Is my altenator busy saying goodbye ?
Hi guys, My battery service light came on about a week ago, on low revs it stays on..above 2000rpm it goes off. Now the battery is completely dead ! Does my altenator need repair..bushes or something ? Or should i look for a short somewhere ? New battery, all looks good, makes proper contact everywhere.
Sounds like it's time for a new alternator. When the red "battery" light comes on it usually means that your alternator has stopped working or is over charging the battery. In either case 99% of the time it's the alternator that has failed. HTH. -Jim
Hello Jim, thank you for your feedback. I phoned a few places this morning, i have to buy a sealed unit..and they are pricy. It might also be the Regulator that has blown..so i'll take it in and get it tested. Hopefully it is the regulator.
You're welcome. Glad to help. - Jim
