Hey guys, I have a 2012 Fiat 500 Pop 5 speed. I purchased it with a supposed bad battery, replaced it, and drove it back home. About 3-4 days after sitting in the driveway, the vehicle turns on, but there is no power steering. I haven't checked to see if any other accessories weren't working, but the radio and dash lights were working, so I assume all of the others were. The battery light is also on, on the dash, and from the few times I have started it in the past week, I have been seeing a flashing exclamation point. Could this be an alternator problem? Or is there a procedure to relearn the battery after a replacement? Thanks

Welcome to the forum. A strong battery to run modern cars. Has a 12.4 volt output. Test you battery output. If you can get the running. Take it to any auto part store. They will do a load test free of charge. This procedure, will show if the charging system. Is working properly. 14 volts output should charging from the alternator.
