Recommended Posts

Hi everyone hope someone can give me advice please. 

I own a 2010 diesel mondeo I had the alternator replaced 2 weeks ago, then yesterday the dashboard lit up and said over charging then all the electric went off and a burning smell appeared, but all the electrics work now apart from the alternator im taking it back to the garage but wanted some advice so I don't get ripped off

Do you have breakdown cover.

If so i would get it taken to the garage that supplied and fitted it.

If it has burnt out and over charged it may have taken the battery/ecu/loom under bonnet.
