Post subject:  Alternator

I bought two wagons last year out of the crusher and have had one of them on the road for about 12000 miles. The other one an '83 just got it on the road with new tires and a bunch of other work and insured it on the way to Home Depot :banana: Came out of the store to a dead battery :fuuuckyou: Got a used one outta the garage today and put it in :banana:

sure, wiring shortcut.
just measure alternator output, when operating, if this is ok, than you have to find out where shortcut is. I got this problems with another car, only when it was foggy and humidity in air was too high, - cables in engine room were wet... after three days, battery K.O.
