Thanks for your reply... I will check the ALT brushes even though the ALT is brand new.
The voltage regulator is apart of the ALT and the one on the instrument panel check out fine. The guages all operate fine also.
The ALT light (new bulb installed), never comes on while the car is being drove or when the car finally dies. However, it iluminates before the car starts @ the key turn.
Next, I will trace the wiring from the battery and battery block to the starter to ensure that no intermittent issues are looming.
Know of any fusible links!?!
Just looking for any new pointers...
Thanks again, Ray
