Hi all im just wondering if anyone knows the problem im having with my fiat cinq sporting.Last week i put a brand new alternator on my car and it was working fine,but i jumped in it last night to pop down shop and i noticed my dashboard lights where a bit dim and wondered why.So then i noticed when i put my foot down and the revs passed 4000 revs they went better and the car felt quicker to,but when i slowed down they went dim again.So then this morning i went down mothers came back out and batt was flat so i bumped started it and it turned over,when i arrived back home knocked engine off and then turned it back on and it worked.Does anyone know the problem as i want to sell the car and do you think i have a dodgy alternator?:)

I dont think its the alternator as it does provide the power to the car when running, its probably your battery on the way out.

I have a similar problem on mine so will be watching the thread with interest.

Check the charging circuit is complete. Do you have the 12V to the alternator. You haven't put an LED bulb in the dash.

Just thoughts

Cheers
