Hi All,

I have 04 d4d t3x 116bhp. This morning when i started the car i heard troubling squeking noise - like some sort of belt slipping- but she has done that few times and then it always went away. so I drove off to work (80 miles) and the noise was comming and going for about half of the journey . When i nearly arrived (i was about 2 miles off my workplace) my dashboard lit up like christmas tree. Oil, coolant and battery indicators came on at the same time and then after a while also the ABS indicator lit up - although it was coming and going. When i arrived , I switched off the car and tried to switch it back on but it wasnt starting - like the battery was dead. So i have tried to disconnect the battery and reconnect to reset it but no avail. Also the battery indicator (on the battery itself) show as green.

Any ideas?

TIA

Well i was ment to report back , but completely forgot

I guess better late then never....

Anyways it came out that coils on the alternator have fried .

Mechanic told me it can be regenerated but the coils will be 150 euro , or he can get 2nd hand alternator and fit it for the same price. So I went with the latter option. All works fine now

BTW Toyota has placed alternator in the most awkward place possible
