Replaced the alternator after getting it tested at Advanced. When I reconnected the battery I noticed it was corroded, so much that the car was actually having electrical problems (wouldn't start and lights were dim). I have cleaned the terminals. I also but a new tensioner on the serpentine belt but still having problems with the radio. I have been getting shocked a lot by the door jam getting out of the car. Given it is winter and you tend to get shocked more in the dry air, but could it possibly be a ground?

Any help is appreciated!
