Recently my car died on me while driving. All the lights went dim and it finally pooped.
Charged the battery back up and it cranked over fine and then slowly the lights started going dim again.
Well I was driving behind my friend one night and he said my lights were really dim, then a few minutes later got bright again.
The next morning I tested the voltage output on the alternator with my multimeter by the positive terminal on the alt. and the ground on a bolt and it was 10.87 and was slowly dropping to 10.86, 10.85 etc.
So I replaced the alternator, even though when I took it to autozone it tested fine. I'm still having the same issue. I checked all of my grounds, and the wiring to the alternator, checked all of the fuses and everything is as it should be.
So then I thought well the battery is obviously bad, changed it out. No dice. I have no idea why my car won't charge. I've continuity tested every fuse I can find 10 times. I really have no idea what is going on. Is there something in the wiring that could be messed up?
I checked the wire in the 2 pin connector to make sure it was seeing the voltage and it is, so that can't be it.
