Yes you can,and car will remain running if your alternater is good.But if you are doing that to see if alternater is good or bad I DONT RECOMMED DOING THAT!!!!You can take your alternater to your auto parts store and they can do a bench test on it.MUCH SAFER!!

If you want to fry your electronics then go ahead and do it. That test is for old cars that had small output alternators and even older generator vehicles.

I just answered the question.Then I told him that its not reccomended that he should.THATS up to him!

Dodge and chrysler cars are very sensitive To voltage spikes and can damage P c m and other powertrain components.

Use a good volt meter to check voltage amps can not be checked using this method 12v does not mean amp output is good
