I probably will get a second opinion on the alternator,
but I am not running any accessories as you would think.
I don't even need a CD player cause I dont hear the lyrics in music.

whats your battery charge when its running, when its off?

when my alt. started going out, it drained my battery to about 5 volts and it was too low to rechaged fully to 13. I never had a problem with it not turning over, only a few times it would suddenly quit while driving down the street, but would start right up. If its not a ground issue, take the alt. to autozone, or other store where they can test it. my dad found a 3 page article why this was happening, and whats going on. Ultimately it was the alt.

I put a brand new Optima (yellow) in three days ago and then took it to my mech to test the alt; he said I needed a new one. Yesterday, I put in a new re-man alt and let it run for half an hour. This morning, it's dead again!
