RE: [DML] Re: Bad alternator?

Me again - John, even 0.1 Ohm is way too much. 
Starter sucks at least 200A from the battery 
U=R*I -> 200A * 0.1Ohm = 20V ! Battery has only 12V !
The current would be limited to 120A and the position 
where this resistance occurs would glow...

Think more of something like 0.00x Ohms !

Not measureable with a regular DMM.
