:crying2::crying2:OK people my '95 Eldorado turned over 285,000 miles yesterday and has been perfect up to this point. I need somehelp now though. Today it is giving me a no charge battery message, service engine soon, at first everytime I sped up
the volts went up to 16.8.....now it says 11.0 and does not rise. I took it to the parts store, they checked both battery and alt. Battery good. Alternator not giving any reading at all. I had brakes replaced yesterday, is it possible for
it to somehow be a short? Can't get good look due to location of alt. Ugghhhh! Please help! TY

285K! Wow! Sounds like it is time for an alternator. If it is original, it doesn't owe you a dime. I'd stick with A/C Delco.

local shop rebuilt mine for $95

i think rebuilding your own is the best option.....other than brand new ac delco($300)?....so best bang for buck is yours rebuilt

I just dont trust parts store crap anymore.....esp how hard it is to change out the alt....well not hard but time consuming.
