RE: [DML] Re: Bad alternator?

Dave, Actually any more that .1 ohm from the battery ground post to the
chassis will start making the resistance to high and have an effect on the
charging system.

I'd say  anything more than a few tenths of an ohm would be bad,  and most
ohmmeters are not reliable down that low.  It should read less than 1 ohm

D² & 6530

One other item nobody has mentioned yet is if you still have problems with
the battery being under charged after the alternator is replaced, it could
be a bad battery ground. When mine was bad, I had the same problems. You
can quickly test this by checking the resistance between the negative
battery cable and the frame. Anything more then a few ohms means the
connection is dirty.
