as usual from me, an elementary question from an eager, but green, jeep owner:
my 02 X wouldnt turn over, but did start with a boost. Driving around, the "Check Gauges" light came on; I turned off the ignition AND my gauges started jerking erratically (with key out) and then jeep wouldnt turn over at all.
Q1: sound like the alternator?
Q2: is the alternator pretty easy to replace? i imagine correct belt-tightening is the biggest hurdle?
any help, advice would be great. thanks
