2003 Mazda 6 alternator keeps going out

2003 Mazda 6 has had 5 new alternators since last summer. They've lasted from 5 months to 1 day. I had no problem with the OEM alternator for 6 years.

Could I ask-- who is replacing the Alternators and why?
Did you take each one to the Auto Part Store and have it tested. If they were bad they would warrantee them and give you another for free.
Please don't tell me a dealer or professional shop put 5 Alternators on your vehicle and you accepted that !!

Tell me someone is still in the Diagnostic Mode and working to solve what happened,when the OEM ALT failed.

Is it cranking over fast or slow if battery is fully charged it should start ok, but you might have to put a battery charger on overnight if the Alternator is suss.

2003 Pontiac Vibe - 4 Cyl. 150k miles. Ignition coils keep going bad - every 4-6k miles. Coil 1 has been replaced 4 times, Coil 3 once. Coil 4 twice in the past year (20k miles). All spark plugs


Install new spark plugs, 4 new coils & replace the oxygen sensors

O2 Sensors are only good for 100,000 miles, then slow
down or quite

No idea why the coils do not last 5 or 6 years

Cylinder #1 is always at the front on a 4 cyl

Go to Rock Auto --Buy Wells Coils,NGK Double
Platinum Plugs & NTK O2 Sensor

Those parts are expensive because you have a Totota
Motor I guess

This will need a hands on inspection by a qualified mechanic. i suggest the Kia dealership, but at a minimum it needs to go to a different shop than the one you've been taking it to as they seem to not know what they're doing.

Hi, unfortunately your voltage regulator is controlled by the PCM. If the 120 amp charge fuse is good and the alternator is good; then the PCM is probably bad, as your mechanic is suggesting.

I have had terrible problems. I have 109,000 miles on it and last month the transmission went, the alternator also went and when it did it sent an electric shock through my car that fried all of my lights, sensors, event the motor in the door. The shock fried my radio and now my air doesn't work.

Mazda kept it for 3 weeks telling me they did not have a loaner car for me and wanted me to pay $50 a day to rent a car. They were terribly slow.

I will never buy another Mazda.

Alternator keeps going out


Have your battery checked before you put any more alternators in the car. If your battery has a dead cell or just needs replaced it could be making your alternators cover too much slack and burning them up.

Alternator problem


1.You need to install a Fully charged battery, before you install a new alternator. Otherwise it will burn the alternator up.

2.I read what you typed about installing a new battery. Was the new battery fully charged, and was it installed before the new alternator?
No?
See number 1 above.
