The battery light comes on the instrument panel. I have changed both the alternator and the battery but still no change. I disconnected the negative cable from the battery and put in an amp meter between the batter post and the cable to see if there was any current draw and I found none. The car does have a security system that works. The belt around the alternator is good and the right tension. Any ideas on what to do/check next?
