Alternator replaced then told a dead cell in battery-replaced battery but I brought the old (less than 1 yr. old) battery home.
Had it checked at place of purchase, no dead cell. Took it to local Pep Boys-they made a phone call then checked the battery-dead cell (SURPRISE). Took the old battery back to place of purchase-they suggested I put it back in my truck and see what happens. Truck is operating fine.
Old battery has been in since Sept. 2009. Travelers get ripped off. From PA and this took place in Oklahoma City, OK on Sept.
7, 2009 on a Ford F150 truck.
