Probably lost a diode in the rectifier/regulator... I think it can be replaced independently of the entire alternator.

not sure if just the regulator can be replaced on its own with the water cooled alternators?

I'm not sure either but I do see the regulator-only part listed the 4.6iS and 4.8iS cars.... so I assume it can be R&R'ed.

What version of the ibus app are you running? Some people have been complaining of a “code” bug. Thankfully I have not had it. Do you follow the Facebook page?
