Funny, I ran into the same problem with my alternator failing this evening. Autozone said that the alternator was the problem, but I never trust them. So I have 3 questions.
first: I have a digital multimeter, how do I test the alternator without pulling it out of the car?
second: Fastlane lists 3 different alternators, whats the difference between them
third: If I fully charge the battery using an external charger overnight, could I use the car for short trips while waiting for the alternator to arrive?
