Charging System Issues
2001 T & C 3.3L
On way home, Battery light comes on. I try to baby it the rest of the way but slowly systems start shutting off (abs, then brake lights, then lights).
All of the dash gauges began to flicker, and lastly the windshield wipers turned on (and squirted) followed promptly by the car shutting itself off.
I was able to charge the battery off of another car and drive for 1/2 mile or so. I did this for the 5 miles to get to my house.
After home, i checked voltage across battery and alternator -- Alternator was putting out ~7-10 V.
I assumed that i just had an alternator issue (car has 106k miles on it).
I changed the alternator, jumped the car and let it run for a bit.
My inagural drive netted a similar result to above-- Now i'm stuck-- not sure what to do.
I didn't change the battery, but i'm not sure that would do anything at this point... the one that was in there is about a year old (duralast yellow top).
