Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Battery light keeps coming on in 2013 Dodge
Journey. I pulled both the battery and alternator

times. Any ideas on why light would still be coming
on?

insufficient grounding...clean the black cable connections to the frame and to the engine~ be sure the battery is newish...stop accepting a charge-up 10 percent per year~

The charging system is computer controlled, so I would have it live data scanned to see if there is a failure in the charging side of the computer.
