Hi
Get a build sheet it will tell you on there or send me a PM with the last 8 of your VIN and I will tell you.

Merlin

thank youI remember when I first got this vehicle it was one of the first things I looked at improving. However, once I found out what I already had, I didn't really feel the need for improvement there.

By the way, Merlin, I haven't been able to get the information about my vehicle(error codes...etc) because my service rep wasn't there on Saturday and neither was the technician. Maybe I can find more out tomorrow morning.

Is it possible to find what the total draw on the alt is with all accessories running/on? Example: I have heated leather, fog lights, headlights, tail lights, blower motor, etc...?

Hi
Alternator output is controlled by the PCM a dealer with star scan can tell you what % the alternator is running at.

Merlin

With the CRD you get a 180 Amp alternator I believe.
