I took the forums suggestion and bought the 49-DL battery from the Zone and today the bettery light came on? Is there a reset button or am I now having another problem like the altinator?:cry:

Thanks FLA666

Sounds like your alternator... There aren't any stores that can check it off the car, so don't try it (like I did :D)

Autotalent has alternators for pretty cheap!

The battery lite doesn't mean the battery is bad. It means power is coming from the battery. So if the engine is running and the battery lite is on, there is a charging problem. Regulator or alternator. Simple check for voltage output should pinpoint the problem.
