Your troubleshooting assistance is a scam. You have not provided me with a definitive answer; of course, I suspected an alternator problem. I did expect a detailed opinion from you. I will be contacting American Express to cancel this transaction and investigate your validity. If you wish, you may call me @(###) ###-####to discuss at no additional cost to me.

how is this a scam? there are a few ways to test a alternator...with a volt meter the alternator should be putting out 14 to 14.6 volts any less it should be replaced..most parts stores like auto zone or advanced auto parts can test the alternator on the truck or off the truck... but all your symptoms say alternator failure
