about 2 yr old "new" AC Delco Alt died
headed to a Sunday cruise....battery light on. did DVM test....11.6 VDC checking battery terminals with engine running. Was all good when I pulled the car in garage last night..just start up this am I see battery light on
So it would appear the Alt is not outputting enough VDC. Alt swap is no big deal but for the $149-$179 depending on what reman from what chain store I am going to take a step back.
The "new" AC Delco I got was from Rockauto so no warranty anymore but the $ was good and for the $115 for a "new" one I may go that route again. These "new" AC Delcos are made in Mexico now.
Just disappointing the "new" one I bought had a short life
All connections are good, Gary's cables, belt, tensioner, solid battery,etc are good. Shiat happens
IDK if voltage regulator or a diode craped on the bridge. All the old school rebuild shops have long gone away anywhere near me...even far from me.
I will go see if my original is still in attic. It had a slight bearing squeak so I can swap parts over to make one good one likely
