Question about 1989 Chevrolet Camaro
Hello , A few days ago my alternator stop charging and took the battery with it. I got the battery charged over night (slow charge). The batt was tested after and was fully charged. I finally changed the alternator with a new belt and installed the batt to find out the batt was totally dead. Not even the lights came on .The battery was left out of the car after being fully charged for 4 to 5 days and then was installed with the new alternator . I recharged the batt with a charger and i was able to crank the car but now i notice that my volt gauges started to go down fast from 13 to 8 really fast till the the batt got drained (dead). My 89 camaro irocz had a 305 tbi . Now it has a 350 carb . I recently changed the batt to starter cable (positive) and also the batt to block cable (ground). The alternator has a plug that has two cables , one red leading to the batt and the other leading to no where. And theres also another red thick cable leading from the alternator screw to the batt .Can this be my problem ? please help thanks
