Hey guys. Got a pretty basic install in my 2013 Elantra.
Alpine Class D 450 Watt RMS Mono Amp
Alpine Class D 400 Watt RMS 4 Channel Amp
12" Memphis Audio Sub (300-600 Watt RMS)
1 Farad Rockford Fosgate Cap
Clarion 3 channel Crossover Network
0 Gauge Wiring from Battery to Cap, 4 Gauge from Cap to distribution block, 4 gauge to both amps - grounded to rear seat mounting bolt.
Yesterday I noticed the battery light on in the car for about 2 minutes then I parked and went into a business... came back out and the light was off... didn't see it again until later. Later comes on my way to dinner, all sound cuts out but radio is still on with nav running normally. LED lights in cluster start coming on, lights start to dim and I lost power steering. Pulled over to the side of the road and called for help.
Pops got there, jumped the car, removed the fuse from the power wire and the car has been fine ever since. Started right up after dinner, started right up this morning. Is the alternator just not strong enough for what I have? This is really not anything extravagant.
I'm going to take it apart this weekend to try to troubleshoot. Any possible ideas would be much appreciated!
