Hello,
The alternator has 3 diodes in it and when one goes bad the Battery light will com on and still charge, but as soon as another one goes bad it will not charge at all and kill the battery. The problem is you wont know when one of the other ones goes bad so thats why they make the light come on to tell you the alternator needs replaced ASAP.
Guaranteed to take care of the problem, and dont let a parts store test it and say its good because they dont know as much about these circuits as i do. They sell parts only.....and sometmes act like they fix them too...lol
Happy Holiday my friend!
