I recently bought a used HO alt, I installed it and it seems to work properly, holds voltage in 14's mid 13's while driving and bumping. Problem is when I play songs that have spaced out bass notes my voltage will drop to about 13.5 but when recovering I've seen it as high as 16v
my info center will pop up with charging system failure. Even have had my amp go into protect twice over this
. I haven't been playing my system since this happened as I try to find out what the problem is. I don't want to damage my car or my equipment.
I bought a new smaller belt, and trying to scrounge up some funds for a new belt tensioner to see if that helps, I'm at a loss tho, I can play a test tone and have no issues, just on sharp hard bass notes. That is the only time the voltage goes over 14.8
Any suggestion on what to check will be appreciated,
