Battery light keeps coming on, even with a new battery. Had the alternator checked on the machine, it tested fine. Battery light still on, car feels like it is having to work hard to run. Also sometimes won't shift easily. Will pull off on side of road, restart car, then it seems to be fine. Will shift, no problem.

If the check engine light is on, have the computer scanned to identify if there are trouble codes stored. As far as the alt, if the battery is going dead or is weak as a result of the alt not properly charging, it can cause all sorts of problems. Since they checked the alt, have them check the fuseable link between the alt and battery to make sure it is good.
