Question about Toyota Camry
Well the charging system is simply a wire from the alternator to the battery .. the only short there could possibly be is that wire and to fix is to replace the wire (thats is the positive wire) the negative is the car body as a ground so that cant cause a short.
A bad alternator can damage a battery what was your charging voltage ?? once its between 13.5 to 14.2 you should have been fine. The charge light eighter meant a f ailing battery or alternator that was lower than 13.5 (which would not damage the battery) or highter than 14.2 (which would kill the battery). It could also be (very rare though) if you have an external regulator or rectifier (which most modern cars dont)..
anyway considering both alternator and battery failed (replace alternator . battery and wire from alternator to battery and you should be fine.)
