Its brand new as well.


Probably a parasitic draw, why did you change the Alternator no output? was it bench tested or did you check it at the battery for long does it take to discharge the battery overnight or in minutes or hours? I suggest checking ALL grounds and connections AGAIN

the battery has some charge. The lights turn on. Not enough charge to turn the trunk on. it turns over very slow.


If your not sure how to check or do some basic testing, with a multimeter or don't have one. It's best to have it looked at. You can spend a lot time guessing. Tell the shop you want 1.The battery load tested. 2.The alternator output checked 3. check for parasitic battery (draw) drain. 4.starter circuit voltage drop test . ASK HOW MUCH
