This past December I had the alternator completely ground out, car died within 5 miles. I'm pretty sure others have had this problem. I replaced it but now I got the battery idiot light coming up and a message about battery saver mode. I'm pretty sure the new alternator has already went out. I was looking for any screen that showed the amps or voltage but for the life of me I cannot find it. I've searched for a secret screen like the old chargers/magnums had but I can't find where there is one. I'm trying to see if it's truly trying to charge or something else is causing the light. I took out my meter and stuck it on the battery while the car was running and was only getting 13 volts, no change. So I'm pretty sure I've got to get an alternator but it sure would be nice if there was a gauge on the screen somewhere to show this.
