Alternator or battery problem
I'm looking at a car on
that was originally listed at the beginning of December and won, however, the winning bidder never collected.
Anyhow, the new listing now advises that since the first listing, the alternator dash tell tale illuminates and stays illuminated but the car still starts and runs fine.
My question is, could
this be a battery running down problem (as the cars been sat unused for a while now) or would
it be the alternator?
I am assuming the alternator runs of the aux belt and would cost a bit to replace?
Advice greatly appreciated as I may be able to get myself a bargain here
