Possible Alternator Issues


Did around 100 miles in my 93 LT1 today.
Hot day and alot of stop/start traffic- No over heating issues- fans working ok.
Parked up for a few hours then restarted and noticed battery warning light on ( battery only 4 months old), gauge showed around 11 volts but did rise to 12 over 2000 rpm.
If 3000 rpm then light went out and gauge showed 14 volts.
After 10 or so miles the readings went back to normal but I assume I have a problem waiting for the future.
Any thoughts where to start looking first. Replacement alternators dont seem that expensive

Re: Possible Alternator Issues


They recommended me to keep a spare alternator handy when owning a C4. A bit of a weak point with the C4 somehow.

See what the volt meter says on the dash or measure it with a multi meter on the alternator.

Started it this morning and all seems fine. But I know things rarely repair themselves so will get another and a new serpentine belt.
