giardia...

Twice for me, not how I like to loose weight.

The charging volage will be higher when cold since the battery was just drained a bit. Once the battery is charged the voltage should drop to 1/2 to 1 volt over battery voltage.
Variables do exist.


Cheers, Charlie

Autozone it's like the twilight zone for auto parts <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

Anybody remember the orginal Twilight Zone the episode with William Shatner. He is flying in a airplane and a grimlin is on the wing pulling parts out <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

If you thought it was her face that burped and smelled like that you are in desperate need of an anatomy lesson <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/scared.gif" alt="" />

He must have been a Rosicrucian, because the alternator has become "dis-amorced". JUST made it home last night. I back into my driveway. The current draw of the brake lights as I came to a stop dropped either the fuel pump or the ecu power supply out of the loop, and killed the engine. She ran all the way down to 8 volts, though. Pulled out the one month old AutoZombie reman alternator, returned same, filed claim for 4 hours labor at $60/hr. From the time I left the house to get the new reman until I reset the radio code and sat there contentedly watching the 13.7v on the gauge at idle was 5 minutes under 2 hours, on a 3.5 with the alternator on the bottom, working from the top.

Notes on the failure. Review the above noted symptoms. In final failure mode, it charged at 16v pegged on the gauge until about noon each day, then would barely charge at all, none at idle, and never made it above 12.3v on the gauge. If charging early in the am when it was cool, you could run all the amp eaters at once and it still charged at 16v. Late morning, and you could only use low a/c fan speed, no headlights, and no wipers, or the alternator could not keep up, and battery voltage slowly dropped. Yesterday late, it died the final death.

The new reman is a Talon brand. I've had good luck with that line before. New brushes, new regulator. Coating on windings looks more substantial. Came with dielectric grease already on the plug in terminals and a new boot for the fat battery lead. Nice piece of goods. We'll see how it lasts. $214 plus core. Autozombie was 234 plus 95 core.

That is close to smoking some circuits and bulbs.

Yup. I loaded it up as soon as I'd see the high v. The alt wasn't making enough amperage to hold that voltage against fan and RWD loads.

To beat a dead horse, I'd avoid AutoZombie remans of an electrical nature...
