    It is better to waste chi hair straighteners one's youth than to do noting bose on ear headphones with it at all. One cell phones thing I know. If a jewel falls into the nokia 8800 arte mire, it remains as precious as before; and though dust should ascend to bose in-ear headphones heaven, its former worthlessness will not altered.

    Hi, Here are a few things to check. 1) All the connections on the alternator and the battery, make sure they are clean and free of corrosion. 2) The installation. Double check that everything was installed correctly, and all wires were put back where they need to be. 3) Follow the wires from the alternator to ensure they are not chaffed or worn down to metal anywhere. 4) Lastly, it is possible that the voltage regulation circuit is bad. Many alternators have the voltage regulator inside them, but more and more vehcile have what is called EVR, it means the voltage regulation is done by the computer, which means you may well have a bad section of your computer. I'm not certain if your vehicle has this or not, but it is something to check out. Good Luck
