So my first issue with the Regal (LS swapped). Car hasnt really held a charge since coming home. It would sit between 7-10 days between starts. So figured it was due to it sitting. But now that I'm out driving it more, it doesnt hold a charge. Pretty much have to jump it or keep battery charger on it if it sits overnight. Battery is brand new and had it tested at 2 different Oreilys yesterday and both said its perfectly fine. 28 mile drive to suspension shop, sat inside overnight and they had to jump it the following day, same thing when I brought it home. Now what I'm leaning towards and not sure how to tell if thats the issue. Original alternator was a 4 pin, I purchased a 250 amp high output alternator for my subs/amp. That alternator is a 2 pin, but wired up using a 1 wire pin, see link. Prior to the swap and having the original alternator, I never had this issue and thats why I'm leaning towards alternator plug. Thoughts and how would I could I test if the 1 wire pin is the issue? Also using below on positive of battery
This alternator plug-pigtail incorporates a Weather Pack style seal and an in-line resistor that allows, but does not require, a charge light in this exciter circuit. The exciter wire is blacked out as it leaves the alternator plug, so that little bit of wire going into your flex loom isn't as...
