battery light came on,,, drove some miles and slowly it died. Assuming it is alternator problem. I want to check if going to aftermarket alternator or taking from dealer is better. After market from a tire shop labor and part is 480 and via delaer is 660 (out of the door).. I am torn which route I should take. It is a lot of money . Both are giving 12 months warranty
JA: Have you tested the battery? Have you tried testing the alternator?
Customer: yes, I tested at samscluib and mechanic said it is perfect.
JA: What is the model/year of your Honda?
Customer: 2007 odyssey

Customer: not fixing myself. Called a local shop (has presence in several states) and dealer Dealer informed they will use honda part with 12 m warranty. Other shop also said same . There is a 200 $ difference. what route should I take
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
