I already changed it.

I'm going to keep an eye on it for a while.

I put a posted a reply to the post about dead alternators that when I called the local dealership about an alternator rebuild kit they acted like they had never heard of such a thing.

I'll put a request in at partshop to see if one is available, if so I will probably rebuild the alternator, even though it does seem to be charging, the car has 129000 miles and I don't know if it has ever been serviced. Couldn't hurt.

Hey guys,

I took the car out for about a 15 minute ride with the lights on.

You guessed it, dead battery.

I put a parts request in for a voltage regulator and alternator.

As soon as I get everything replaced in this car... it will be like new!

Well, we hit some and we miss some. From the voltage readings you gave, it has been my experience that it is the battery. I guess we should have read the voltage with the lights on as a poor boys load test.

Good luck,
