Question about 2000 Lexus ES 300
The alternator and starter are about 10 months old, and the battery is about 8 months old. I took the battery out put it on a trickle charge, cleaned the terminals, checked the fuses and checked wires to and from the battery and the alternator for any obvious damage. I then hooked the battery back up and started the car, letting run for about 1 hr until it shut itself down.
Alternator or associated wiring suspect... test for 14.4 volts at battery when all is hooked up proper and running.. if less replace alternator or diagnose further the wiring to and from alternator

Testimonial: "Thanks milespeed. The battery is running proper voltage when it is all hooked up, so it looks like alternator is the issue. The thing that is still confusing me is that I am able toget a voltage reading from my alternator as well, so it makes me think the wiring is no good."
