I was towed off the freeway with a drained battery (car completely died), charging light had been on but I had not noticed. I bought a Bosch recon alternator and my local machanic fitted it a couple of days ago. Last night I left work and and noticed 5 minutes later that the charging light was on again. It died again within 30 minutes.
Could it be that the new alternator failed so quicklly or is there maybe another problem, could a faulty battery (2 year old Craftsman Gold) be the problem, I have noticed some reddish sticky looking liquid around the + terminal.
Any help would be greatly appreciated !
have the same problem?
