If you have an AutoZone, Discount Auto, Pep Boys or any decent auto store around you, they will be able to check your battery and charging system for FREE. Just ask them.

BTW, did you get your oil light problem fixed by changing the sensor????

I'm thinking you had an obstruction (sludge) in where the sensor goes. Once you replaced it. Finally cleared up.
