Electrical problem
2000 Dodge Neon 4 cyl Automatic 170000 miles

I just had my transmission replaced and put in a new battery as well as a new cam shaft sensor. This morning my car began to shudder and the battery light came on. I think my problem is with the alternator, what is involved in getting that checked and repairing my alternator

Welcome, use a digital voltmeter, take a reading across the battery posts, everything turned off, note the reading. Start the vehicle, take second reading across the battery posts, the second reading should be higher than the first, if charging system is working. Some of the national brand autostores will test alternator. If the alternator checks good, you'll have to check wiring circuits.
