Re: Bad Altenator?
Alright Gentleman, final answer, alt, was shot. put the new one in, connected all the widgits and whatchamacallits, and guess what, the battery light came on when i turned the key, (went off like it was supposed to) battery was reading 14.4 on the multimeter, lights were nice and bright, (brightest i've seen them since i've owned the old girl). Thank you everyone for helping me out, pointing me in the right direction, and just putting up with my strange ass questions.
