Dear Mark V:

By your comments, I guess I will  let PJ Grady recheck my DeLorean's 
electrical system again for I am due to  their shop next week.

In the past, Rob and Pat haven't found anything  electrically wrong except 
with the cooling fan's circuit breakers and the  Fanzilla's connectors being 
over 
taxed under heavy use over the  years.   I have even upgraded the Fanzilla 
Series 1 to the  Series 2 two years ago upon Robâs suggestion.   And yes, Pat 
at PJ  
Grady does check all the grounding points on the chassis for cleanliness  as 
to insure a good contact, when my car is at PJ Grady at least once if  not 
twice 
a year. They know that my DeLorean is daily driven and I would  take long 
trips many times a year exceeding over a 1,000 miles one  way.   They always 
gave 
my DeLorean a good go over and if  anything that is not right, it gets 
corrected, no matter the cost --  electrical, mechanical or other wise.

About auto  amplifiers.   There are many "so called" high power amps on the  
market with some operating different or better then others and it has been  
that 
way for the last thirty plus years as far as I can remember.  

My experiences with high power amplifiers in my DeLorean are as  follows; my 
first one I had installed was Blaupunkt amp along with a head  unit and 
auxiliary CD changer unit back in the Fall of 1996.  I got  rid of the whole 
system 
after five years and replaced it with a JL Audio  300/4 amp and Eclipse head 
unit 
and a CD changer.   The JL amp  was good sounding but the JL amp drew too 
much 
power and with the  headlights and A/C on, the horns wouldn't work.   Also 
when 
the  audio system is playing and if I was to flash the high beams, the amp  
would cut out and come back on.   That was a nuisance, so I  decided to take 
the 
DeLorean to an authorized JL Audio dealer and  installer as to have the amp 
and 
the electrical system checked out... They  found nothing wrong and that the 
amp 
is functioning  "normally."   So, about eight months later I had the JL amp  
remove and replaced it with the Sinfoni120.4x amp.   This amp  has a higher 
power 
output and it draws less power than the JL  amp.   The Sinfoni amps is a 
great 
sounding amp and the JL Audio  amp now sits in the basement were I last left 
it some two years  ago.   

The alternator was updated, it is a 140 amp from Mr.  John Harvey some two 
years ago.   With ALL the electric  components on and while creeping in NYC's 
rush 
hour traffic, the  electrical demand will swing wildly between the battery 
and 
the alternator  in order to supply the electrical demand in the extreme hot 
and the cold  seasons.   As I was told, this occuring situation can or will 
cause  
an early demise to the battery and or the alternator as well.    I believe 
this is what is happening.   The bottom  line?   Next to the DeLoreanâs 
uniqueness, the sound system is  what I value when I am driving it especially 
on long 
trips.  

Anyway, maybe you want to take a crack in checking out my DeLorean's  
electrical system?   I will compensate you for your  time.   Maybe you may 
have a 
better understanding or have better  luck then us?
