HEEEEEEELP! I have an 87 Tbird LX with 5.0 litre EFI the instrument cluster is digital. First car wouldn't start battery dead. Replaced battery. Battery run down again. Replaced pos and neg leads and new acdelco alternator and also installed the new 3 wire connector/harness that came with alternator. Everything now seems ok charging at around 14.8 volts according to multimeter. 2 days later battery icon flashing in instrument cluster indicates low charge.I took alternator back to supplier and installed replacement. Same thing. I noticed a small squarish black plastic piece in the wiring harness BEFORE the area where I spliced in the new 3 pole connector body that came with the first new alternator it does not appear to be openable, would this be a fusable link? Without unwraping all the insulation on this harness it looks like the 2 heavy guage wires from the connector transition into one single conductor. Anyway this is driving me nuts and as I live paycheck to paycheck I can't afford to take it to a diagnostic expert. ANY responses, ideas and tips/info would be greatly appreciated. 8)
have the same problem?
