12.8 ish. I don't remember exactly since I tested it a couple hours ago, but it was definitely good.
Here's a fun twist. I went back out to test the voltage at the battery and the alternator and took my wife to run the accelerator. Everything was testing fine, and I had her run it up to 3500 to test at elevated rpm. The light went out. It hasn't come on since. I took it to O'Reilly for a separate errand and had them check it. They said it tests fine, but the battery is a bit low (makes sense since it was completely drained from the bad alternator.
So, two questions. Would a low battery cause the light? I thought it only came on with a charging issue. If so, why would it have been extinguished as soon as the new alternator was in the entire way home, then come on when I started it again?
