car not charging
My 2002 grand am battery light
came on three days before my car
completely died.. after work I was
driving and notice the ABS light
came on as well as the traction and
airbag lights came on a stopped
blowing cold. This is the first time
this happened checked all my fuses
and they was good.. 6 months ago I
had a alternator and 2 months ago a
new battery.  Car crank when I jump
it and then dies within a minute. Im
so cofused.. Do these cars have a
alternator fuse?

by any chance the alt you put in was it a tough one from advance. if so WARRENTY those units fail , all the other thing you mention are do to low voltage in the system. just because the parts are new dont mean they are good

Thanks a lot that was really helpful that what I thought at was a faulty alternator..
