07 yukon xl, combining the trucks electrical system with audio side..

Recommended Posts

I Have been running my truck and lighting on the stock alternator and electrical system. I have 3 370 amp CES alternators running the audio side of the truck.  07 yukon xl 5.3

I have ordered a 270 amp CES alternator to go into the stock location and I want to combine the truck and audio side so they are not seperate anymore.

Has anyone done something similar and did you run into any issues? The stock alternator is controlled by the pcm and it shows 15.2 volts on the stock volt gauge in dash, at times it shows around 13.5 or so.

From what I have gathered in my searches The only issue i will have is bypassing the pcm and from what I see it only causes a battery light in the dash.

The final destination here is to run all 4 alternators on a adjustable external regulator that is setup to control all 4 alternators and have the ability to shut off each alternator individually...

Keep them separate. Also 15.2 is high.  Do you have your truck side ground ran through the battery current sensor?   If you have a ground on any battery for the stock side it needs to be ran through the sensor or it will cause a high charge like you have now
