Recently, the alternator was not charging the battery well. Performed voltage drop test with a battery load tester connected to the alternator. Wow... 0.95 v on the negative side (and 0.16 v on the positive one). Sure, it would not charge!
I am wondering if a nice jumper from battery negative terminal to the alternator ground will do for now (until I have the time to redo all negative side with cables, connections, grounds).
Thereís nothing as permanent as a temporary solution.
