Corsa - Rev Counter and alternator Query

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  Corsa - Rev Counter and alternator Query

Hi all,

This is my first post so please be gentle.

I have an L reg Vauxhall Corsa Ls 1.5TD. The alternator went on the car a month or so back. I had this fixed but then the rev counter didnt work. The guy came back out and the rev counter was sorted.

I was driving the other day and the rev counter died (i was in third for a bit too long which could have caused something).

I thought nothing of it as i didnt think this would affect anything, however, the battery isn't being charged so looks like the alterntor isn't doing its job again - car wouldnt start because the battery was low and the lights are a lot dimmer (plus slow wind screen wipers). Has it come loose or unnatached or is it completely gone again?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

james

Am taking it to the garage next week so am hoping the costs are as low as possible at the moment. Spoke to the guy though and it sounds like they must not have done it properly (or crappy replacement) so should be a free fix if this is the case!

Aren't there forums and chat rooms for "queries"? This might not be the appropriate place.
