Angry Charging system light

So I posted a question several weeks ago about my Check Charging System warning light coming on intermittently and have yet to receive ONE response....WTF ? Seems everyone else gets answers for even the most mundane questions. To say I'm a bit disappointed is an understatement.
So I'll try again.. I have a 06 with the V6 ,it's has the pony package. I've replaced the battery and checked the outputs with a multi meter(all readings normal). Is the alternator the culprit? Or something else?

Yes its your alternator i had same issue mine started with check engine light then I replaced with a duralast and my check charging system came I used a performance one after and the solved problem . Its a common thing especially for an 06 mu advice swap it before it leaves you stranded like it did to me

509pony's answer sounds good to me, 100% agree. I probably missed your question when you Posted it before.

Charging system light

509 pony said it best! I would replace it along with the belt of you can. When they start to go they trigger all sorts of weird things.

So it was the voltage regulator in the alternator that was the culprit. Going to replace the alternator and serpentine belt. Thanks again for your help..

Just fyi I bought alternators from auto zone and orilleys brand new and they had the wrong regulaters in them so I would stay clear from them just food for thought.
