yea i got them checked today, they said there was a dyode bad in the alternator. ive had this car for going on five years, and this will be my fourth alternator iv had to put in.

the battery they said was charging ok but not to its fullest. and my alternator was putting out two or three volts less than it should be. (electrical things arent my specialty so i cant remember the exact things i was told)

im going to go to a couple other places tomorrow to get it checked again just to get a second and third opinion. the battery is only a year old, and the alternator i believe is a year maybe two years old.
