Your alternator is shot. Just because the store says it works doesn't mean it does. They do not a "Load" test on the alternator. I cannot explain it, but that's what the dealer does when the test electrical components like the alternator and the battery. They put a load on the piece, and then it will show if it really works or if it fails.

Try a new alternator. If you were smart, you got a lifetime warranty.

no, they did a load test, I watched them do it. and i tested the alternator with my multimeter when it was running and it was putting out 14.5 volts. I did get the lifetime warranty, but i will have to see what i can come up with tomorrow.
I was told that the car parts store load test is not the same as the one a dealer does:confused: :confused: If you have a lifetime warranty, swap that bitch out and see what happens.
