Hi guys i have an EL and on Friday night the battery light in the cluster came on and the battery charge went through the roof past 16 (the highest on the gauge), then shortly after all the speedo and cluster readings went dead followed by them coming back to normal when I came to a complete stop (apart from the battery which went back to overcharging). Long story short I got the alternator checked and it confirmed that it was overcharging the battery however are all of the above symptoms (related to the cluster dials cutting in and out) usual alternator symptoms that come with the problem?

I just hope theres not something more going on thats all. Also how does $150 sound to get a 2nd hand alternator fitted?

Thanks guys

Sounds about right for an alternator overcharging.
For $150 you could get a reco alternator and fit it yourself.
No point putting secondhand s**t in thats just going to f**k out again.
