Hi, does a 2000 Ford Focus ZX3 have the Smart Charge System? Do they require the Silver Calcium Battery?

I have the battery light on all the time even after replacing the Alternator. I just bought this car and the previous owner stated that the battery is quite new. It charges at a constant 13.5 at idle or higher revs and with all lights, radio etc turned on.Not sure what is going on. Any thoughts? Thanks.

What's the date on the battery? It's always possible (if you got a reman. unit especially) that the alternator you bought/installed is also bad.

Hi, guess what? the blue wire the alternator connector broke but was not obvious. Now I have a spare alternator. LOL
