I'm chasing down a sporadic parasitic draw. The battery is usually okay for a few days, but occasionally drains below cranking capacity within a day. I had the battery and the alternator tested at a shop, and told both were fine.
I did a basic voltage test. Starting with a healthy battery...
Alternator is not charging battery - battery is good has been used in other cars, alternator is good has been rebuilt and tested.
brake light and battery light on.
Any ideas on what I should do? I'm thinking of replacing the wiring for the alternator.
EDIT: Tentatively Solved!
I think I have...
1995 gc8 I turn every knob where the heater/ac controls are, I press the buttons, no lights or anything. I think there might be a click but that's all. I've taken out the blower and tested it and it works fine. I really don't know what might be the problem or how to solve it.
Hi guys! so the alternator is making a grinding noise on my impreza. I was wondering if i should buy a new one from rock auto or get the one i have rebuilt? i could swap it for a sti one since i saw a couple of people doing it?
Its a 2005 impreza 2.5rs if it can help! thanks!!
