Question about 1999 Chevrolet Lumina
Was the voltage checked at the battery! if not, check it at battery. at least 14 volts or 14.2 volts at battery with vehicle running. if it is less, then you may have a bad wire coming from alternator to battery or a bad battery ground. vehicle when engine is off should read at least 13 volts or a bit higher. make sure battery terminals are clean and tight. the cable connecting alternator to battery has a fusable link in it. if the alternator is over charging it will blow the link. also you may have a light or other thing that is not turning off. good-luck! let me know if you fix it ok!!
