Car cut off at the gas station a few weeks back. Jumping it gave it enough power to get 5 miles with the headlights on. Alternator was bad. changed the alternator. Still have a problem. Car will run forever with no heat or headlights, as soon as the extra load is added the abs light comes on. many times the abs light will shut off if the extra load is removed. I know the abs light is the first indicator of an extremely poor charrge in the system. I have had the alternator tested 6 times on 3 different occasions all of the tests say it is fine. I am getting 14.x volts out of the alternator installed on the car. The battery has been tested fine. I have replaced the ovp, all belts (to ensure good tension), and all the fuses with the copper style. I dont know if this is significant but the charging dummy light never seems to come on, just the abs light. What am I missing? I have to trickle charge the battery every few days. This has been going on for weeks.
