I have had an alternator go out on other cars I had. This seems that the voltage regulator failed on the alternator. The part used to be outside of the alternator, I think that the component (the regulator) is now inside the alternator housing.

Me too I am also getting a problem and it seems worse the colder it gets. Has anyone tried a car battery insulation bag even Amazon sells them! I’ve seen an article by Toyota that says once a week you should drive home and leave your car running for an hour but you should not leave it unattended which I think is the daftest idea ever.
