2003 Sedona, after timing belt and sepentine belt replacement (also, transmission flush), brake and alternator warning lights started coming on. Kia service said I need upgraded alternator (can you say $650.00!!). Local mechanic took alternator out (3.5 hours/$285.00); alternator/starter shop rebuilt alternator ($125). Ran for less than a day, then brake and alternator warning lights came back on.
Any suggestion welcome.

Interesting. I believe the alternator light only comes on when the alternator stops charging. I wonder if there is some sort of bad contact between the battery level wire and the alternator, making it seem like the alternator is bad.
