Code P1246

Hye guys,

I have had the P1246 code showing up in my Predator. It has not caused a CEL but ever since I have been getting this code I have noticed a new symptom. The code reads IIRC Alternator Load Input.

Now sometimes when I stop at a light or sit at idle the car sometimes will start to sputter. The idle will fluctuate a little. It does the same thing to when I turn the heat on. If I turn it off, the idle will go back to normal.

Now what I am trying to figure out is, does the P1246 code only mean that the Alternator is going out? I tried searching the code but not a lot came up. If the Alt. is going out, would that cause the syptoms I list?

Let me know guys.
