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!
Larry

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.

Thank you so much for your answer. My initial estimate was $325; I got it done for $100 - part and labor.
