hi everyone.
i had a new alternator put in 18mths ago but it fried some wires in the loom.
so, the same garage put in my new one but i notice that the lights fade noticibily???? when i clutch between gear changes. i have never noticed this on any other car so could this be a case of a poor installation job and should i get a wiring specialist to check it over.could water from floods cause the short.cheers

Have something to contribute?

get wiring checked to alternator asap. when u change gear the engine drops to idle and the glowing light means the alternator or in this case associated wiring is struggling to supply what u have turned on in the car running! had a similar prob on mkii rs2000 ooh 15 years ago. basically unless there is a problem with the new alternator the damaged wiring is not man enough!
