With the engine running check to see what the voltage is at the battery. If its more than 15 volts than the alternator is overcharging. Depending on the year of the vehicle there may be an external voltage regulator mounted to the firewall. It is fairly easy and inexpensive to replace.

2000 Tahoe sunroof won't fully close

Is there any debris in the track of the window especially towards the front. Thew clicking sound you are hearing may be worn gears in the drivve assembly of the window/power roof mechanism. Is there a limit switch for the sunroof? This may be bad also. Check the easy stuff first and get back with me.

The car overheats changed the thermostat still overheats put new waterpump &radiator still overheats & steams how do u reset computer?

Disconnect the positive battery terminal, then the negative. Let it set for a few minutes, most recommend 10 minutes. Once the time is up, reconnect the negative, then the positive battery terminals. This should clear the computer's memory, which would solve that issue...if it's the computer that needs to be reset...

I have a 1987 Toyota Tercel Liftback. Today while drivving I heard a clicking sound from under the hood for about 2 seconds then the charge light came on. When the engine reaches high RPMs as in...

with the engine OFF, look at the belt(s) going to the alternator. it is probably loose. if so, then it is likely that the idler/ tensioner pulley is bad (the clicking is the bearings inside the pulley rattling around inside the pulley wheel) the clue is clicking + charge light ON.

Took serpentine belt off a 2000 v6 passat and can't get the new belt on

You will find that there is a pulely that appears to or drivve nothing.That polley is the tensor pully. With a wrench push it down and loop the belt on. Oh ya, make sure you put the wrench on the inside of the blt to get it on. Let the wrench go the belt tightens. say TADA!

My 1994 Nissan Pickup was showing the battery light on and then I was drivving to work with the lights on and it started chugging and then died and would not start. Battery dead

The alternator is not charging,need to replace it,and charge the battery up with a slow charge,,,2 amp,over night a then some,slow charging gets the charge all the way up,and creates a deep charge that will stay,and prolong the battery life.
