could a bad ground on the coil screw with my alternator?
i got the multi tester out today and it showed the same thing as my dash mounted volt meter...
when alternator is connected without fuse (no connection to battery) it puts out 15+ volts... does the same thing when alternator is connected to nothing(took wire off of positive post)
when alt is hooked up to battery (with good fuse) it puts out the normal 14 volts... but it constantly blows the fuse after a few minutes of driving
its a brand new (rebuilt) alternator from advance auto parts... i just put it in yesterday
anyone have any ideas as to what the hell is wrong with it?
could the battery somehow be screwing it up? i wouldnt think so because the only time the thing runs normal is when the alt and battery are connected, but i guess it could be
