When you have the alternator tested, does the store give you any clue as to how it failed ? Overheated ? Short in the system ?

1997 mercury villager alternator keeps going bad. Any reason for this?

Check the lines of the alternator sometimes it gets corrosives
Check the tension on the drive belt, bearings, brushes...
Take the current alternator and test it with the new one and check the voltage in the store where you purchased.
check for shorts.
check that gets enough ground.
Also, just because its new does not mean its good special if it's refurbished that I don't know where you purchase it.

I remember a time that I replaced my refurbish steering power pump 6 times. pump was defected took me 6 times. it could be the Alternator regulator to be faulty.

how you can tell if your alternator is faulty. the lights on inside your car will blink go off, when you change station on your radio go off and on, dim, fuses blowing, head lights bulb blowing... check it out.
Test the alternator both the one you have now and a new one,
get second opinion to another place.

If is refurbished and keeps dying try to get the genuine for your car.

Good luck

Toyota G6 alarm keeps going off for no reason please help

just to let you know i had the same problem with my g6! it went off at 6 in the morning and woke the whole street up!
basicly if ur battery is running low or getting flat the alarm will automaticly go off because it thinks the car is being hot wired! it u press the alarm button one "lock" it will enable interior and exterior of the car, if u press it twice u enable only the exterior of the car, if u are getting this problem arm the exterior of the car by pressing "lock" twice and this will enble it and it shud not go off because its not using any interior sensors.
check ur alarm if its an old style battey "not a maintaince free one" then top up the cells with distilled water only run it about on a good journey and it shud give u a bit more time but my advice change the battery or check ur alternator but the alternator is the last cause.
