    I looked at the manual. Not much help. alternator belts are moving. Car started and I drove it home, with the light on. If the alternator was bad, wouldn't the car not run?

We replaced the alternator and the battery and the belt tensioner but charging system light still stays on


There are two things that generally cause a battery warning after an alternator replacement. The most common is a loose connection either with the control plug (aka “relay” plug-in), charging line connection, or the ground. The other is a blown fuse or defective connector or relay, which could have been broken or shorted when the alternator was installed or on the first start-up after its installation.
You can check that the alternator is supplying enough power by starting the car and disconnecting the battery. If the car dies, the alternator isn't working properly (or a wiring/relay/fuse issue).

Battery lite came just replaced the battery and chkd alternator (it was good). I jump the battery and trk stays running about 10 mins and dies. Could it still be the alternator?


i might be a bad altinator but i would double check your battery. a bad battery will kill a new altinator. does the battery light stay on? if the battery light on the dash is not on you may have another problem...

My battery died i got a jump but now my srs light stays on


TRY DISCONNECTING THE BATTERY TERMINALS FOR 5 MINUTES. BE AWARE THAT THE STEREO MAY HAVE A LOCK OUT CODE. RETRIEVE THIS CODE BEFORE YOU DISCONNECT THE BATTERY. HOPE THIS HELPS. BEST OF LUCK TO YOU.
