    Problem with van alternator

    I put the van alternator on my truck. 1990 2.4L. The gauge is reading above 16 volts. This is too high isn't it? Could this cause damage to the battery or is that normal for the van alternator?

    16+ is too high. I would look into another alternator. Was this a new alternator or used?

    It was new. Yeah I test drove it around the block and could only get the voltage to drop with the lights on and heat on full. I'll just trade it in for a stock one. Thanks for the input.
