Cool 91 rs electrical problem

I have a 91 rs. Edelbrock performer manifold and edelbrock headers. new throttle body, new auto tranny, Problem is after installing engine and fixing all fuel related problems, car runs strong except the battery drains after 20 minutes,. New alternater and new battery has not helped.Can not get it smogged because i cannot drive it to the shop or the battery will be drained. The speedo and fuel guage and i think tach is not reading. The air conditioner does not work even though the fan does come on. Is this a computer problem? Help

Have you checked the fuses with a test light or a meter? I think the guages not working could be connected to alternator not charging. If fuses are good check for voltage at the alternator with the key on nad post the results. The a/c problem might be lack of freon.

Re: 91 rs electrical problem

Is this why my battery drains after 20 minutes of running? Alternater was replaced and so was the battery/ Help
