Charging issues... Frustrated
Ok so here is my setup:
Rear mount battery setup
Brand new Optima red top (Second one in a year)
3G conversion (Tested alt good)
Brand new starter
Mark VIII fan conversion with the proper fuse
All wiring is 1/0 guage, Ground to rear quad shock mount, front grounded to sway bar mount, both engine grounds in place on back of engine.
Stock fusible links in place on solenoid
Stereo unhooked, alarm unhooked.
Here is the problem: When the battery is fully charged, I will get a few tries out of it, and then it loses enough charge that it will not turn the starter over. I then have to jump start it, and even then I can only do this at the solenoid, it will not carry enough juice from the rear battery. The wierd thing is, when I purchased the car from a friend, it was the same setup minus the fan setup I put in it. This worked fine when he owned it. I have tried disconnecting the fan too with no change. If you leave the battery connected, in a couple of days it will be drained down to almost nothing. I have read a lot of posts on this issue, and have tried a lot of different things with no success. Just wondering if anyone else has this setup with this issue?
Thanks for any insight.
