1997 Ram 1500, 5.9L

Brand new alternator and battery.

An alternator test done by Autozone sees 12v going into the battery, not the 13.5v they're expecting. We think there's a drain somewhere.

Possibly related issue: recently the "maint required" light came on. Checked and there's no error code. AC compressor and radio stopped working recently, but no blown fuses.

My Question is: what could the "maint required" light mean, and could it be related to these issues?

? Are you confusing that with the check engine light? Where is this "maint required" light located? Did you check the fuse in the engine compartment?
Hey - thanks for the reply - The light is in the speedo and it literally and exactly says "MAINT REQUIRED" - its red/orange, and all caps - not the check engine light. It comes on within 1 minute of starting. Yeah I did check the fusebox under the hood too.
