ok, got the alternator install and battery charged, went around the loop for a test drive.
adout 4 miles later the battery light comes on.
at home the battery had 3 volts, w/the light on 1/2 volt(car not running).
next day took the battery back to o'reillys.
checks out good?
took the car to o'reillys.
new alternator and new battery checks good?
check all fuses=good.
the only thing i can think of is before the test run the cables weren't on tight.
the car is now running great(170,044 miles).
thanks for your help!
