1999 Lexus ES 300 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 70,000 miles
I have had to replace my alternator 3 times in the last 6 months and it is dead again. The dealership diagnosis it and NPF. I took it to PepBoys and they say I have a bad alternator. Not charging, battery load teat is fine. They replace the alternator and it charges. With in a week or two, (the car gets limited use) the battery is dead. I jump the battery and take it in for service and the alternator is dead/not charging. PepBoys thought they might have had a bad batch of reman alternator, but 4 times?
What is killing my alternators? Bad relay, fusable link, short? Thanks. Mark
