try disconnecting your alternator and c if the volts still drop. i had a focus tht was losing charge wen switched off and it was the alternator drawing current

hmm the main priority is u need to find what's draining the battery , doesn't matter what voltage is in the battery ,

TBH mate i think you gonna have to get a car electrician to look at it

Alternator is naff. Sounds like rectifier is fried allowing current to flow into windings and draining battery. Easy test is as you have done already, pull all fuses and only thing left connected is to starter motor and alternator. Disconnect alternator and reconnect everything else check voltage. If no voltage drop then replace alternator. Try scrappy or Halfords do a decent price when you return/take in your one.

right problem solved, my mechanic took it away for the week whilst i was away and fixed the problem. in his words he replaced the main power lead from the starter to the alternator, the exciter wire for the alternator and part of the first ignition wire and that seems to have solved my problems. thanks to every1 for all there help and info. just wish i knew more about cars myself.lol
