Re: BAD ALTERNATOR?? (kinda long)
My alternator went the other week and it was similar. My battery light came on on Friday but all seemed ok. Drove all weekend and on Sunday had to get a jump after pumping diesel, then drove a few miles and lights started to dim, then no gauges on the dash, still ran for a few miles and I got to a parking lot.
Mine went when it was about 10 degrees and snowing. I wasn't looking forward to it either but it really doesn't take long to replace.
