I have a friend with a mid to late nineties chevy 1500 pick up. 350 v8. He has a loose battery post (positive) and on occasion has to twist it a little to snug it up so the truck starts. I noticed though, that while the truck is running, if you disconect the battery it will shut off. His alternator seems to be working just fine. It supplies 13-14 volts with the truck running and lights and stereo on etc, and his battery always has a charge. I have never had a car or truck that would cut off with a good alternator if you removed the battery terminals and was just curious why his truck will? Truck runs like new so I am asking just for knowledge.
have the same problem?
