2000 Toyota Camry 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic
Hi all. I am having a problem with my car. At first, when I tried to start it, no luck. Figured it was just a weak battery. I then had it jump started. It help up for the day.
After that, I bought a brand new battery. It stared the car fine for a month. After that, it drained overnight.
I then figured it was a bad alternator. Got that replaced, and then up to this point, the new alternator is not even able to keep the car running! Basically the car would be running off of the battery's charge, and shut down after draining it. A running engine should not need a battery at all, but in my case, it pulls juice from the battery.
My conclusion is that the something is keeping the alternator from flowing it's generated power to keep the engine running.
What could it be? Wire problems? Fuse? Rotor/field coil (whatever that is)?
Please help. I am so lost.
