LOW VOLTS ON 94 GMC SAFARI

  • 1994 GMC SAFARI

I have a 94 gmc safari van with a 4.3

I will start by telling what I did wrong.
I was replacing the alt. And forgot to remove battery. Cable. Needless to say I ark-ed the wire for the main wire that runs to the starter from the alt.
I have had the Alt check and the out put is 14.9 and the voltage regulator is 12. I replaced the wire to the starter with a new one and still I read 10.2 volts. And after 3 days of driving the Battery. Will need charged. Could this be from a bad solenoid on the starter. Maybe I fried that too on my mishap. I need to get this fixed so the wife will for give me on my mishap. Any help will be appreciated.

Do you
have the same problem?

DOES THE BATT. LIGHT STAY ON IN THE DASH? HAVE U DONE A VOLTAGE DROP? ALSO HAVE U MADE SURE THAT THE TERMENAL FOR THE ALTERNATOR PLUG IS NOT SPREAD OR EVEN PLUGED?
