[DML] Re: regulator problem vin 3579.

Two things go check.  First measure the voltage at the output of the alternator...if it is correct (above 13 volts) then start looking for bad grounds and + 12 volt connections.  

Checking the alternator output (from its output terminal to the case of the alternator)  will show the condition of the alternator.  After that bad grounds or + 12 connections will show as voltage loss.  My favorite suggestion is, after the alternator is eliminated as a problem, measure the voltage between the case of the alternator and a ground point in the car...if you see anything above one or two tenths of a volt, then start looking for bad grounds.  This is best looked for with a system load...lights on or lights and a/c on with the motor running.  All will be revealed.
