If the alternator tests fine, why will you replace it? If your battery is holding a charge, the vehicle starts and is running okay, what is the problem? ------------------------the battery only holds a charge until i add a load (headlights, defrost, heat, etc). come to think of it, the voltage dropped as soon as they put a load on it at autozone.also, the car starts up slowly and it's pretty rough. and both the headlights and dashlights are dim. i've definitely got an electrical problem, i'm just not sure where exactly the problem lies. i've no idea if this is related, but the cigarette lighter is dead, and according to the past owner, it always has been. is it possible that there's a short which is creating a constant drain on the system? if so, how would i check this?thanks.
