Question about 1998 Chevrolet Malibu
You stated that you found the problem on your own. What was it? I am having the same problem. New battery, alternator checks good but check battery light remains on and battery drains after a short period of driving. Also, the A/C light blinks on and off. Any help would be appreciated.
The problem with my malibu was the plug going to the alternator. i went to the junk yard and cut a plug end off the wiring harness and replaced it on mine and it's been working fine. i don't know why it drains the battery with the broken wire in the plug, but it did. i found the problem by wiggleing the wire while my wife watched the dash for the battery light to go out. ken!

The battery light in my 1998 malibu just came on the other day. The serpentine belt lookd new... The car starts right up.... Can I ignore this light?

Have you tried checking the battery cables? Typically, if the alternator is charging and the battery is good, but the vehicle still is shutting itself off, than something is disrupting the alternator from getting power back to the battery.
