Default Any Ideas What's Wrong With My Cruiser?

As I posted in my previous post (Weird Problem) I was having problems with my battery light coming on so I took it to service. They replaced the battery and alternator and claimed it was fine. I drove the car home from service and took it out last night and AGAIN the light went on. I have narrowed it down to having something to do with the headlight/fog lights because the problem only occurs now when they are on.

Multifunction Switch has been a ongoing problem with some PT's. I have a MF switch (no fog set up).

Yep, a really cheap switch. Doesn't matter what year PT.

So it's probably the multifunction switch that's causing this? hmmm

I took it into service yesterday and the computer error showed a dead cell in the battery, it was covered under warranty since I got the battery from them and its under 2 years old. I just hope this fixes it and it doesn't have to go back for a 4th time

I just bought a replacement brand new multi-function switch with foglights because mine went bad.

Darn multi-switch, junks!

Cars under warranty but I don't want to pay $106 for deductible and the aggrivation of waiting, or leaving the car there. Its a $75 replacement part, with not too much difficulty it will be replaced by me!
