Hi Hope u guys can help me. I own a jeep patriot 2.0 FWD Auto CVT. My alternator recently gave out, and it was very sudden, no noises or squeeks to give it away. So I got a new alternator, was able to have it installed, but my battery light stays on and it wont charge. No other dash lights come on. My mechanic told me that he doesnt possess the star-scan to see if there are any codes, and that I would have to go to the dealership. Everything works well, lights, radio, all gauges, engine, transmission and so on. I only drove my jeep a few blocks from my mechanic's garage to my house and turned it off, and its been off since. Please HELP! I dread going to the dealership, im a college student with limited money. Are there other possibilities to why its not charging since everything works on my jeep? A fusible link I could replace? A fuse I could buy? Please help me with more realistic solutions before I burn money at the dealership.
