Replaced the alternator last fall along with the tensioner and belt. Replaced alternator with a Duralast. Since then my "Check Charging System" keeps flashing on, but will turn off a couple seconds later. Can happen numerous times throughout a long drive. Belt has plenty of tension. Trying to avoid taking the alternator back out again and redoing the work. Does this sound like a bad alternator, or is it because it's an aftermarket part that my Honda doesn't like? Anyone else experience this before?

Duralast is definitely not a brand I would put anywhere near my cars. But the blame here has to go to the tensioner and perhaps a stretched belt. So I would probably replace both of them with quality parts.
