Help please

I have a 95 grand ZJ with the 5.2. I noticed my battery gauge is low. Just got a new battery last week. Would. It be the alternator?

Could be a weak alternator or parasitic draw. Trickle charge the battery overnight and disconnect it with not in use until you test the alternator and check for a draw.

some of the part stores do a FREE battery alt test. Its free .

Many of the Alt checks are easy - a DVOM, should be enough - are you comfortable using that?

When I see the price of OEM I think aftermarket.

thats not far off of where mine sits. I have a suspicion that the voltage regulator in the pcm is on its way out
