Altenator is less than 2 years old, suzuki bought and installed

brand new battery put in

autozone tested battery and altenator and said both were perfect

spent $90 at suzuki to "find" problem. They told me my brand new battery is not holding a charge

Replaced battery with another new battery

suzuki said it was holding the charge yet the 2 lights come on together and shut off together.

usually its early in the morning or after 8 hours of work. After a little driving, they shut off. But when they are on, my headlights are dim and the heat doesnt work at good. Im not sure if its electrically or not.

He emergency brake light on may be the abs unit draing on the battery clean the battery to body ground wire see if that helps. Try unplugging the e brake and see if that makes a difference if the body ground doesn't work. It cold be the dash is going bad as well.

I have cleaned the ground cord and really havent seen a difference. Where can I unplug the e-brake? Is there a fuse?

I can't find a fuse for the ebrake so it is probably hooked to something else. The dah fuse I is fuse 22 that may do the same thing pull that overnite and see if it makes a difference.
