I have been told to linw with it. Also I have the new alternator and battery checked alternator putting out over 14 volts and battery holding over 12 volts. I have checked all connections and all are tight. Please help

you need the battery load tested and you need a ASE certified mechanic to check the charging system who wont tell you live with it.
