As you know electrical problems can be difficult at times, so I'm going to have a few quertions and I'll see if I can make some sense of what's going on and help you fix this. If it's getting ;late where you are located we can continue tomorrow.

Do the exterior lights all work?

does anything inside work at all? dome light, radio, dash gauges, dash warning lights?

does it start and run and are you able to shift out of park?

Tell me exactly what does NOT work, thanks

obviously you didnt read what i wrote. Im not an idiot, I've been doing this for 40 years, trying to save some time and see if its a common issue. Please read what I wrote and then answer.

it runs, that's it. Charging system is not being energizing the alternator, pwr wds don't work, instrument cluster does not work, AC won't work. All happened while my customer was driving down the road, it happened all at once.

I read your entire text, there was no intent on my part to infer that you're an idiot, I always like to start with the basics first and i apologize that my questions offended you and I think it may be better if you worked with someone else on this so I'm going to opt out, the question will go back on the list and someone else will be along shortly to assist you, thanks for using just answer. Have a good evening.

Hello. Different expert here. Please advise of the exact voltage output at the alternator output terminal; then we can proceed.

I'm not going to read or respond after the way I was treated by this site. I cancelled my 1 month deal due to rudeness. Please don't bother me again
