95 6cyl LX Battery Light
#1303102 - 08/18/06 04:22 PM

I have replaced the alternator 3 times in 3 years. This time instead of the battery light staying on it only comes on when I accelerate & the RPMs go above 2500. Someone at Advance Auto told me it could be the tensinor this time which is cheaper to fix. Anybody experienced this. Both battery & alternator checked out OK when I had Autozone look at them with their guages.
