Can't drive my truck! Need help ASAP with Electrical
Hopefully i can get some help here
I drive a 2001 3.0 v6 4x4 AT
Alright so i went to start my truck this morning and it started. I let it warm up for about 30 seconds then it started chugging so i let it run a little longer and it was just getting worse. Then my lights started dimming and the radio shut off so i shut the truck off.
No other cars at the house to jump it so i went to school came back had brother in law jump it and follow me to autozone.
They tested my battery and he said the alternator wasn't doing anything. Drive back home (died 3 times) went and got an alternator off of an explorer (130 amp) Guy guaranteed it to work or he had another one he would give me.
Went home put it in and same problem. I tested the battery and it is only getting 12.28 volts. Not enough, so i wiggled the plugs and wires to see if they were loose and no luck nothing jumped up or changed it just slowly dropped.
Now i have no ride!!! Need your guys help
I had both alternators tested, (old and new) Both Passed. i bought a new battery and had the starter tested and it's good..
I don't know what too do next
