    alternator problems 1996 deville .

    I have a couple of questions .

    Own a 1996 deville and I replaced the alternator last july . It lasted until the other day ..

    My question is about oil spillage and coolant spillage on the alternator . Does it affect the alternator . I thought oil was not conductive but I am worried about coolant . I had to replace the upper radiator house two weeks ago along with the belt . when I took the top house off a lot of antifreeze ended up spilling out of the hose at the radiator . could spilling coolant on the alternator cause the failure . I find it odd that it happened shoertly after replace the belt and hose .

    one other thing I wonder about is I have the abs message come up . senors on the wheels are good but until I can find time to replace the ebcm box I had a quick way of clearing to message for a while and getting first gear back . I would just turn the key to start position while drive which reset the dash and the message .. could this have casued problems too .

    I don't think spilling any liquid on (in) the alternator can be good.

    Before you start replacing any parts like an expensive EBTCM, pull the DTC's. It might just be a wheel speed sensor. A hub & bearing assembly would be a LOT cheaper than an EBTCM.

    Replaced both hubs last month as it gave me left front wheel speed sensor error code . Went ahead and changed both. When its very cold seems to work fine.
