Question about 2001 Kia Optima
Ther is an ECM circuit that controls the 2.4 Optima engines alternator on and off. It probably malfunctioned. Mine did, so I traced it down in a wiring diagram. You can not use the stock alternator to make a go around circuit as the stock voltage regulator in the alternator depends on that ECM relay. I rigged a PRE-2000 year alternator off of a Sephia engine. You have to make a custom upper belt adjuster. Good luck. My setup has worked for 3 years.
