That is what it seems like to me. The second logical problem is that if the voltage from the alternator is getting to the battery in five minutes, then the wires between the alternator and battery are good, no? But it is a brand new alternator and I had it tested before I left the store - no problems.
Does anyone know how a voltage reg works and if such a delay is common??
