Question about 2000 Toyota Celica
When driving with headlights off during day, car runs fine. when lights are used at night, lights go dim and car dies. battery drains down and when recaharged will run for awhile. new battery and alternator is good.
Here is a tip check to see if all ur contacts are clean and making a proper connection I once had a problem with a car that was doing the same thing i bout a new alternator drove it around and battery died on me battery was good so i took it to auto zone and they did a battery inspecting which includes the alternator being checked it turned out that the new alternator was not good
Another tip check ur alternator wire harnest it might not b locked into position sometimes the clip that locks the harnest in place breaks and if u think that just by connecting it It will work fine any bump on the road will cause ur harnest to move or not make contact
