A battery light always indicates a charging problem, not the actual battery. With you having electrical issues, like the shifting and speedo, I would suspect the alternator is not charging properly and or you have a wiring issue and not the battery. I would have thought your mechanic would have tested for this before replacing the battery twice. Maybe consider another mechanic?
