The units I offer are more of a courtesy than a moneymaker but they are backed by a reasonable warranty and I have had no major problems.
Since a few months the generator of my Bonneville '95 refuses to load properly when I stop the car
-temp 90 F
-gear in D
-(running day)lights on
No problems when temp is lower. No problems when I keep driving.
Replacing voltage regulator didn't solve anything at all. I did read the posting of speedyguy: could the rear bearing be the cause of this problem? If true, is there a solution?
