1999 I30: battery light and the brake light came on..alternator

Resolved Question:

I have a 1999 I30. Yesterday, the battery light and the brake light came on. Am I looking at an alternator replacement, or could something else be the matter? If it is an alternator problem, how much $$$ might I be looking at?

Hello and welcome to Just, Super mechanic here. About your vehicle.


You will want to check the fuses first, being that the brake light is on as well.

At the worst if it is the alternator, they are available after market for about $160 (Autozone)
