Question about 2000 GMC Safari
Alternator keeps getting blown. We were told to replace the voltage regulator. I am unable to find out where it is located so we can get it replaced.

Im not sure they are right about that. Most alternators on Gm products have the regulator built in to the alternator. So if you replaced the alternator that shouldnt be the problem. That leaves the usual suspect causes of ghostly battery drain: dome lights, rear cargo lights, maybe an under hood work light. Have you had the battery checked as well? maybe its just having trouble keeping a charge. You dont say how old the battery is. Anyway, not sure about the regulator thing. I ve own a couple of suburbans and their alternators had the internal regulators.
