1997 900 SE: SAAB..light coming..the console controls going

This answer was rated:

How long and How much should it cost to replace a SAAB 1997 900 SE Alternatory. I've had a bell go on and battery sign go up (it's a new battery). I've driven for a week with a brake warning light coming on and the console controls going off for second while highway driving. Is this an alternator problem


this does sound as if you have a charging problem..

first,you need to load test the charging system,,if you have no load tester,,most auto parts stores will do this test for free,,this will in fact determine if the alternator is bad....this alternator may cost around $300+/- and may cost $100 to install
