After leaving home yesterday I noticed the sub tank light "on" in the dash. Turned it off, turned it on - it stayed on regardless. Then noticed alternator light was on as well. Same on the way home. Surprise surprise flat battery this morning!
Called NRMA and alternator only charging at 10v.

My question - Is the sub tank light being on related to the alternator problem or is it something else?

Also what is approx cost of alternator replacement?

Thanks

Before I bought a new alternator I would be making sure that all the earths were in good condition. This is a common fault. Do some searching on here and you will find that many people have replaced the earth straps due to electrical faults.

Thanks GQshayne. I don't have time to check this out myself this week so will ask auto leccy to check that first. Appreciate the advice
