2002 BMW M3: Time for a New Alternator?
September 17, 2008
The alternator warning light (shaped like a battery and illuminated in red, in case you can't tell from this phone camera capture) started coming on last night in our 2002 BMW M3. At first, it only stayed on a for a few seconds, but now it stays on for a good minute before it extinguishes.
Most likely, we will be paying another visit to our indie shop, Summit Automotive. We'll let you know what happens.
