My alternator recently died in my Audi A6. After looking over the amount of time it would take to personally change it I took it to a shop to replace it. It worked great for two days and then I reved the car up to between 5000 and 6000 rpms in a low gear and the alternator light came on again. I took it to the shop and they said it might be defective. When ever I use the car now - I start the car and the alternator light is on showing that it's off and the battery is at 11.5 volts. Then I rev the car in park to about 6000 rpms and it turns the alternator on, the battery jumps back up to about 14.5 volts and it will stay on for the entire drive until I shut the car off and need to use it again. Any ideas on what this problem may be?
have the same problem?
