Check a wiring diagram, they probably are different circuits but may share a common ground (ground is term used when connected to negative battery terminal).
automatic trasmission fluid is the same as powersteering fluid
the interior fuse box is on the driver side kick panel [driver's left foot area] starting from the top left fuse you have a row of 5 fuses. next row below that, is a row of 6 fuses. THE CIGARETTE LIGHTER is number 5 [counting from the left ] fuse on the second row 15 amp
its the baterry
Weak battery? not holding a sufficient charge Alternator not charging battery sufficiently?
Battery light usually means alternator not charging. Most common solutions would be be a bad alternator, bad connection, or loose alternator belt. If the battery and alt test ok than check the connections to the alternator and battery. You may also have a battery drain (something that is staying on and killing the battery)
Disconnect the battery and just remove the bolts holding the alternator, disconnect the wire connection and remove the alternator.
I changed your battery?? I don't think so. I think your alternator is your problem!
Battery light usually means alternator not charging. Most common solutions would be be a bad alternator, bad connection, or loose alternator belt. A replacement alternator can be bad. If it is ok than most likely a poor connection to the alternator.
could be the alternator. could be the battery, the alternator charges the battery but does not stop the battery holding a charge.could also be a bad starter motor. take alternator off and have it tested. most places will test for free
Disconnect the battery. Unplug the alternator and take the belts off. Unbolt the alternator, and bolt the new one in. Put the belts back on it. Plug it back in and reconnect the battery. Voila! You changed your own alternator!
The main cause of battery drains is a bad electrical system. The electrical system is normally powered by the alternator and once the alternator goes bad the battery has a hard time holding a charge,
Yes. Anytime you work with the alternator you should disconnect the negative battery cable. You don't want to accidently touch a positive connection on the aternator while loosening the alternator holding nuts/bolts.
Have you verified that the replacment alternator is working? Test both the alternator and the battery. If a battery is allowed to go completely dead and then it sits for a few days it will "sulphate", meaning that the lead plates turn to lead sulphate, making them unable to hold a charge.

Have your battery and altinator tested it is possible that one or the other was bad from the store, if they are both ok then you have a drain somewhere in your electrical system somewhere, any shop with diagnostic tools should be able to trace the drain for you.
The alternator charges the car battery.
Have the battery checked out. It may have a dead cell and not holding a charge,
Disconnect your battery first. Then remove the belt you can buy or borrow a tool for the tension pulley or use a long bar just be careful where you rest it. Remove the nut on the back of the alternator holding the power wire then remove the to bolts holding the alternator.
Check for blown fuse(s) or blown fusible link(s).
If the battery and alternator are both good, Test them to be sure, then you need to take a multimeter and verify that the power from the alternator is actually reaching the battery. It could be a simple wiring problem
The alternator is probably over-charging the battery. Replace the alternator if the voltage at the battery terminals is over 15V when the engine is running.
Very easy. Disconnect the battery. Lift up the belt tensioner and slip the serpentine belt up off the alternator pulley. Remove the 3 bolts holding down the alternator. Unplug the voltage regulator cable from the alternator. Disconnect the positive battery cable from the alternator. Installation is the reverse of removal.
Check to see if the alternator is working Connect a voltmeter to battery: Without engine running reading should be about 12.8 With engine running reading should be 13.8-14.2 If not bad alternator
