So I've been getting weird random error messages on my '05 645. Battery was replaced about 7-8 months ago. From reading on this site, seemed liked it may be an alternator issue. Since I rarely drive the car, I purchased a Tender and plug it up as soon as I get home. Noticed that the tender took ALL night to go green (fully charged status). So I decided to do some preventive maintanence and have the alternator replace. Found a remanufactured alt on partsgeek.com. Had an indy replace it. Picked it up and got about 100 yards and damn near all my warning lights started coming on, my screen goes blank. I pulled over and turned the car off. Started it up and everything seems fine.......pulled off and everything is going haywire again. Turned around and BARELY made it back to the shop. They put a meter on it and it read normal voltage at idle but 17v+ when gassed..........:bawling:
