I hope this is the right section...

My alternator started giving me hassles on Saturday. On my way back from the rugby on the freeway my battery light went on. Now I replaced my battery 2 months ago so it is still 100% fine.

Took out the alternator yesterday and took it to a auto election today. Apparently it is not working... :thumbsdow

They now going to open it and see what the damage is and if it can be repaired. Hopefully it is only the brushes and/or the voltage regulator.

We have a dyno day this coming weekend and I need to be ready!!! :dr:

UPDATE...

Fitted the alt and working perfectly BUT... This morning the battery light goes on again but at low RPM. And it only goes on for a second then goes off. Basically at 500rpm idle. When I out head lights on it idles at 750rpm then the battery light does not go on?

Is the alternator "settling in" or does the battery need a little charge as it wasn't connected for a week?
