Greetings,i double checked the wiring at the alternator just to be sure. no problems there. also checked the power wire out of the alt that charges the battery and its crimped into the battery cable where it connects to the battery. battery terminal was a little loose so i tightened it and retested. still 9.33v. i will test the battery at work tomorrow but ive never seen an alternator that shows charging at 9v and have the battery causing it. but i will double check. i will take the alt back out and have it tested just to be sure i didnt get a junk reman like ive seen too many times before. also i have a question. is this alt controlled by the ecu? i would assume not due to the fact of only having 2 wires on the alt connector. thanks.
