Hi guys when I started my car this morning the battery light on the dash stayed on, I know that it signals a problem in the charging system. Any of you experienced this? Changed the alternator 2 years ago and the relay. Thanks

Where did you get the replacement alternator from? I've heard a lot of complaints about cheap replacement alternators. Take it for a in-car test at Pep Boys or a similar place, or the place that replaced it.
