Alternator problems?

2592 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?

You can have a bad connection or broken wire in the harness. I would look close to the alternator and see if the wires seem OK at the plugs. The Caddy alternator is a pain to change (compared to one on top of the engine) and the wires can get twisted and yanked more than they should be.
