This is funny.I have a 2003 Hyundai Sonata 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic with 85,000 miles. My light came on (July 10) and I went and had the charging system tested because my battery was only two years old. The "boys" told me my alternator was fine and it was my battery it could not be charged up all the way. I took it back to the store I purchased the battery from and they tested the battery and it showed "good". Rather than argue with me, they changed out my battery since it was still under the "free replacement" warranty. I am thinking. Kewl I am good to go! NOT! Driving down the road three days later and everything starts shutting down; I make it within ONE block of the shop and it dies. I have it towed and $600 later it WAS the alternator! The $600 includes replacing the two belts, since they will have it torn apart anyway! Good luck!
