Electrical problem: Low voltage and battery doesn't charge
I just picked up a '92 cherokee laredo to use as a beater on the farm (pics as soon as I get a new camera).
When I got it the battery was dead. Jumped it to get it home. My bro and I have since changed the battery. The problem is that it needs to be jumped every time even though I disconnect the battery when it is off. The voltage gauge only reads about 8v and dips lower when I use the power windows or seats.
Does any one have any wisdom to offer. It runs so I assume the alternator is good and all the electrical components work. Thanks for any advice.
