    5th alternator in a month...help.

    could it be either or does someone have a pretty good idea on which one could be bad?

    5th alternator in a month...help.

    which wire, the one going to the starter or the smaller one going to the starter silenoid?

    5th alternator in a month...help.

    the wire going to the battery from the alternator is 0/1 guage lightning audio wire. it's wierd though, the volts will read about 13 and then instantly drop to 9 then really quickly fluctuate as i'm driving and then it will drop permanantly down to 9 then it might, after a while, go back up to 13.

    5th alternator in a month...help.

    i did some research and i think i found the answer, it's my positive wire coming from the battery, i didn't think about it until mbrooks mentioned it and it turns out that's a big issue for these trucks and you can't even see the corrosion b/c it's way down in the wire so i'm going to go fishin...

    5th alternator in a month...help.

    5th alternator in a month...help.

    yeah i thought that too but too test that i turned on my amps and they started blinking telling me that the volts are low and i had the system turned off when i was driving. i'll do the volt test on it tomorrow, i'm gonna stop by autozone on my way to work or home from work to get it done. my...

    5th alternator in a month...help.

    yeah the guage and if i turn the amps on they blink telling me that i'm running under 10 volts. when i'm moving the volts don't move hardly at all which would lead me to beleive bad alternator. the wiring from the alt. to the battery is 0/1 guage with l.a. battery terminals and connectors (90...

    5th alternator in a month...help.

    i had all the amps turned off and disconnected to make sure already but there was still the low volts. i also had the heater/ac turned off and headlights off. i revved up the engine but the volt meter didn't move, even with the new battery

    5th alternator in a month...help.

    so we just swapped out my battery with a battery from another explorer that had a decent charge on it and i still got the same problem. i even kept my headlights off and system off and i was right about 9.5 volts. any other thoughts

    5th alternator in a month...help.

    when i go to pep boys or autozone they always tell me that my battery is fine, they do their little tests on it, but maybe it is the battery.

    5th alternator in a month...help.

    my volts are at about 9 and i can't fix it. everyplace i get it tested they tell me it's the alternator and the battery is fine. i replaced the alternator last night and once again i'm at 9 volts. my lights are dim and it won't let me switch into overdrive (i'm guessing it's some sort of...

    ohm load question

    8 feet, dang. this system i've been talking about is going in my brothers neon. i'm going to be starting a worklog here pretty soon for mine, it'l be 3 15" type R subs and 3 1600 watt amps. i already have everything it's just trying to find someone with a table saw, lol.

    ohm load question

    so is the way fortune was saying to wire it right for 2 ohm load?
  17. M

    ohm load question

    no you are right, it's been a while since i've wired subs to a two channel and it's kinda comin back to me. now in theory if you bridge the wires coming from the subs will that knock it down to 1 ohm?
  18. M

    ohm load question

    i think i got it. now to get the wires from both voice coils from one of the subs into one channel of the amp will in need to connect the wires somewhere before it goes into the channel or can i just run a wire from the - to + on each set of voice coils?
  19. M

    ohm load question

    sorry forgot to mention that they are dual 4 ohm voice coils

    ohm load question

    first gen. clear tail lights

    I just finished doing the strobes. i already have 3 sets in the headlights so hooking up two more was pretty easy. you just drill a 1/2" hole or two in the back of the tail lights. i stuck one strobe box to the 4-channel amp rack and the other to where the jack used to go. then i grounded...

    first gen. clear tail lights

    i got them in finally and put them on. they look very nice but i've been having a lot of electrical problems so the brake light doesn't work on the pass. side. i bought some red bulb covers for the tail light bulbs so they wouldn't just be clear. i also bought some strobe lights to put in...
