Actually electrical is not over my head, just trying to crowd source ideas with the data I had because I hadn't had much time to be able to diagnose at the vehicle on my own time. I don't see how having as much data as possible makes it seem like it is out of my realm of thinking. I like to rule out as many possibilities as possible, and it may have seemed overkill, but as well, I had seen many similar problems with varying fixes. I have solved the problem with a new TYC alternator from rockauto.comHonestly man you need to step back and KISS. Your reply is bordering on hilarious and its pretty clear electrical is a bit over your head. But fret not, it is over 95% of peoples heads.
My thing is, I didn't want to just throw parts at the car. Maybe your bankroll is enough to do things as freely as you like, but mine, not so much. So this is why I was trying to troubleshoot everything I possibly could. If I could have had the ammeter on the positive cable to the battery, it would have shown that the amperage while driving was insufficient to effectively power everything constantly. My suspicion of the ELD was simply due to lack of discussion on the exact way it works and the parameters in which it operates. So I'm glad I could modestly entertain you and help you to feel more elitist about your perceived understanding of all things electrical, but don't assume just because someone asks a lot of questions, that they don't have the understanding...there's always room to learn and always more than one way to get around a problem.
