Ok, well, I have a situation here, and I think it's the alt. Driving along, and all of the sudden the ABS light shows up, cannot turn trac. cont. off/on, the ATC resets and goes off, and the volt guage drops to below the 8 mark on the left of the guage, like before you start the car. It has done this once before during the extreme heat that St. Louis is getting, but it was fine after I went back out a few hours later. Now it's doing it again. Is this a stuck brush in the alt, or the reg. getting too hot and shutting the charge off? Really don't want to junk the alt. if I can fix it. I'm sure they're not cheap. batt. is less than a yr. old. Any ideas?
