We're stuck in Prescott, AZ: Billet silver RL w/disabled vet plates, out of medicine trying to find mechanic in Prescott AZ today/Sunday to replace alternator so we can get back home to Phoenix. Any ideas *very* much appreciated!


2008 RTX / 205,000 battery light came on yesterday, pulled over & added water to empty Cel nearest negative battery cable.

Light did not go away, went to AutoZone who said bad alternator.

Went across street to O'Reillys (moving very slow now/dash lights flickering as well for 2nd opinion). They said battery = bad (Cel short), maybe replacing battery might fix alternator problem.

Replaced battery, but alternator kept testing no juice to battery.

Awaiting tow late at night, alternator started *smoking* while vehicle was off/key out.

Pulled power cable off battery, discovered alternator = bad too.

O'Reillys actually had an alternator, so purchased it/tossed in truck for safe keeping.

*Sincerely* appreciate any ideas you might have up here. :)

Good Luck......

Afterthought: Ask the guys at the parts store where you got your alternator if there is someone you can hire to install your alternator. I bet they can call somebody over to get it done for you right there where you sit. 'Pretty simple job really.
