Alternator 2.7L problem
I have a 2000 Intrepid, 2.7L. A buddy of mine replaced the alternator last weekend (it had a bad diode and was wheezing badly). Everything was working like a charm, but as I turned a corner this morning (after a 30 mile commute...thus the car was 'warm'), the car died, however I was able to start it right back up.
Since he's out of town, I need to figure out what is going on. I don't think he disconnected the battery terminals when he replaced it. Does the computer need to be 'reset'? I wasn't getting any codes before I replaced it, but now I get a P1684--disconnected in the last 50 starts. The belts aren't making noise, so I don't think they're loose. Everything seems to be charging fine also.
Any suggestions? Many thanks in advance.
