Hey guys ever since I got my Jeep running I've had a small problem. The generator light comes on. I've replaced the battery and now though it doesn't always happen, when I first start the XJ in the morning the light comes on and the battery meter is very low like it is drawing the bat pretty hard, then I drive and there's a squeaking then it stops and the bat meter goes back to normal. And also I can't have the fan on high or else it will draw on the bat also. Do I need a new alternator or is it something else? Thanks Guys

Sounds like a loose belt.

might be dirt in the alternator causing it to lose contact. thats what mine was. a BFH and some canned air fixed it
