Have the alternator tested, a lot of remanufactured alternators are bad out of the box.

Just did, tests fine

Did you ever get your. 99 GM fixed

Yes I did the previous owner put a new starter on it and put the wire in the wrong spot instead of putting it with the battery terminal where where it should have been he stuck it on the starter terminal and it did it made everything just do all kinds of funny weird s*** once I found that it pretty much fix itself
