I'm an old school mechanic, and my question deals with the newer model vehicles. If a car was equipped with a generator and you disconnected the battery while the engine was running, the engine would shut-off. Then came along alternators which made checking for a bad battery easy, because the engine would continue to run once the battery was disconnected. The problem i'm experiencing with this particular vehicle is once the battery is disconnected the engine will only run for about 5 mins. And then shut-off. Is there a protective circuitry in the new alternators that automatically cause this? Thanks in advance. Ken
have the same problem?
