Hi all i have a y plate 6n2 polo 1.4 8v Had it for a number of years and well looked after. i was out on work visits when I got back in the car to go home and it wouldn’t start. It wasn’t getting close to starting. RAC came out and jump started it and all was well. Initially he diagnosed that the battery was in poor condition, it’s a Bosch battery that I put on at Christmas time when we had the cold spell. It’s not given a hint of any problem. We turned car off and got back in to start and nothing, jumped it again and then get diagnosis of alternator not charging. Drove home 12 miles park car up and then turn engine off, go to re start and nothing. i spoke to my car garage today who said likely to be alternator but you should have had battery light flashing on dash, i didn’t get that. the garage recommned that I jump it and leave running and then rev it and remove earth lead from battery if it keeps running it battery if it stops then it’s the alternator. what are people’s thoughts on the issue and where is the earth lead, my battery is one with a terminal on top with several wires going the earth lead the back cable with 10amp? thanks
