    Question fault code for alternator problems

    Does anyone know if a failing alternator would log any fault codes? Car behaving strangely today symptoms are:

    hgh idle rpm - 1100
    lights blink when cranking starter
    fan only blows at full power when car under load, if coasting it stops

    any ideas? it's a 150CDTI estate 2007

    cheers

    sounds like alternator or battery mate. winter puts a tremendous strain on both. pop into your local kwik fit or nationwide autocentre and they will strap an expensive looking gadget across your battery terminals and tell you for sure.

    Popped to supermarket this evening and the blasted thing wouldn't start when I came out. Breakdown man turned up in 5 mins flat and got her going again, he confirmed it was the alternator on its last legs. I drove the mile home and the power steering, lights etc died just as I pulled onto the drive!

    Big thumbs up for Greenmeadow Breakdown

    Have yo ring round tomorrow for quotes but I hear 350 - 550 fitted is the ballpark figure
