Question about Cars & Trucks
I have replaced the alternator and battery, had the charging system checked out at Les Schwab and it checked out good, however the check charging system light keeps coming on. Is there anything else it could be that I haven't checked yet??
Thee wire that does back to the battery runs to starter. check that wire

Take it to another auto parts store to test to verify.
If you put a voltmeter on the battery when the T+C was running, it should read 14-15V.
It could have a bad diode. If this is the case the alt. will be pumping out AC instead of DC. This is BAD. Batteries do not like this and the battery will fail because of it.
Be careful in those 'auto parts stores'. I have found that they employ alot of 'kids' who know little about how a car works. Try NAPA. They are much more knowledgeable and professional. But they cost alittle more.
