2000 Chevrolet Ventures - Orginal Alternators that were installed have sent electrical issues through out the system .The ground screw or pin in the alternator was to short to ground correctly, apparently there was a silent recall to replace the pin / screw . but now the supply of replacement part's has run out and you now must purchase a new alternator .. Very expensive, and GM is not backing this up ...
