1991 Dodge Dakota 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 221000 miles
Installed new alternator apparently hastily but hey lesson learned. Vehicle is still not charging battery Voltage reads 12.18 drops to 12.08 when accelerating the recovers to 12.18.
So I now begin to test for a short in system
Voltmeter between ground cable and battery ground reading 11.3v slow to climb and fall.
Remove alt connections to alternator voltage still there. Started removing fuses to find circuit, found one in powerblock (eng compartment). Large 15A lost cover so positive ID not possible. Though with key on it spurts the Injectors briefly and adjusts the (idle control?) When reconnecting.
