Just replaced my bad factory alternator with a DC High Output alternator. I'm curious what the voltage should be at the alternator? I checked the voltage with a meter and at the alternator post and I'm reading 14.6 volts. When I look up battery voltage on my Edge CTS is reading 13.9 volts. So am I ok, is the voltage to high, to low or am I in the ballpark? Thanks!

Yep. The OBD port will read about .4volts lower than at the alternator
