The alternator works and does a good job at charging even an old crummy battery.
I used the alternator in my Ford Taurus SHO. I'm not sure if it's the alternator or not but at around 6000rpm the battery light will start to flash or even stay illuminated. Upon dropping below 6000 rpm the light will turn off and everything will be fine. My old alterntor did not cause this issue, at least before it blew. It's not a big deal though because I'm not always driving around at 600rpm engine speeds.

Original alternator was defective, but the replacement from Advanced Auto worked very well. The original had physical damage which wasn't noticed at installation time. Advanced Auto replacement was without question one of the most pleasant that I've experienced, I will use them again. The only dissatisfaction that I have is that I didn't notice the physical damage when installing the first alternator, my fault for not seeing that. This resulted in two replacement efforts, it's a good thing that the replacement is a relatively easy task.

This warranty cannot be transferred to anyone at any time. Parts installed on commercial use vehicles are warranted for 90 days from the date of purchase.

                    hi i am in the process of replacing this alternator. There seems to be a single wire connection missing on this part. On the original I have 3 connections but only 2 on this one? Can you help?

                      A:

                      Unfortunately, with out the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it nor provide you with a 100% answer. We would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis for proper installation or I would recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.
