P0505 Idle Control System Malfunction, which may also the cause of your red battery light.

after i swapped my dme relay i actually had a issue were i was getting a cel for battery voltage/ dme relay and it cleared itself then a week later my batt light came on and you could hear the grinding of the bearings on my alternator check the voltage at the batt yourself with car on should get around 14 turn on acc and so forth it shouldnt drop below 12 volts your voltage regulator could of been bad as well maybe they missed that
