2000 Subaru Outback Limited Alternator Issue
Car: 2000 Subaru Outback AWD Limited 2.5L H4 - 212,322KM on it: Up to date with Regular maintenance
So, I have been having an issue with my Subaru for while, what happens is the car will be driving properly for a bit but all of the sudden out of the blue the ABS light will come on and then my gauges act up stereo flickers then the AWD shuts off and my lights flash and the car creeps to a stop, Since then I've replaced my Alternator with a Refurbished BOSCH AL4304X, and a new battery, the issue was gone for a few weeks then all of the sudden it happened again, but the car can be turned back on if jumped by another car but I can't have AC, Lights, or stereo, and it lags when turning on, Also, since then I hear a whining coming from the engine, and my brakes seem to seize on the front right end and they moan as well, when all this shutting down happens it resets my tachometer and resets my clock to 1:00.
So the voltage on the battery when off is 12.2V; when the car is on its 12.4V the alternator has the same voltage when its on, but when revving the voltage on the alternator jumps up, but when AC is on it drops to 10V, then just the lights 11V and the stereo is 11V, but when all are on it drops to zero quickly and the car shuts down and wont turn over unless boosted.
Any help would be much appreciated I am a first time posted so hopefully this post is suffice!
