    If search was working, I'd say use it, because I'm SURE I saw that someone had the exact same issue you are having. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Bout the only thing I can think of is to Install a diode between the alt and the ign. I have never done this but I heard it works for your problem. I think some parts companys make them that plug right in the wireing.

    ****EDIT****
    I did a search and came up with this.

    Check with a local electronics store. A 5 or 10 amp diode (which is what the one in the pic looks like to me) should only cost $1 or so. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
