Thank you.

Re: Battery goes dead while driving

What is the voltage at the battery with the engine running?

Do not have a voltage meter to check it will try to get one but we just yesterday put a new alt, and Battery in it and they drove about 60 miles or more and all was fine today he went about 30 miles and died. while i try to get a tester on it what else could it be other then alt, or Battery?

Connections or wiring.

Re: Battery goes dead while driving

having the same problems, i just put a new alternator and also battery in this week but the battery light stays on and it doesn't seem to get a charge, only thing left to check is the connections and wiring, unless these cars have some sort of voltage regulator or something, but i would think that would be part of the alternator
