My wife took her '06 G6 to have the oil pressure sender changed, it was giving intermittent low oil pressure indications. Anyway, that was done, and soon afterwards, all the warning lights started coming on and the car died. I was at work many miles away when this happened, her boss and another guy decided the battery was dead, so they bought another one and installed it, problem solved.... until today on the way to the gas station, did it again. This time it started up, but barely made it home, battery dead again. I'm pretty sure the alternator is dead, not charging. Here's my question-
The oil sender is basically behind the starter...... Is it possible to short the starter if the guy who worked on it didn't disconnect the battery, and damage the alternator?? There were no electrical issues at all before or was worked on
