Battery charging system light on

Well first I made a stupid mistake of changing my battery out and the one I put in was not up to par when I tried to put back it was on the wrong side and started to smoke I was able to start and drive the car like 30 miles I left it running because I saw that my power locks and trunk wouldn’t work an also the radio but as I left in the house to get my tools and the car died I was gonna go take it so I could have the problem found now I think it’s the alternator I did see smoke come from there and just want to know if anyone knows about this prob and could help diagnose I am only have one shot at fixing it as in the only one in my family with a car I’m trying to get it up and running so any help would b greatly aooreciated the problem shut the car off so I believe it’s the alternator but don’t know if that’s the only problem

Hi, did you get this problem solved? Unfortunatly you may have caused a short in more than one system. I would check all the fuses at this point.

if you are in USA, take your vehicle to any nearest Walmart, they will do it for free

Not sure about Walmart but Autozone and advance auto parts will do a charging system test for free.

I am 100% sure that walmart does it for free. It has happened to me when I was in USA.
