JA: How many miles are on the car? Will the battery hold a charge?
Customer: 120k and I have driven a few days at 12.0v with the 2 batteries of course I have charged them
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: I have tried checked the wires to make sure all grounds and power are clean and tight on all connections and have replaced the regulator on my upgraded alternator 2 times now.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Mercury Mechanic should know about your Mercury?
Customer: im curious to know about to the yellow wire coming off the alternators plug harness to what importance it really is. i also have all 0 guage wire for a audio system ran with fuse blocks installed at all power sources for a better control. all fuses are good as well
