is your car a turbo or non turbo for starters the grounding in the cars are horrible its an underrated alternator at 65 amps however napa sells a 90 amp but its almost 400 bucks and if its a turbo model with the heat shields removed its only inchs away from the exhaust

Above is right too, could also be a pcm problem not switching fields running full charge all the time.
