How bad.old is the battery??

Needs to be properly load tested with a carbon pile unit, it may have internal short draining surface current ....

A bad battery will stress the alternator and manifest strange behaviour from the ECU... Philip

Batt has some age on it, i'll pass this thought on to the mechanic thats working on it. Thanks and if any more thoughts out there please chime in.

Shouldn't have to tell a real mechanic how to check a Battery and the electrical circuits, especially if he has basic tools (AmpClamp, DVOM)... Philip
