    The alternator is supposed to output DC (direct current.) If a diode fails there will be AC (alternating current) superimposed on the flat DC that should be there. AC is what house current is, it switches from negative to positive and back again very, very rapidly. You can't see this with an ordinary voltmeter, you need an oscilloscope. A very good shop will have one/

    A valve or solenoid can stick from either wear or contamination in the fluid.
