alternator quit after getting wet
I recently flushed my cooling system on my 95 2.4L Tacoma 2wd because it was a nasty rust color when I bought it. I had to keep flushing for about an hour to totally clean it out. Unfortunately some water splashed onto the alternator while the truck was running. The next thing you know, the battery indicator light is on. I replaced the battery because I thought it was weak anyway, but the light remains on. I will test the alternator tomorrow, but I can almost guarantee that it will test bad. My question is, does this sound like a bad diode or brushes crapped out when it got wet? If so, how hard is it to rebuild? I prefer not to spend $130 on a new alternator.
Thanks for your input guys!
