Ok driving home form work today in my 93 legend LS 355,000KM

approx 3 KM to home

get 300 meters from work and battery light comes on

get home take battery out it checks fine check wires at idel reading 11.92-11.98 volts volts drop with rpm increase barrtey is 12.65 with car off

alternator look oil covered it IS so i spray a citrus degreaser on it and wash it down still no chargeing

so i decide to remove alternator I get it 95% out but it just wont fit so I say screw it ill pay someone else to do it

I reinstall everything 2.5 hours later I start car NO battery light on anymore

I did NOT unhook any wires or clean any connections I was pulling on the alt wires trying to get it out

very strange it is the orig alt

any ideas??

well Im not so sure as there are reall no wires to pull that would tigetn youd think they would come undone....

I did remove and sand the ground under the battery

any idea how far the car will drive with everything off (except daytime running lights) once the battery light comes on? may batt is new last fall I ask as i drive 120km rnd trip once every week and if light comes on will i make it home.....
