I've run into another problem... In the last 2 or so months and 15K miles, I've gone through 4 Alternators, the factory one, a reman (only for a week), another factory one, and now its in the shop for the same problem. Yesterday the same headlight blew (front right) as when we left on our road trip. I had the wiring from the negative lead replaced in San Diego due to corrosion (really bad) and my radio wires from the stock radio were shorting on my headunit. Could all of this fried my alternators? Because I didn't have any problems until after I put that radio in. I didn't change the alternator when I fixed the negative lead and the wiring behind the radio so I'm wondering if it's all related.
