    95 chevy again.... electrical

    i was lossing power this morning, so i removed the alt, took it in , and it tested just fine

    re-installed it, with the same problem ,

    just for kicks, i took a jumper cable from the post batt term, to the pos on the alt, and the voltage went up it was good

    i havend check for loss battery terminals yet, (its cold out side) but there are two batteries, so i dont think they botho would be loss. anyway

    ill be pulling it in shortly., i just wanted to know if there is something i should check...is there a charging system fuse? or something you know about. im sure its not that hard to figure out, but any inside tips are always helpfull

    thanks always

    hey elite use a meter to test output from alt and at the batt should be the same if not the wire might be rotted out.

    If you upsize the wire when you replace it you will be happy with the results.
