Never heard back from you. Tried all ideas of reset with no success.
Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 2 months ago.

sorry had to rush out . before you did any work did you have to jump the vehicle? and or did you disconnect the battery before you replaced the alternator?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
It is now my son's car and he did have to
Boost it off to get it going. I have a personal friend who is working on it and I believe he disconnected the battery before e
Replacing the alternator.
