    Thumbs down 3 week old alternator....dead

    Had a new alternator fitted about 3-4 weeks ago. On our way home from a camping trip yesterday (towing) and the dreaded battery light came on again. Pulled in and called the AA. They diagnosed the problem as the alternator. The engineer followed us home (45 miles) and we did not break down, although the battery light was illuminated for the duration of the journey!
    Anyone got any ideas on this, or could it just have been a dodgy alternator?
    It was a brand new genuine part fitted at reputable garage.
    Any ideas would be welcomed!

    I did speak to them yesterday and they said it will be sorted for free, just wondered if there was anything else that could have caused the problem, I had the bottom pulley done at the same time so I doubt that could be the problem, just have to wait and see I suppose!!
