I start the car this morning..
..there's this whining under the hood. I think to myself, either has to be a dying power steering pump or a dying alternator.. meh. So I leave for work.
About 2 kilometers into my trip, engine light comes on.. I put it in neutral, shut off the engine and signal over to the shoulder. Checking engine codes, find 12 (which is me having disconnected the battery last Thursday to change the fuel pump seal) and 47. I think hmm, 47 .. Must be alternator.
I start it up again, take off to work. About 2 more kilometers later, charge light comes on in the dash. haha.
Damn! I hate winter! Nothing ever breaks in the summer - only when it gets below 0°C everything breaks.
