My van's battery light came on a few weeks ago; that same night I was stranded. Left car for 2 days, jumped for 30 seconds drove fine (light still on). Took it to AutoZone to have starting system checked; battery was slightly drained so could not check alternator (battery and starter are only 6 months old tops). Took it to Goodyear and they said that the alternator is good, but voltage regulator was bad and suggested replacing the computer. I drove car for 4 days until it completely died; would not stay charged. I had computer replaced today; car was put on charger (not sure how long. Install and charge was approx 20 minutes (computer was preprogrammed). Battery light was on; as soon as charger turned off car would die. Now there is a clicking and ding from the driver side fuse box near the computer.
