Hello out there! I am having a bit of a small problem! I noticed last night while driving home from the All Ford Car Show that my lights would dim as I stepped on the gas and my voltage gauge would dip between 11-14. This leads me to believe that I might have a alternator problem. I have a 2003 300 A MM with a Trilogy Supercharger. I never had this problem before. Does anybody have any idea what the problem might be? Please help!!!!

I do not know if this is a duplicate thread or not....

Here is an alternator wire issue I had awhile ago. Search the Archives under Trilogy Motorsports.

Soldering the splice connection is one solution. Make sure you use rosin not acid core solder.
These days you can get solder with a good silver content as well.

This is another excellent solution:

It costs us a bit more to do it this way, but we feel it is worth it.

Looks like there's been a serious splintering. I never thought it'd be possible for this to happen to a group of owners of a car model that sold no more than 14000 copies over 2 model years. Kind of scary, when thinking of the scale. Makes one think that maybe it'd be a good idea to do some introspection and think about what each of us needs to do to build a solid community, analyze what it is we're all honestly looking for by belonging to this community.

Yes, a duplicate copied from Claude and Paula's anniversary thread.
