Have you changed the generator on your Cadillac?

Have you changed the generator on your Cadillac? I need an advice. I want to replace the generator, as it practically does not hold a charge and discharges very quickly. But I would not like to pay dearly for this. I have 2006 CTS. Any tips?

Are you sure your generator is the problem? When in doubt, it's best to get a recommendation from your mechanic. I found in this article https://somespeed.com/questions/so-c...in-a-2006-cts/ options for repairing a car with a faulty generator, found discussions on what is better to choose to replace the old generator and looked at the approximate cost. This is really not the cheapest repair, so before you spend money on buying a new generator, I advise you to check what is the cause of the car breakdown and what led you to this. In the worst case, if you need to buy a new generator, you will know what conditions lead to its early breakdown and costly replacement.
