1992 Oldsmobile Toronado 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 108429 miles
Car was doing fine, then was used 3 times to jump son's car -
The voltage reads between 10.5 and 11.6 most of time after start-up. Then sometimes - it will just go up to 13.7. And stays there - that is until I shut off the car.
I had alternator tested both on and off the car. I had it tested at bot readings - 13.7 said nothing wrong working fine - 10.5 said battery too low to test - rplaced with junk yard alternator - same problem.
Took original alternator to get tested (off car) it tests good.
What id I do?
FYI - I am on disability and can no-longer afford $185 for the alternator.
have the same problem?
