Code 52. I just installed the new alternator and I am not getting a sporadic code 52. No engine dying or electrical issues to report. What would throw this code? Distributor?
Re: Code 52. 52 just means the battery was disconnected at some point. No big deal, just clear it. Re: Code 52. Now a random 12 code was thrown. Not sure if that was from my running it on e temporarily as I had to go to work and get gas running in fumes. Or if the alternator frying messed of the distributor. Re: Code 52. E12 is no distributor signal -- sounds like ignition module, maybe bad ground, dunno http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...x-engines.html Re: Code 52. Yea I saw that code deal. I am gonna undo all the grounds tomorrow and see how she runs. I think it may be just that since I havent had any failures or running signals of issues during driving like stumbles etc. Only issue will be finding all the damn grounds. Re: Code 52. Lol, you undo the grounds and she wont even start.

Clean grounds are always good regardless though. Re: Code 52. Hasn't returned but ill hope cleaning the lines up helps. Just replaced the ALT.
