Yesterday while driving home, on the highway, I started getting this
warning in "red" color
"Alternate/Battery - visit workshop"
I called my dealer and he said that they car may die on the road so
instead of driving, tow it to us. As the dealer I trust is 30KM away,
I decided to continue to home.
This morning I started the car and there was no warning (No
Malfunction). I took the car to a nearest mechanic, he hooked it to
computer and said there are no errors. However, although the battery
is ok, may be you should replace it. If the error comes back again
(with in two weeks), he will put my old battery back and replace the
alternator ($1000 including labour). I have given him a go ahead to
replace the battery.
Any suggestions how should I proceed if I get this warning again. If
its faulty alternator, should I go to dealership?
My warranty expired 5 weeks ago :(
