Question about Cars & Trucks
Batt.light on batt alt and starter check ok?
Batteries are difficult to test properly. They must be tested under load to determine the internal resistance... once the internal resistance is too high then you must replace the battery. Using a multimeter test the voltage. Write it down. Then turn on the headlights maybe even the radio and the blower, wipers etc (leaving the engine off) then take a voltage reading again. A charged battery should be near 14 volts readings below 12 volts shows a bad battery.

14.6 means your voltage regulator or diode is suspect Despite having new alternator .Ive cross refrenced your smptoms in the haynes workshop manual and alternator is your only end answer.The haynes test is to start vehicle with multi meter connected across the battery terminals,increase the engine speed until the reading remains steady should be approximately 12 to 13v and no more than 14v.switch on as many accessories as possible(headlights heater blower radio etc)check that the alternator maintains the regulated voltage at around 13 to 14v.If the regulated voltage is not as stated then alternator is to be repaired/replaced.Good luck with it and a happy new year.

Cables from alt to battery can be deposited/burned/oxidized. In this case battery wont get charged. Also check the alternator connections. Cable might be burned or not tight enough
Also serpentine belt might be not tight enough

if the number missing from the code is a zero it would be your maf sensor. the first thing to try is just to reset it. unhook your battery for about ten minutes... hook it back up again. incidentally this could reset the battery light being on... doesn't always work... if it doesn't let us know we will forward other solutions
