2013 Toyota Corolla LE. I had my battery and alternator

Customer Question

2013 Toyota Corolla LE. I had my battery and alternator tested, replaced both. New battery was fine, but the old alternator's voltage regulator had tested bad. I replaced the alternator this morning. Auto zone Duralast Gold. Now I have all kinds of bad electrical problems. Cannot shift, no power windows, key trunk release does not work, no a/c, no lights. Engine starts fine, with all kinds of error lights.

Tried battery disconnect and waited 10 min, for possible ECU reset. Took out the two ECU 10A fuses and reset them (not burned out). Nothing improved. Door open yelps work. Engine starts and occasionally dies from slowing idle; usually maintains idle fine throughout this scenario. Never has died from slowing idle before.
