You paid someone to fix it ? :-(
Oh well, It could've been a learning experience.
Better luck next time with your mods/maintenance.

take it to an autozone or pep boys or something like that, they should be able to run free battery/alternator tests

i have an extra working alternator sitting right here if you cant find one dirt cheap


There were issues with the alternator which was expressed to me when I bought the car which is now fixed tho it cost me an arm!! But yes my ABS light is on....does that just need a fuse change? Thanks!



i thought my alternator was gone and it wasnt, it was the ABS fuse which is down by your clutch foot and its labeled ECU-IG (or ECU-IB) i cant remember which, but its in the center right spot.. its a 15A fuse... replace it and your abs light should go away and your alternator problems might be alright

Well when I bought the car, the lady said it definately needed an alternator so I had driven straight from her house to the mechanic she said had dealt with it before. She had come down some on the price since it needed that. Thats why I went ahead and paid for it. :shrug:

Good luck with your AllTrac. It's a rare and beautiful beast and you have merely started your love affair with her on this years Valentines day.

Ah, the electrical is a fun little hassle. You should make a laundry list of everything that is wrong with the car and peruse the BGB. Whether you like it or not, you're going to get intimate with that car.

Hmmm...... I ponder the instance of a girl calling the car a him... LOL :shrug:
