My alternator died on me a few weeks back. Before it went dead my dash warning lights illuminated. I replaced the alternator but my parking brake, ABS and my traction control light are still orange. I am assuming this is from loss of power prior to replacing the alternator. Any suggestions in how to reset these lights or do i need to bring it somewhere to have them shut off?

You probably toasted your DSC unit! Did you jump start the car?

I would disconnect the battery for about 10 minutes and see if that helps. Let's hope zuck is wrong because the DSC is not a cheap fix.
