Hope everyone is doing great?
Regarding my issue.
I am the proud owner and restorer of a MINI 1987.
Now recently we wanted to go for a little ride, bearing in mind that it hadn't been driven since bout midway november we expected the battery to be flat. Using a booster we got it running and we departed. I would say about 15/20 minutes later the engine died on us. We later found out that the battery had died on us again. So here is our confusion. Seen as during the driving the alternator should charge the battery and provide the engine with electricity if the battery fails to do so. Why then does the car stop running? So what we want to do is to see if the alternator is actually generating electricity. Any Tips, ideas or common mistakes from you guys?
Looking forward to hear from you all,
Tim and Niels
