Comments about Driveworks Alternator - Remanufactured - 100 Amps:

The voltmeter on our vehicle was showing a negative charge on the dash gauge(with lights on, air conditioning on, fan on high, radio on, so I didn't think we could leave this go too much longer without the battery eventually getting to the point that our vehicle wouldn't even start!
So I started looking on the internet for a replacement for the alternator.
But first I had a clerk at Advance Auto Parts do a charging test with the system under heavy Load.
The test showed a lower than normal battery reading and a lower than normal output from the alternator.
So the first thing I replaced was the serpentine belt, knowing that it was at least 3-4 years old, I read that a slipping belt may cause similar conditions that we had with our vehicle.
I also charged the battery overnight with my charger to make sure it was up to where it should be or somewhere close to normal.
But after all my efforts the gauge still showed a significant discharge under extreme conditions.
My last part that I know that I could replace was the alternator, so I shopped around for my choice and saw a good selection at Advance Auto Parts!!
I dealt with these folks before and have nothing but praise for the staff at Advance Auto Parts!
Very helpful, knowledgeable staff, a great big THANKS for the availability of parts and service!!!
