The issue is a cheap electronic regulator in the alternator. The way to look at is it is like buying a plastic shovel to move gravel. It will work for a year then start cracking and finally fail. When you buy a steel shovel it last for 7 years with no problems until the handle breaks. Why everyone recommends Denso products is they use a regulator that costs 3 times as much as the generic one the others use. That is why your original alternator lasted 85K.Hello Folks: We replaced alternator on our 2014 odyssey (85k miles). Put a remanufactured advanced auto parts alternator. Its been 3 months now and the battery light comes up daily for few seconds and goes away. Its started 1 week after we replaced it. Advance auto checked battery and alternator twice and said both were ok. What could be the issue ? Van has not stalled or stopped working.
