Alternator problems?

2589 Views 11 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  Racer704
I have a 99 Eldorado that I replaced the alternator in the fall of 09 with a lifetime warranty re-manufactured one. I had another one go out 2 months ago and now it is acting up again. Do I have some other problem leading to them going out or just having crappy luck with parts?

I had an 'on and off' alternator light for a couple of months before I changed it out with a Duralast Gold. I've never had a problem since. Replacing the alternator isn't quick or easy but you can do it in a day. I recommend disconnecting a lifting (NOT removing) the radiator. It will make it 10 times easier to get to the bolts on the alternator.
