Could It Be Alternater Problem?


Recommended Posts

today im at a light and my radar detector started going on and off. also the lights in my cluster went dim. im on the highway i would apply the brakes and i notice the headlights would go dim along with instrument lights in the car. they would flicker when i put the signal light on. this is my third alternator in 2 years. i checked the fuse for the alt and its fine. i need some input please.

If you still have your old OEM alt. or can get one, take it to a rebuild shop, they're much better than the otc rebuilts. Get you a little DC volt meter & put it across your battery posts so you can see what's going on, should read 13.5/14 volts, engine at idle speed.
