    New owner should just check the cable off the back.
    In January it broke at the crimp. I just crushed it back on with pliers. Has been fine up till now I guess.

    I guess you could call a broken cable a fault.

    I drove the thing as my daily driver for 13 years in Sydney peak hour. I sold it cause I bought a new car.

    I bet you are a gumtree idiot.

    Thatís funny, I already posted that picture 6 months ago

    I did 90km a day in it since I bought it. Alternator light flashed at me a couple of times but always went out. Today when I take new owner for a lap it's stays on lol, always the way. I never got a chance to check it out but a bad connection at that cable looks likely

    My VX did the same thing to the lower engine harness. If you strip it back, you'll probably find that it's fried.

    New harness from Holden at the time was about $150. In hindsight, I probaby could have un-picked that cable from the harness and replaced it on it's own.

    Correct, the harness was totally fried.
    The harness was replaced, along with the alternator and about another 3 grands worth of stuff.
