Have you put a bigger alternator in. Possibly battery how much is your system pulling it might be burning out your alternator and your battery going bad from it it cause your system pulling everything and battery getting nothing. Just a guess.


I assume the "system" you refer to is one of those giant things in your car making all that noise and vibration besides MY car at a stop light. Suggest you look at the spec sheet and advise us of the AMP DRAW rating so we can determine if your battery and Alternator can handle the load. Santana is may need a larger battery and Alt. to maintain your hearing comfort level. Just for giggles...go to parts store and buy one of those cheap Volt/Battery/Charging system Meters that plug into your cigarette lighter. Let her rip and see where the meter reads when your engine is running. Good luck and get back to us with the result.


Crystal...did you ever resolve the issue with you "system"?
