    Yeah, that's why I said "knowledgeable" LOL
    Good deal, that should fix up the blinkers. I really like my LED look, but I haven't done the dash yet. I will when I have a little more time tho.

    My hour and half drive home with dying alternator. I'm lucky we made it home. Had the laptop screen down so I was unaware it was having issues.

    I'm a fan of LED's too. Clean and crisp :sneaky:. NOOOOO leave the dash haha. To each is own.

    Do 1gs have low charging idiot warning light?

    I'd have to review the circuit. I doubt that would be it. Red light sounds like a hard failure. Not setting could be lots of things

    I will run thru what I can find. I am almost thinking the goofy VSS signal I get messes with it, but thats another thread. Thanks Paul.

    Yes, the battery indicator in the dash.

    Pretty sure it was diode dynamics, aka DDM. I was getting most of my leds through them when I wrote the led replacement article.

    Did you check the dimmer knob? I had an “ah-ha!” moment before and it turned out to be this.

    Had the alternator tested. It FAILED!! Only charging at 11.4 volts and you can hear the bearing from a mile away. They advertise that it’s checked before shipping. Never buying a thing from them again.

    Thanks I ordered one from advanced. $70 with lifetime warranty but it’s going to take a week

    90amp for 96 galant

    96 galant alternators do not fit

    If youre ordering new why not order for a 91 or 92 gvr4. Those fit.

    Well my 96 Galant bolted up and plugged right in or I wouldn't have suggested it. That was back when there were no optional models. As Pauley says, the GVR4 alternator is a direct swap if the Galant, for whatever reason, doesn't or won't work for you.

    Are you certain they fit with no modification?

    Ordered a 91 vr4 alt. Fingers crossed

    Am I crazy??? With the new alternator, my wipers wipe so much faster. Before this alternator, the speed of on and fast were pretty much the same and the motor seemed weak. But now there’s a noticeable difference.

    Monitor your voltage. If it’s Normal that just points out how bad your old unit sucked

    Thank, Pauley! It does drop to 12.7 at times. Is that normal? Also, where is the voltage regulator? Thanks

    Try to keep the new alternator dry and as much heat away from it as possible to keep her in tip top shape now!!!
    If the PS pump has the typical leak on the nut where the hose attaches, repair it. I believe it is just an o-ring. :thumb:

    I did replace the oring a few months back and it's not leaking anymore. I do check it every time the hood is open. Don't want to dirty up the new alt :sneaky:. Anymore leaks out of it and she's coming apart for a rebuild.

    Yes they did according to others and those from Up North. Galant's and GVR4's had them also.

    Or to keep it clean move it to the back, and don't worry about the power steering leaking all over it.
