Hmm. The diagnosis of the alternator not "starting" sound like that could be it. But my light on the lower left hand side of the dash comes on when I set it on "glow." At least I think it is the alternator light. It looks like a little battery. That it what was showing when I had a bad alternator -- that light came on while driving. It is lit when I take the key out of the ignition and let it "diesel down" for a shut off.
Any other reason that the alternator would not "start"?
Thanks for the help.
