Re: Low Battery Power
Clean battery contact on the cover and if possible on the far side of the battery compartment (spring and metal connector). You can use fine abrasive such as 3m or scotchbrite.
Oxidation buildup increases the reistance and the camera ' thinks' that the battery is depleted.

The check engine light could relate to something else - not your battery or alternator.
If your battery isn't charging from the alternator an illuminated battery symbol would appear.
It could be many things - low oil level, low coolant level, low windscreen washer fluid level. It could even be an electronic 'fault' - which a computerised diagnostic check would identify.
If the battery warning light is illuminated the first thing you should do is to check the tension of the alternator belt. You say that a new battery and alternator have been fitted? Take it to an auto electrician - he should identify any fault within minutes.
This sounds like the laptop is faulty if within minutes the laptop is totally drained of power from a so-called full charge. Because the laptop is new then I recommend that you send or take the laptop back for repair or replacement as it's still covered by the manufacturers warranty.
I install these panels. For the low battery message to clear you need to power the system down completely. To do this you need to unplug the battery and also unplug the transformer plugged into an electrical outlet. When you power the system back up, you need to first plug in the battery leads. Then the transformer.
