Ok everything worked out but now my voltage is 11.9 while the car is running, could the regulator be bad?
Hi,ok, give me a couple of minutes to pull up my schematics for this one.
Hi,the regulator is built in to the alternator, so technically it should be good. most likely it is a defective alternator out of the box( seen this too many times to count), but to be sure, you need to go thru the following tests just to rule out a short or open in the wiring harness:
now when the car is off the voltage is 12.3; however when i start it it goes down to 11.5 what could cause that?
Hi,it sounds as if the new alternator is discharging.
