Okay I have a long explanation and a very confusing one.

I drove my car as normal, I had a single-din deck installed along with 2 sun visor TVS. About a week later all lights illuminate on my dash (with the exception of the battery light) the car begins to splutter until it shuts off. I replaced the battery thinking that this was a dead battery but I put the new battery in drove for about 45 mines with lights and a/c on. Car dash starts to freak out again and car splutters until shutting out once again. I tested the alternator and apparently it was not charging the battery, however the battery light was NEVER ON. I put in a remanufactured alternator and car battery light came on which means that the battery isn’t getting charged as the alternator is not outputting any power. Im expiercing the same issues with a brand new altenator

I will take this to the shop but I would like some feedback as to why it is doing this and if you guys can think of ANY reason why this is happening please, all responses would be thankful.

Thank You!!

Get out your multimeter and start checking voltages into your fuse box. My way of testing if alt is working is to crank the car then disconnect the battery. If the car shuts off, your altenator and/or the connections from it are shot. Then troubleshoot from there. And, I'm sure you've already done this but check your fuses.

You can also check the wires from the installation and see if something is grounding out. That could cause all kinds of problems too.

Thanks for the reply. I checked all the fuses, and changed the cables; positive, and negative. Any other suggestions would be great. I would hate to take this into the dealership for diagnosis.

Thanks Again,
Chris
