...newer ones have reverted from a proper automotive alternator to a traditional crappy total loss alternator - no brushes, no field windings - just a big rotating magnet...
...[a] voltmeter to each yellow wire two at a time and got 0 volts ...
[b] if you connect one wire on the meter to each yellow wire one at a time and the other side to ground and check for continuity there should be none, if there is the alternator is bad, is this true...
[c] is there a way to test if my rectifier has gone south or not? I asked a dealer and they told me there is no way to test it...
[d] does anyone know where I might be able to get a rectifier and alternator at a reasonable price besides the dealer...
[e] dealer told me most likely need new battery which is $100-150 because batteries only last 2-3 years anyway...
[f] assuming that it is the rectifier that cost $300-350. Then they charge a diagnostic fee of $95 which they will credit toward the repair so minimum they will charge me for 1-2 hours labor which is $95/hour. They also said if it is the alternator that is bad, that is over $400 (I hear a cash register in the background). I really appreciate the help so far from the community and I am hoping the information keeps coming.
