"Check charging system" light keeps flashing and beeping. The altinator and batery have both been replaced within the last few days. What else would cause this vehicle to shut down

    Most probably your alternator is not charging the battery, you battery is drained.

    Remember, both,the altinator are brand new,less than 14 days old. There are two different altinators for this truck. We made sure we that
    We had the one. Could there possibly be anything else?
