Question about 2004 Jaguar X-Type
Battery terminal gets extremely hot and battery indicator light comes on... new alternator and battery was put in, but still happening
Sounds like for one reason or another that alternator is putting out too much voltage to battery. Did mechanic check to see if new alternator was rated same or close to old one, as in amperage rating? Pulley on new alternator same size? You'll need to get it to another mechanic who knows what he's doing, obviously that guy wasn't too concerned with curing your problem. That's why I was hoping you had a voltage reading when running.
