Plenty of posts here where weak battery or charging system cause all kinds of problems. Add bad grounds and cables to this.
I replace my batteries every 3 winters, no matter what. I replaced my Alt with NEW ones at about 125-135K. They were well worn and would just fail some inconvenient day. '03's DOHC
. I had 2 regulator fails on my '02 Lin Cont (same Alt as DOHC
Bulls) First one cost me $530 and a night in a motel. At 47K miles. Second I did at home but had to cancel a road trip.
Thus no rebuilds as they reuse the regulator.
