i have the same problem with my 02 sentra i put 3 alternatos in it in 3 months and its bad again.... dont buy alternators from auto zone only napa dont buy rebuilt alternators i have been told to check for loose ground wires and to check my voltang in batterie while car is running that will tell u if the alternator is charging batteri if its hight u have an overcharging problem if low its just a blown alternator


A friend had the same problem with his '98 Cougar. There was supposed to be a spacer behind the pulley. The rebuilds he was getting didn't have it. Perhaps that's your issue as well. Another thing is if you have a large plug on the alternator replace it. They were notorious for burning out. HTH. -Jim
