Replaced alternator bearings now can't hook battery up it's shorting it out


Asked by Nov 24, 2015 at 12:05 AM about the 1995 Chevrolet Astro

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


These alternators aren't designed to be repaired in the field like in the old days. I'm impressed with the fact you could even get them. The best course of action is to replace the alternator unit with a rebuilt one and turn the old one in for the core charge. HTH. -Jim
