Will appreciate any feedback and advice.
I have a 2015 civic. Last night after i shut the car down for about 5 minutes and while I was still inside, It wouldn't turn on. I also ntoiced the flickering on the display when turning it on. Called CAA and they did a jumpstart - It initially didn't start but after a little while It did. The CAA person said that the battery needs to be replaced but they couldn't do it at the time since the battery service opens at 7 am or something.
I drove home. called CAA for a new battery this afternoon. Someone came in, tested the old battery saying it was no good and then replaced it with a new CAA battery. After testing the new battery, he said there is an issue with a charge and that the alternator is an issue. He then reinstalled the old battery saying he couldn't sell the new battery because he thinks it's an alternator issue as well as a battery issue.
Long story short - He said that when he did the diagnostic testing on the old battery, the charge was ok (i.e. the alternator was fine) but then doing it a couple of times on the new one, It had issues. with the old battery installed, the car did start but I am hesitant to drive If It's not charging as It might stop.
I wonder what I should do.
Any advice guys? Thanks a bunch.
