I've went through two alternators and my jeep still won't charge the battery.
First the alternator died a few months ago, replaced it and no issues since until last week. Alternator died again, took it in and got a new one because of the warranty and it was bad. I'm
About to take in my third one that I though was working to have it tested but wanted some opinions first.
Sometimes I'll be driving and my battery will be reading at around 14v but most of the time the gauge is bottomed out at 9v and the battery isn't being charged. While the gauge was reading 9v I got out and hooked up my multimeter to the battery and it read 11.8v.
Charging system works intermittently.
Anything that could cause this besides just bad alternators, I'm tired of swapping it out.
