    Re: Huge Voltage Drop Help

    are all your batteries new? unhook the last yellowtop and see if you still have voltage drop...
    you may have a bad cell in one of your batts...

    and get rid of the cap.... it is only good if you already have a super awsome electrical , and just want to stabilize the voltage.....caps become a parasitic draw when your electrical isnt up to par...

    Re: Huge Voltage Drop Help

    i think your problem is that your alternator isnt big enough. test the voltage out of the alt, it should be at 14V. Because your small stock alternator is trying to charge your 3 batteries and a cap

    the extra strain by adding the extra battery probably killed your alternator. get it checked at autozone if you want, but you need a ho alternator
