Thanks Rickm5X3; I appreciate the input. I have been chasing a delayed alternator charging issue concurrent with the new battery install and thought it may be related to registering. Ever see an alternator not charge for 8 minutes during the first start of the day, then work fine thereafter charging at 13.9-14v? Next day during initial start-up, scenario repeats. Been happening for 3 weeks now and monitoring with OBC test 9. Belt and tensioner are tight and not slipping. Very strange.......
