About a week ago, my battery light randomly came on, had the alternator tested and it was bad. I changed the alternator out with a 130amp O'reilly. Battery light still showed, so I checked the batteries a couple days later. One was dead, and the other was good to recharge, but I just went ahead and replaced them both.
Still, my battery light is on. I had a mechanic check everything out yesterday, thinking it was maybe a loose wire or something, and he said everything looked good.
I really want the DC 270amp, with 1 gauge charge cables but right now I can't really dish out $540 + the extra for a 3' and 75" charge cables.
Any ideas what I can do/check to make this thing work until I can get the DC?
Is there a possibility that the thing is still throwing a code, and my alternator is charging like it's supposed to? Or do codes only show up on the orange wrench and check engine lights?
