Hi

The gauge that has the battery symbol is reading very low. I recently replaced the alternator and battery 6 months ago. The battery light came on last week, but once I accelerated, it started to rise back to normal. Now the gauge is reading at the botom 1/4 and it rises and falls when I accelerate. Any thoughts?
