Question type: Maintenance & repair

Hi I have a Vauxhall insignia 09. Its in limp
mode and recently took it to 4 different
garages, which all 4 said I need a new
alternator, as the battery light is on. I
changed the alternator and the battery light
is still on and car still in limp mode. Please

Did you change the alternator yourself? If so do you have diagnostic equipment to plug into the vehicles on board computer and clear the faults recorded? - If not I would advise taking the car to your local garage and having that done - it usually will clear most issues and at worst bring up any other faults recorded with your vehicle
