Car cutting out when jump leads pulled off

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I have completed an engine swap on my glanza... it had been running fine then clumsy me dropped a socket on the positive battery stud. It sparked and the car spluttered. 

 

The car drove after that then it died. It starts with jump leads attached and will run unless they are on. I have changed the alternator and also the alternator fuse but still no joy... if someone could leave me some advice it's be great. 

 

Thanks 

Will.

Even with the battery disconnected the car will still run once started sounds like alternator is dead. Check charge rate while running with no load 14v on load (lights heater rear screen) 13.5v.

Plugged the multimeter on when the car is running with a strong battery and it's only reading 11.5V. I prepared the alternator the other week.

I checked with multimeter and it was reading 11.5V 

I think it's something between  the alternator and the battery but I just don't know what

Yeah that's to low even not running should be 12v+

Turned out to be the alternator belt, it was very worn. 

 

Thanks all for your help!
