Update: Installed a new alternator today.

Ironically, after the light coming on three times last weekend, it never came on again this week so it was an uneventful commute. Regardless, I appreciate all the responses. Maybe I could have gotten away with it? Who knows. It won't be something to be concerned with now.

FWIW, the failing alternator came from FCP a few years ago so it'll be covered under their Lifetime Warranty Replacement. It won't cost me anything for the replacement.

Shout out to FCP FTW! I've used them for hundreds of parts over the years. Try them if you haven't yet as they are great to deal with.

FCP has really great customer service. Glad you got that sorted out.

Half a mile after the alternator on my 88 765 failed before the battery was down to less than 8 volts. 1.5 miles to get a charging system test after a full battery charge. But needed 5 jump starts to drive that same 1.5 miles back home.
