RE: [DML] Bad alternator?

Everyone has told you about the door lights causing the problem. But, You
need to charge the battery over night to a full charge. The Ducy most likely
won't and even with the door light problem fixed keep the battery from
draining down again.
The Ducy when warmed up and or hot will only generate about 70 amps at about
5000 RPM's which is about 2500 RPm's on the car RPM gauge.
My alternator special at 10% off will end the end of this month.

So I have a bit of a situation here, you see after having my DMC sit
for 2-3 days untouched I sit down and turn to key to find that
though it cranks the engine will not fire up. after all why should
it: the battery guage is slightly lower than what it usually is. Now
right now my quick fix for this is to set the battery on the slow
charge for 2 hours or so than its ready to roll and the car fires
right up.

Now I know what your thinking? Bad Battery right? well the battery
is a brand new optima battery and ive only had to recharge the thing
becuase of my DMC about..5-6 times. As far as the alternator goes in
this story, it is still the original Ducellier 80 watt alternator
