Hi,

My kancil is acting up again. Change the battery but after a few days the
battery is kaput again. Must be the alternator ..but there is no indicator
on the dash to indictae that the alternator is not charging ...Can someone
advise how much is the alternator? Any recon available?

Thanks to all.

recon always available for kancil..don't worry...

u might wanna send ur alternator to wiremen be4 that??maybe they can do
sumthing..must be the IC(regulator) or the rectifier...signal on the dash
just shows whether ur battery is charged or not....however it does not
indicates it's enough or insufficient charge...

my 2 cents..

recond unit have many grades...i think it can rise up to 200 for an
alternator..i can't give u any comment on that coz i usually go for a
japan used one at halfcut shop..not that i'm a cheapskate but i'm
frustrated with the recond unit...i got bad name becoz of
them...reconders do their job like it was by legs not by hands....maybe
they improve now...

just wait for others to give their oppinion

Hi,

Turn out that the alternator belt was loose. Bought a new one for RM7 and
replaced it with a friend. Before that went to a chop shop. A used
alternator is abt 75 ringgit. Recond is 85 ringgit. Now I have a spare
battery ...

Thanks to all.
