To update you, last night I yanked my whole wiring harness. Found no shorts in the 4 plug connector, the wiring from the alt. positive terminal to fuse box to battery checked out good, 'charging/battery' light checked out good, relay works. I replaced all my ground wires with 4g wire. Block to body, body to battery, battery to block.
Even after all this the alternator still would not work. I guess sitting for half a year killed it. It is an OEM alternator that showed no 'dim dash lights' it simply just wouldn't put out voltage.
I had a spare 'duralast' alternator sitting around that I popped in there. Dash lights were dim, battery/brake/coolant - but the odd thing is, if i reved to 3.5k rpm 1 time, the alternator would kick on and stay on till I shut the car off.
is with these cars.
