hmm first of who tested the alt.? your or the dealership because any 'dummy light' on the dash is not ok and that tech needs to check his books.
over here in iraq our fleet of PAH (personal a$$ hauler) vehicles is mostly chevy/dodges
when this light comes on its only a matter of time before you need to be jumped over and over.
then we change out the alt, and depending on how long they have been running with the light on the battery too.
i believe autozone has a bench tester if you take it off and bring it to them they could test it
but then your faith is in someone who might not know whats up
any local alt/start rebuild shop whould prolly test it for free.
cant watch youtube vids here so if it was already answered im sorry.
