Sounds like the alternator is bad. Did you change the battery because the light was already on? HTH. -Jim


Time to test the alternator.


Being in the business ,we often put in a New Battery that had a bad cell .. Take the car into a repair shop to see if he has a bad cell or something else is drawing the battery power ..
