Hey guys so I’m having some issues with my g8. I had my alt replaced about 2 months ago and my battery light just came on and it was saying alternator. When I started it in engineering mode it tells me my battery is running at 11.4v. I went and got a new battery started it up the light went off for 5 seconds then boom alternator comes on again. My power steering is also out.. what is going on with this thing 😂🤦🏻‍♂️ HELP

Wow, that's piling on.
What kind of alternator did you replace the original with, with these cars aftermarket brands seem to give our cars a tummy ache.
Its best to go with an AC Delco OEM alternator.
I'm going to guess your battery problem is going hand in hand with your alternator problem.
When I changed my battery I went with an AC Delco unit from a GM dealer.
The power steering, no idea, can only ask what kind of shape your serpentine belt is in.
If its shot that may explain the alternator problem too.
Check the PS fluid level while your at it.
Good luck.

Brand of battery? Brand of alternator? Checked both the battery and alternator connections?
