300tdi help

Probably a stupid question... I am assuming that there is no harm in driving a diesel without a functioning alternator?? What engine fuctions require electrical power from the alternator other that the starter, and in my case an electric fan?? As long as my battery can start the engine and turn the fan when neccessary I should be able to make short trips as neccessary??? I hope so.

any input is appreciated

thanks tom

You are fine as long as your battery does not go dead. If it does, your vehicle will die with no additional power being supplied to it. I would get it fixed as soon as you can.
