No doesnt sound defective if it works, but your alternater may not be powerful enough to maintain both your battery and car needs as well as power your amp. Best idea would be to look into getting a different alternator with a higher output.

You are drawing more amps than you are recharging. Is the car stock or modified? Make sure you have the proper amp alternator for the car first.

If you do you will have then have to do a parasitic draw test to find the culprit.

You have to use your meter in series with a battery cable
on Milli-Amps

You now need wiring diagrams, to continue as your doing,
& find your test points, or things to unplug, as your doing

Keep in mind--- the radio clock & computer KAM-- will draw 50 to 70 milliamps

You have to leave the doors closed--- so all modules & relays
go to sleep--- & stay that way

Battery drain

Remove the negative battery cable, connect an amp meter in series, between lead and battery terminal, should have a reading of approx 0.05 amp (Time Clock). If higher, then there is a drain, remove the fuses one at a time and watch for a drop on the amp meter. when it does you have found the circuit giving trouble. I would expect a reading of about 8 amps if it's the defog causing the problem. You could try taking the defog switch out first to see if that's the problem.

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
4. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

Replaced altenator & battery wont hold a

You either have a short or a power drain. You may have a defective mercury switch in the trunk which is leaving the light on. This would drain the battery in a few hours. Also check the switch under the hood. The easy way to check this is to unscrew the bulbs & see if that solves the problem. Good luck!
