When I drive around in my car and I turn on my system its like my car is being "drained" of energy. Is this bein caused by a drain on my battery? My lights dont dim. and I have a capacitor, but wat happens is my idle drops and i have to push my accelerator further down to get goin and my car gets harder to start after turning it off. Im pretty sure its my alternator, but i might be wrong. can u help?
If I turn up the volume to a middle to high volume then I do have a little dimming, not noticeable, except the dash it dims a good amount and so does my clock. I only have 1 Lightning Audio amp that is putting out 250 watts rms, plus I have a R.F 1.0 farad cap. I wont have this car much longer. next week is my birthday and Im supposed to get a MAzda MX6 but I wanted to be sure it was the alternator in case I come across this problem again.
