    either the alt or regulator. how did you check them to determine they were good??
    have a shop check it to confirm.

    What did it end up being? We are having the same problem. Replaced voltage regulator, Battery, then Alternator, in that order. Still nothing. Ammeter was out so we replaced it and it shows discharge.
