Alternator? - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
Battery light came on dim on 1993 CSE when turned key on. Started car no change. Swapped 1993 Aero Battery same symptoms. Checked voltage ~12V no increase when start/rev engine. Check Aero shows ~14V when running. Put new Bosch voltage regulator on CSE, ~14V when running, battery light went off. Three short trips ~ 10 mi, get in car to come home battery light on again. Drove/got home but lights got very dim, interior electrical shutting down, no ACC, Gauges to zero, but I made it home. Check again ~12V no change when start/rev. Rebuilt Bosch Alternator with only 43000 mi, put in at 132K in June 2011 now at 175K.
