I have an 05 Freestyle and I have relaced both the battery and alternator. Immediately after they were replace, the check engine light came on. After about 4 hours, the check engine light went off, and now the battery light and "check charging system" comes on. It will only stay on for about 5 minutes, then it will go off for a while. Some times it will go on when the car is under high revs, or even sitting at a set of lights. There is no making sence of it. The voltage when the car is running, is 14.3 even when the battery light is on. ??????????
