Alternator for my 00 seville went out. I found one at a salvage yard from a 99 seville. Matched perfectly watercooled etc. After install Im having issues I dont understand. Its showing voltage ok on dash at 17.8 but it will still run the car no problem other than will not charge battery. I do have a smaller battery in it than called for. Could the smaller battery be confusing system some how? I dont believe that to be my problem but im not sure. The local cadilac dealership told me the 00 should have a 150 amp alternator and the 99 had a 140 amp alternator. And then at advanced when getting old alternator checked the one the sold for 00 was 138 amp so this dont make no sense but after doing some research Ive learned through one resourse that there is other differences in the 99 and the 00 oem alternators. Is the 99 compatible in my 00 or do I have another issue. Looking for for any help before I go back in to take investigate wiring connections and or take 99 off as this is not just any alternator change out thanks ahead
