2001 Wrangler, Sport

Help, Last week it seems my alternator went as I was driving. Got to Auto Zone and they said my jeep has no codes but my Alternator was bad. I replaced my Alternator and Battery but the gauge light and Engine light still on and I feel that its not getting power. There are no codes but I did the hold the button turn engine and got

BUS 60
Panel Angle Open
05-02

Any suggestions, I really want to try to fix myself as funds are tight.

Autozone alternators are JUNK. Have it tested at a reputable shop and if its bad (probably is) get a refund and get a quality alternator from Napa or a local rebuild facility if there's one in your area. I see nothing but trouble with cheap part store electronic components. The price is less, but the quality sucks and you'll have to change them out all the time.

I read an old post where it took several "starts" for it to clear. OBD Scanners are pretty inexpensive now and super handy to clear/reset codes.

Out of curiosity--but when I had a CEL I had a code saying a reset had been done within the last 50 starts. Do you think that it takes 50 starts for a code to clear itself once it has been resolved?

IDK as I always clear my codes with my OBD Scanner. I don't like waiting for it to clear just in case a new code pops up for something else.

OBD2 regulations = 3 good trips to turn off the CEL and 40 warm-up cycles for the history code to clear by itself. AS long as the code is not current the light won't be on anyway.
