    Re: Alternator problem… again.

    Not only are the repairers a 90 min drive from me; I removed it from the car & took it to them; they couldn't (and can't) test it in the car; only on a workbench. They did replace some parts in it...

    Re: Alternator problem… again.

    This sounds likely - where would I find the voltage sensor? - I imagine it isn't part of the alternator itself; if it is part of the charging circuit - I can maybe find it if I trace around the...

    Re: Alernator charging problem.

    I plan to cut and solder a new wire from as close to the alternator as I can right through to as far as I can define the thin wire; thus replacing it as best I can and see whether this makes a...
