Do any of you know what happens when the alternator connector becomes unplugged to the alternator ?
Not the charging cable but the small wire connector plug.
Does it not charge the battery, or does it go to a constant charging state that could overcharge and ruin my battery ?
I just had this situation occur and my battery drained. It’s a brand new Red Top Optima, but when I put it on the charger at 10 amps it won’t even come up into the charging range, it’s still down in the battery test range which scares me because that’s what my old battery of 4 years did right before it went bad.
I have it on the charger right now at 10 amps for the next 4 hours to see if it will take and still hold the charge.
Please let me know if you’re sure what happens with the alternator when the connector is unplugged.
Thank You for your time...
