Just had the alternator replaced.
My sense is that the new one isn't charging enough - backed up by an occasional
weak horn, a couple of sluggish starts, and a battery that reads about 12.8
volts instead of the 12.9 it was the last time I charged it.
Could also be some sort of parasitic load when the system's shut down... but it
seems to me like the ammeter used to read one notch below "14" and now it's more
like 3-4 notches below. (at least I'm *assuming*
that it's an ammeter...and
not just a voltmeter...)
Anybody know what a reasonable rate is?
