If you have not checked for any blown fuses this needs done.If any fuses are found to be at fault this will need corrected.If all fuses are checked and found o.k. check for any broken or damaged wiring leading to and from the alternator needing repaired.If this is or was already checked and found o.k. let me know.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation.
