Battery light came on in my 2003 Dodge Neon. Stopped immediately, tested the battery, said 100%. Took it to an Advanced Auto. They tried to test the alternator, revved it to 2000 RPMs and it died. Jumped the car, got it home, and it wouldnt start. Engine was trying to turn over. Jumped it again, got it to start but it shuddered and shook and had a squeak. Then it died. When trying to start, it only clicked. Towed it and had the alternator replaced. Now it starts but runs terrible. Still shakes and shutters. Engine light is now on. Code given was P0352 (something to do with the ignition coil #2) Replaced the entire coil pack. No change. What else could it be? A bad starter? Solenoid? Relay?

Thanks. The mechanic who replaced the alternator said that it was probably something silly and easy to repair, but wouldnt he have checked those things? Geez, I thought the guy was reputable

might that also explain that prior to the battery light coming on I started getting crappy mileage?

EDIT- REPLACED SPARK PLUGS. CAR IS THE SAME
