How many CCA battery is in the Bonneville SSEi ? Ya load test it...
If you have a battery with removable caps, check the water level and if you have a battery tester/hydrometer, see how each cell state of charge (specific gravity) is doing.
It may need a good charge to bring it back up. I tend to manually charge once in a while, as it is cheaper than long hwy runs in fuel to charge them up. City short driving trips really does not charge a battery much.
Is your ALt a 125 amp or 105 in there?
I have a custom 160 from Quality power, it tested out at 155 amp at 1800 rpm.
The problem still remains that these alts only really produce good amps above 800 rpm and idle on the Pk Ave is 600.
Not enough juice at idle stopped with air/lights etc on. Solution a smaller diameter pulley & new belt will help on any Alt.
