New car, has issues.
I bought a 93 3.8 bird a week and a half ago. Everything worked fine on the car and the volt gauge sat at the "M" in NORM. After a few days it worked its way down to sitting at the "N" and a little below. The other day the car died while heading home at night, and had to have a friend give me a jump. Got about 4 miles before it died again and needed another jump. Since the gauge has read around the "N" my turn signal,rear defrost, and A/C controls dont work.
Thought for sure it was the alternator since it didnt seem to charge at all. Replaced the alternator two days ago, after testing it in car and the battery tested fine, but the alternator was putting out low voltage. The volt gauge didnt move from the lower reading and my signals,defrost, and A/C still doesnt function. With the battery charger on the car the volts read higher on the gauge, but as soon as the cables are off it drops back down. I replaced both battery cables, and even swapped in my battery from my mustang.
Also had a volt meter on the car and with just the car running it was low 12's and with the lights on it was med 11's for volts.
What could be the issue, I have no idea and this is supposed to be my daily driver, but it is having more issues than my stang...I am getting really frustrated.
