When the car is first started, the battery light on the dash stays on for a while, then goes off, usually after 3-7 minutes or so. I hooked up a voltmeter to the battery (which is new), and it hangs below 11v until the alternator kicks in. When it does, everything works like it should. The belt is pretty new and tension feels right. Connectors feel good too. Is there such a thing as a "lazy" alternator? I'm getting this car ready for my daughter to take to school, just getting everything sorted out before she takes it 5 hours away. BTW, the ABS problem turned out to be the LF wheel speed sensor.
