Upgraded to a 320i alternator and it is acting wierd. With the key in the off position, the alt light comes on. With the key in the on position, the alt light goes off. With the engine off there is 12.4 volts at the battery. With the engine running there is 12.2 volts.

so did I screw something up or is it just a bad alternator. Seems pretty hard to screw up.

thanks

key off. That should kill everything. Did you have the alternator tested prior to install? It should charge at about 14 volts. Did you disconnet the voltage regualtor?
