Electrical problem
1997 Chevy Malibu 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

my car drags when I try to start it. It sounds like the battery is dead, but I used a volt meter on it and it is fully charged. How do I see myself if the alternator is bad?

Do you
have the same problem?

Take your car to a parts store like advance auto parts and let them do a free alternator scan to see if the alternator is bad or not

Thanks, I actually did just go ahead and buy a new alternator for my car, I bought a 105amp. Unfortunately, it still drags a little, any other suggestions. Thanks for your help
