Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question. Have you checked for codes in the computer? Can I start by getting your VIN?

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

The previous tech has opted out. Would you like me to try and help with this possible alternator or PCM issue?
