So my wife was going on a trip and half way there the battery light lights up. She gets there after four days heads back stops at auto store they test battery say its 12.1 volts okay to drive! She starts van light is out she drives five minutes light comes on she almost makes it back it stalls at stoplight battery to low to start/run. Gets a jump light is out she drives a mile to house lets it idle for twenty minutes shuts it off. I get there start it light is out I take it for drive stop a few places light never comes back on. She gets in it next day starts it and light is on. She drives a few errands with it on gets back home shuts it off. Restarts it light is off. Shuts it off restarts it light is on. I bought van eight months ago have had no problems. Alternator does not look like its been replaced in a while looks like 135 amp model. I know the regulator is in the PTCM. I noticed when I was checking it out the battery light does not come on with 'key on' like all the other warning lights. Darn warning lights are hard to see tucked under the small flap on top of dash. Did not think to do a code read? Probably will not get back to it until weekend sometime.
have the same problem?
