Went out, started the Buick. no problem. Go to the wrecking yard to get parts for the VW'* no problem. Stop off to fuel up and go to start it. nothin! Had the wrecking yard owner come out (Helps to know the owner personally) and he jumped the car no problem. He also saw on the box how much the alternator was putting out. He said it put out 11.3 volts and should be putting out 14. I called my friend Geoff to tell him and he said he would get a hold of his grandfather (the guy I bought the car from).
Got the car home, and Geoff called me back. The alternator is only a month old and grandpa still has the receipt for it. He will call the garage that put the alternator in and get it replaced. I thought that was really nice of him to help me out like that.
So.. thats the story for now.
