How do you clear a " charging system fault " ?? This came on after a battery change and repeats itself every 10 minutes .

I checked alldata and seems that the battery voltage sets that off. You may want to drive the car for bit to get the battery up to voltage. Is the voltage meter on the dash reading above 13.5V. It appears from the alldata info, it is clearable by repairing the problem. i would check your terminals to make sure they are clean. Also it may be worth a shot trying to clear it from DIC, but alldata said nothing about clearable. It would be a P0562 or P0563 Code. Good luck, hope this helped

The battery voltage runs between 13.7 and 14.2. I have been driving the car long enough that everyjthing should be charged.
I will check the terminals again tonight.
I'll check to see if any codes on the DIC are back and try to clear them again.

Thank you for your imput.

You might have to run to the local auto parts store and have them check the ALT.
