car is started it behaves fine for a while before the speedo
quits and the
warning lights come on.

The alternator angle intrigues me. We had a 120
Km run with the car
today which ended about 2 hrs ago. The probelem is still
although, oddly today, the speedometer quit independently of the
lights coming on. The current battery voltage sits at 13.34
which is high but
not the 15v that Dan mentions.
This could be the problem since the car works
fine when first started
and the problem shows up between 5 mins and 20 mins
after start up
and only when the car is in motion.
