If the 140 amp is the same configuration as the original then choose the 140. The 140 amp rating is the available amps to give. Also go higher in amps available but maintain the same voltage for whatever device you're replacing.

SOURCE: We need to replace the 120 amp alternator fuse but

A short or a bad battery could have caused the problem.  If your taking it to a shop for repair, it becomes their problem and not your problem.

2007 jeep compass battery light

The light is supposed to mean the battery is not being charged by the alternator.
It's possible the alternator is failing when it gets hot, so testing it in a shop may not show any problems.
I would suggest checking output when the warning light is on if possible.
