Did you have the new alternator tested before you installed it?

I have already purchased aftermarket parts from places like

Autozone and installed them and have found they are defective. I

installed a starter only to find out the starter was bad. I took it

back to Autozone, they gave me another one, I asked to have it

tested and IT was defective. I had to go to another store to get

one that worked. freak of nature? Maybe ...but it does and has

happened. Make sure the belt on the alternator isn't slipping.
