the wiring to the alternator and make sure no wiring is found damaged or shorted in any way.If an issue is found with the wiring this will need to be repaired to correct this fault here.If the wiring is o.k. I would have the alternator/generator tested to see if it is shorting out internally causing these issues and if a fault is found it will need to be replaced.
Thanks Pete
