    Turns out I just had a dirty connection on the alternator - It was fixed for free, some I'm back on the road! :)

    Next pet project: Get Jerry an Ohm meter and make sure he knows how to use it. Glad to hear you saved a bundle.

    Jerry,
    Great to hear that everything worked out. Now that she's in perfect running order, it's time to take her out on a canyon drive! Early Feb!!

    Hm, what day in February are you thinking of? Unfortunately, I think Im going to have to miss out on the event. I am packed solid all month with concerts, auditions, rehearsals, and more. I even have to miss my own birthday for an all day rehearsal at Cal State Long Beach...No Crystal Coves or anything this month :(

    Believe me I will try! Ive got a big orchestra commitment that falls on the first weekend in February. All day rehearsal Friday, All day Saturday, and all day sunday with a concert later in the evening on Sunday. Tough and tiring to last through that stuff but I dont htink I can get out of this one...Then on the 14th Ill be busy all day again along with the rest of the weekends in Feb.

    Actually, I think this Saturday is my last CC for a month...

    Well then, I guess we will have to make it a good one! Anyone have a good excuse to make a pass on the toll road again?
    Maybe some Texas Hold 'em at Slags?
    The Mini chase scene from Italian Job at Brians?

    I'm in 62nd out of 840 in a Texas hold em tourny right now. There are 696 players eliminated. $4,072 for 1st place. I need to make this happen! :)

    Texas Hold Em at Slag's is always a good idea!

    I'm not 100% sure of the game plan - I am hoping he makes it to my house & then we go to the coffee bean from there - I'll let you know.

    Yes, if you could read that the output from the alternator was well within the charging range, then you have to deduce that the problem is a weak link from the alternator to the battery. You could then check the voltage of the battery (while it is disconnected) to determine it's output and recharge as necessary. If your battery still goes dead, you have narrowed it down to the leads. Often what happens is that in the process of testing you stumble on the bad lead in the process.

    Sorry to hear you busted out of your tournament. I am now sure if CC is going to happen for me this weekend as I would have to get up at 4:30. Cheers,

    -Jay.
