Ok my 96 S10 blazer I only got it like 3 months ago and never had any problems with it other than the voltage has read a little low then every once in a while it would dive down into the red and then didn't want to really run .then I changed out the alt with one off another S10 . installed it and started it rite up bat light went off all was fine next morning went to work and the but light came on if I gave it alot gas or took off at a light fast it would go off so I changed it back it got worse and back again and got worse so I changed an in ling fuse link started checking wires and all . But knothing .but ok on the back of the alt there's what looks like two wires it one eyelet wire connect with a line fuse and then there is one brown wire that goes to a plug into the alt and then there's an extra wire I know does not go there it goes from pos bat to the back of the alt I took it off but then there's no power to anything put iback there's my power but does the same thing ant idea

It sounds like you may have a failing voltage regulator. When the voltage regulator is not working properly, this may result in the alternator allowing too much power to be delivered to the battery resulting in damaging wires and prematurely sometimes destroying the battery. In other cases it may result in the alternator not supplying enough power to the battery, resulting in undercharging the battery or not charging it at all. In some cases when a battery is too weak or damaged, it may no longer hold a charge for any length of time, in which case the alternator may be doing its job, but the battery is just simply too weak to hold a charge. In either case, I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose your vehicle’s charging system.
