Yes yes yes. Replace it.
make sure the battery charged up, put a volt meter on the battery with the van running and see what the output voltage is, 13.5-14.5. if the voltage reading is low the problem is the alternator or regulator(which is inside the alternator) you will need to replace the alternator I HAD THIS SAME PROBLEM.

if it stalls when you remove positive battery terminal then your alternator is bad Yes, it could be the alternator, but I have an 89 Celebrity and when I first got it we had the same problem and would die out every few minutes and need a boost.

If On my 88 Camry the charge and the brake lights on the dashboard to light up simultaneously while i drive can you suggest what the prblem may be. it stays for some time and goes off?
I have the same problem with my 89 Camry. The alternator is not charging (the charging circuit is broken). I tested the system with a 12 volt meter. Then I noticed that the alternator had dust on it from the internal bushing being worn so I tapped on it and the system worked again and the lights on the dash went out. I blew out the alternator with compressed air and it took care of…

How can I determine if the dashboard brake light indicator flickering in a 1996 Ford Contour is a brake problem or a problem with the indicator light?
First check that the alternator is working normally. Then, check that all four wheels have braking when lifted off of the ground and brake pedal depressed and transmission in neutral. Next, check that transmission fluid level is normal. After that check that the parking brake applies and releases normally. If all of the above are okay, the problem is likely a problem with the light and not the brakes.
The fan light brake light and the battery charge light comes on on your dashboard what is it or why?
Is it possibly a broken/missing alternator or serpentine belt? (nope just alternator light) It can also be a failing voltage regulator within the alternator, or a failing alternator itself. It is usually the carbon brushes in the alternator when both lights come on, it indicates a field problem with alternator Brushes are not to hard to change on a toyota, just remove the alternator from car, remove rear cover unscrew the brush holder and rectifier?(they…
My car stopped today the battery light when on does that mean i need a new battery it started then slowed down what's the problem help?
Well since it does not start, first suspect the starter. The battery is easy to eliminate as the cause. The alternator could also be the problem. If the battery is dead but it retains a charge from another source after a jump start, the alternator is the problem. Disconnect the battery after the cart has started. If the engine dies it is a bad alternator, same as a car, unless the golf cart is a…

What is wrong with the battery if it wont stay charged with a new alternator on a Chrysler 5Th avenue?
Your alternator is probably rebuilt and not really new. I have had this problem several times and I have bought a new battery and alternator. The alternator keeps your battery charged and powers your electrical system, so even when driving you can lose all power in the car from the alternator draining your battery. Take the battery and alternator to an auto store and they will test both for free. Ask them about the difference…

See related link. If it starts squeaking after replacement (or otherwise) you need to make it tighter (common problem with Echo). To do this, you need to first loosen the three bolts on the alternator (two on top, one on bottom) then you can pivot it forward by putting a pry bar between the alternator and the engine and pushing the top of the pry bar back toward the windshield.
