New alternator problems
My alternator recently died, so I bought a brand new one (this is for an EB XR8 btw) Ok, got the new alternator, put it in. After a long drive, the battery light is still on. The voltmeter in the car reads around 14V when running, battery is fully charged.
When I test the battery with the car off, multimeter reads 13.4 Volts. ?!? Is the alternator over charging? Also, my head lights are flickering when idling. Not going dim then bright, but normal then brighter. Almost as if the alternator is putting out too much charge. But when I test the battery when car is running, 14.1 Volts, no matter what revs. The output should be 14.8?!?
Is there another regulator apart from the one on the alternator? I had a quick look, but can't find one.
