Alternator problems?

2591 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?

sounds like my problem. charge/no charge. turns out it was the sense wire going into alternator. it was broke at plug internally. got a new plug and spliced in wires and works fine now. the wire needs to be secured or tied to something so it does not flex or move due to the air blast. its right next to the cooling fan so it gets lots of buffeting.
