so i went to move my car and the check charging system came on

car has almost 79k, new alternator since around september, new battery in june, checked all wires all were secured firmly

and as a check i did turn the car off then turn it back on, the light and messege indicator did pop back

so what should i be checking next???


well i just noticed that i left my new garmin navi plugged in all day so that might be the reason so im going to see if a new battery will fix it....

thats what i thought.....but i just wanted to try a new battery...i was planning on putting one in the trunk for the amp anyways

so i took it to the shop and its definetly the alternator....but could an alternator really die after 4-5 months, and 9k miles??????
