Any thoughts besides the alternator being weak i cant think of why it would cause this but even with a weak alternator i figure it shouldnt shut my car down

  1. Normal
  2. I would imagine an inverter is too much of a draw on a brand new alternator. The car audio guys can prolly shed light on what sort of alternator is needed.
