Question about RTO Alternator/Battery Tester

Open Question

Alternator fails Regularly

My neighbor knows I work on cars. I was a former 'FixYa' Author in 2012, when I was confined to a chair. His 2002 Monte Carlo SS, with High Performance package, (not the Dale Earnhardt Version) went well over 130,000 miles on the Factory Alternator. Replacement, rebuilt, & Re-manufactured units failed within Months. A "New" Alternator, also failed. Any likely reason..??

My neighbor just bought a Svan Signet high chair for her daughter. Is this a good chair or should I consider another brand?

I don't know much about this chair myself; however I found you a promotional video about that specific chair that should hopefully help you out in your decision making process. Enjoy!

At night battery light comes on then i loose lights then car cuts off

Sounds to me that it's 'new alternator' time for your vehicle.

The battery light is directly connected to the circuitry of the alternator and when it goes on indicates that the alternator is not providing enough voltage to supply the car's ignition system with electricity and the battery is discharging to fill the gap.

Replace the alternator, in this case.

I don't know whats wrong with my 02' Chevy Monte carlo. HELP!!! I was driving and all the lights on the dasd flashed and shut down. This caused my gas not to even work and making it difficult to turn off...

First look under your hood, see if the belt is still on, if it's not install a new one, if there is a belt, I would have my alternator checked out, any auto parts place will do this test for free, you will have to get it jump started to have it check out.If it still don't start could be fuel pump.

Charge warning light is on manual states it could be generator belt. How much would this cost to repair?

it's a cheap job and easy to do, however why don't you check it before getting it fixed? if you don't know how ask a friend or neighbor, there are other reasons that can cause no charging, alternator or the alternator connections including the earth lead that is connected to the alternator to an earth point,
