Who exactly told you it was overcharging? What is the voltage at the battery with the engine running?


took it to advance auto after the light came on and display showed "check charging system" back last october. everything was fine until last week when it came on again, they told me again the altenator was overcharging so they replaced it. I swapped it out and did not help. I changed all the other things stated and it still comes on 30 seonds after I start the car. sometimes when I'm driving the gages go out for a second or two?
