Alternator

Post by Joe in SD »



I’ve been a member of this forum for a few years but haven’t posted much because I have to use my phone. That is a pain. But now I need some help. I’m on a trip and my alternator went out. If anyone on this forum has one to fit a 1999 SE 1500 and is near eastern Tennessee, I have the cash. Please respond. I’m desperate. Thank you and ride safe. Joe

Are you a GWRRA Member - by that I mean can you reference the Gold Book for local help?

See if you can find a local automotive starter/alternator rebuilder, the problem is likely as simple as worn brushes and you could likely get your alternator repaired even faster than you could get one shipped...

Worth looking into at least.....
