My battery keeps dying, I got a new one last year and my alternator is overcharging. The check engine light came on, the car started stalling and acted like it wanted to cut off. The check engine light stayed on for two days and went off. The car is completely dead now but before the check engine light came on I was having to get a jump everyday
