Re: Do I need a new battery?

No leaks that I know of. I remember about a year ago, when my blower motor was getting replaced, they must have hit the alternator wire or something. They gave me the truck back and I had the battery light on the dash. They re-connected the wire to the alternator and it was fine. The wires going to the alternator look a bit iffy as they're likely original, but there are no lights on my dash indicating a problem.

Alternator is only 2 years old or so.

Will Advance Auto/Autozone, etc. that does a free alternator and battery test be able to see what the issue is? I had a battery that was giving me crap in an old car "pass" one of their tests back in the day, so I don't know how much faith I put in those.
