99 Kia Elan 1.8L
What leads you to believe that you have a bad alternator?I just took the battery to get checked. It's good. I went to take out the alternator, but it's really giving me problems. I got the belt off and both the bolts loose. Top bolt is out and alternator is loose from the top. But the bottom bolt won't come all the way out because it's blocked by body. Is there a secret to getting this thing out?
If the alternator was not charging, the car would still run until the battery got too low, ....... around 9 or 10 volt.
2011 sportage dies while driving, no start, no crank - a failed alternator will not prevent it from cranking IF the battery still has a charge.
