Is the battery going dead? If so, have you checked for an electrical draw? Are you purchasing remanufactured alts? Have you tried a different brand of alt?

Yes I have one thing this car has a system installed 2 1600 watt amps two 15" wolfers. I tried to find a capacitor for the sysytem but had no luck do you think that can be an issue also ahen I checked the alt I found the plug had been cut and the p terminal wire is missing only the f terminal is there. It is a 5 wire plug with only two wires I am trying to find a schematic for it
