Prelude just dies on me, any help?

Just recently I put some new NGK Plat in my SH, and after that I've had problems with the battery dying on me... My alternator is putting out approx 14.4v pretty sure thats a good amount, and with the car running the battery has around 12.3v. After a few hours of driving, or 3-4 times of starting the car it will no longer start, and while driving sometimes I can tell when its dying because the meters, and ABS light turn on for some reason. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks a bunch!

If you have your old plugs put them back in and see if the old plugs do the same thing.

Start easy then work your way up.

Did you get the correct plugs? Like 99Lude said get the old plugs back and see what happens.
Do you know any similar lude around? GEt the new plugs which you're running now and put them on the guy's car. See if same happens.

How old is the battery? It seems wired that new plugs would make it go dead.

Sounds like incorrectly issued plugs.

well i pretty sure u want ur car to be running at 12.6. Well thats what i was taught. also im not really sure wat voltage the alternator should be running at but im pretty sure its also 12.6... if u go higher or lower its badddd!!!! i jus got done doing my homeowrk so i dont feel like looking in my shop manual again for these things... sorry...but if someone says im incorrect ill make sure to look in it immediately to give u the right answer but im pretty sure im right... so if its to high u could have damaged something and theres a current just running threw instead of being caught threw a resonator.
