Detail: We took the alternator to Autozone and had them test it on their machine they said it was good. But the recovery guys told us it was bad when they did their roadside test.has anyone else had this problem?
Solution: Buy a cheap volt tester there not expensive that would help you alot with the car running it should show 13to 14 volts running less then 13 it's not charging good luck I need more info , Roadside assistance made a snap decision that the alternator had failed - without testing. However, if the alternator has been replaced and is not a genuine OEM part, you may be running with a Chinese imitation that is prone to overheating. Also, the breakdown on the road may have been due to some as-yet-undiscovered problem. , Hi, A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
