Default battery light

Well, it looks like my alternator has given up the fight. The light came on coming home from work yesterday. I got a p2503 error. I put my voltmeter on the battery, engine off and got 11.9 volts. Started the engine and got 11.4 volts. Sounds like I've got a project for this weekend.

I would have the system tested. First I would clean the posts good. Can't charge if to much corrosion.

Battery terminals already done. That was the first thing I tried. I may try to drive it the 4 miles to Autozone and have them test it today.
