may be outside the alternator & in the wiring or other circuits
feeding wires to it !

You went thru 4 alternators

Astra alternator

Usually an alternator only needs bearings, brushes and possibly diodes and regulator. Most people rebuilding an alternator replace all of them. If you haven't rebuilt one or helped someone rebuild one it can be a little trickey. Some require that you solder the diode plate, others need very precise assembly. Often a rebuild kit costs more than a rebuilt alternator.

A ford needs a fully charged battery to work the alternator. You may burn out the replacement alternator by hooking it up to a dead battery. Get the battery charged and have it load tested. You may have a bad battery and it should be checked.

I got a new alternator for my truck in August and here it is May and the alternator is already had to be changed again.

Unfortunately rebuilt alternators these days may be of poor quality depending where they are purchased. Try finding one with at least a two year warrenty so if it goes bad they will replace it at no charge. You can always get a new alternator from a dealer but expect tp pay around double of what a rebuilt one costs.

I have a 1983 Jag XJ6. When operating, the

that is exactly what happened the alternator went bad causing overload in the battery,replacing it with a rebuilt will be fine,as long as the replacement puts out the same amps. it will most likely have a warranty of some kind so i would not replace it until car is back on the road . you don't want warranty expiring while car is parked.

My alternator went bad and so i had it replaced. then the battery light came on again. I replaced the battery brand new and the light is still flickering. Whats the problem now?

the battery light has nothing to do with the battery, it indicates that the charging system (which is the alternator) is not producing enough power to cancel the light in the dash, have Autozone or Kragen test the charging system again, the rebuilt alternator may be defective that u just installed or a connector to it has a bad connection.

It sounds like the alternator belt or the alternator is going bad. The squealing sound was probably the alternator belt. the alternator belt might need to get tightened or replaced or you may need a new alternator. The alternator keeps the battery charged. When the alternator goes bad the battery can not be recharged. You also should keep the power steering fluid up to par or the power steering will go bad on you.
