In the last 2 years I have replaced the alternator 5 times. Each time I returned the alternator it did check bad.I was told by a the store manger, who is a mechanic, that the computer was causing the alternator to burn up. I got a computer but as I said now the car won't start. Dealer says they can flash the computer or my keys. With the original computer the car starts and runs fine. Before I spend much more on this problem, does it make sense that the computer is causing this problem? I would appreciate another opinion. I have looked at the wiring diagram for the vehicle and cannot see where the computer ties in to the charging circuit.
have the same problem?
