OK, so my original question then.... Do you have a voltmeter?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I have explained in my notes whats been happening and you ask me if i have a voltmeter,I dont believe your a hyundai mechanis what a waste of dollars
Expert:  George H. replied 6 months ago.

You told me you had done all that when I asked about a voltmeter so if you have what is the problem?

I don't know what you have done but I do know how to test the system, as I am not there to do the testing you need to do it so I know what the readings are.

If you want to find the cause of why you have installed 3 alternators and are about to put another one in I can help you but when you tell me you checked and everything is fine I can't help you with that

what more kinds of detail do you need
Expert:  George H. replied 6 months ago.

Sorry, I was not up at 1:21 when you replied, you will need to measure at the large wire terminal on the back of the alternator and see if you have the same voltage as you can measure at the battery posts.

Let me know what you find
