1979 Chevy Corvette V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 82000 miles
I have a 79 vette that must have some electrical problem. It will start fine if I start it about every other day. If it sits longer, the batter goes completely DEAD. I have stored it in the garage over the last 3 months for winter. Got it out today and tried to jump it with my 02 Chevy Impala (always worked great before!). We hooked up the cables correctly. My impala was running. It charged for a few seconds. I revved the impala and when the rpms went back down, my battery light on the impala was red and my warning chime was going off and my husband was yelling the the corvette was smoking. The vette was not running. Battery still dead. We popped the hood on the vette and it had burnt metal/rubber smell coming from the alternator. Did I fry it? Did I fry my whole electrical system?
have the same problem?
