You may remember late last week I was having a problem with my car not
starting. I had replaced my battery, then found a bare wire (no insulation)
on the wires going to the alternator. I thought I had the problem fixed.
The next day, I jumped into the B, and no start. So I surmised I needed a
starter. Went down th the auto parts store (they got a rebult starter for me
same day) and got that put in. It was still not starting unless hooked up to
my battery charger/jump box.
I finally determined that it had to be a severe current draw on the battery,
and checked all the wires I could think of...still no solution. Today, I bit
the bullet and bought a rebuilt alternator....and shazam!!!! the problem is
BTW, the old alternator never gave me a warning sign, just went bad, and the
guy at the parts store I deal with here in town said that he keeps them on
the shelf because they tend to go bad every 3 years or so. I happened to
put in the "old" one 3 years ago.
At least the new one has a lifetime guarantee...I won't have to pay for any
