Customer Question

2006 Monaco Diplomat. Alt charge light on dash came on and the alarm sounded. A new alternator was installed but problem persists. The old alternator checked out OK when it was tested later. The dash voltage gauge reads between 13 and 14 and the Alladin system reads 13.0-14.1 volts.

It sounds like the alternator's regulator has failed allowing the alternator to overcharge. The regulator or alternator in some cases needs to be replaced before further damage is done.
