Default battery light

hi everyone! new to the forum. I recently bought a 2008 pt cruiser, when i was driving the battery light comes on and it completley shuts off. I replaced the battery, took it to the shop three times, got two tests on the battery, and one test on the charging system that all came out fine. Can anyone help lead me in the right direction with this, i really don't know what to do. Thanks!

OK, you replaced the battery and had the charging system tested. Is it still shutting off on you or did the battery replacement help?

If it's not shutting off, the battery was your problem, so what is the question, what do yo need to know?

Batteries are like anything else. Sometimes you get good ones that last for years, other times not. I used to buy the Sears Die-hard for my Corvette. Every year for 3 years it died, they replaced it for free. Finally got the Gold battery from Auto Zone and haven't had a problem for a couple years now.
