So lately my battery meter on the dash has gone from normal to just barely above 8amps and the check engine light is on, it was doing it on and off over the last couple days and now its just on and losing charge way to fast. I am hoping its not the alternator due to I just put one in lil over a month ago. Any other possibilities? I have been running two different batteries in it and still the same problem persists.

Yes. I would check the alternator. It should be 14 to 14.5 while the engine is running at the battery

Damn, I still got the old one that went bad too, I suppose there's no way to take two bad ones and make one good one
