Hot alternator on 2000 ford focus
\015 I have a high mileage 2000 ford focus. It runs great but recently the alternator went bad on it. I replaced the alternator but instatnly the unit gets very hot. Hot enough that i'm confident it is what destroyed the old alternator. Does anybody have any ideas what could be causing this? The system charges and seems to be good. Even without the car running, with the key in the run possition the alternator gets hot. not as hot as it is when it's running but still out of the normal.\015
