Referred To Dealer To Check Fault Codes(Said Alternator Was At Fault). Replaced With New Alternator ;But Light Still Remained On Even Though Charging Is Normal
Hi, I can't tell you exactly what is wrong because there is too much involved at this point, what with 2 shops working with it, but I can give you some advise on what else to check. On the alternators and the wiring that supports them a small volt charge is taken off one of the slip rings, where the brushes ride, for the purpose of turning out the light. As I remember, this is a yellow wire that runs back to the dash.
To the alternator, it would be one of the wires that plug into the side of the alternator case.
