So 3 days ago, I was driving around and my brake light and battery light both came on at one time. A quick google search on the phone tells me that the alternator is starting to fail. Ok, but the car is still starting up no problems so I figured I had a little time. NOPE! Drove to work the next day, while on the highway, when I would use the turn signals, the speedo needle and tach needle would both drop to 0 every time the light blinked. By the time I got to work, maybe a 15 minute drive, the ABS light had come on and the Trans Oil Temp light was coming on... not enough power to run the fans I guess. I had AAA tow it home after work, got a new alternator from Advance Auto Parts (by online and pick up in store to save 20%) and switched it out. Took maybe 15 minutes. The windings in the old alternator were pretty roasted, smelled like burnt electrics and was pretty black inside. New one went in and after a quick charge on the battery it fired right up, no battery light or brake light on anymore and she's good to go! Side note, the alternator was like 102 bucks after discount and comes with a lifetime warranty.
