Lights pulsing...battery light barely lit. after you start the car don't push the gas...put a meter on the battery...have a friend rev the engine to 2500 to 3000 RPM...watch alternator kick in and even when idled to normal 6-700 range voltage will stay aroun 14.5 volts...im going to try this fix first http://www.teamwetworks.com/claymore/cougar/tsb00-25-06.pdf anybody hear about a higher output alternator fixing the problem?

The red wire is the power, the grren wire is your signal wire. the green wire sends the signal from the regulator to the ecm to tell it when to cycle the alternator on and off. you could have a faultyy regulator or signal wire causing the malfunction. the wires join the main harness after the regulator.
