If it was not integrated into the alternator, the voltage regulator may have failed.  I don't know where it is located in your car but if it is external, you may be able to find it by following the smallest gauge wire attached to the alternator backward. They are generally connected with 'quick-disconnect' crimped-on connectors.

Batterie and brake light stays on changed new batterie new alternator car ran fine the next day the car would not crank


There is obviously have a drain on the battery. You have a faulty break light pedal switch causing the lights to stay on, or your turn signal switch is bad. your brake lights run through, the turn signal switch too. That could also cause the problem.

Brother Mark, changing the battery with a new one being done won't make the light go out, as you noticed. Light is still on so you changed the alternator. Good, but the battery light is STILL on. This only means that the charging circuit from the alternator is not working in the voltage regulator or the wiring is not connected properly to the alternator/regulator. A new battery will show over 13 to 13.5 volts not connected. An old battery will still show 12 volts and still be weak or bad. After connected and engine running, the system will show at least 14 volts because alternator/regulator is working properly, using a voltmeter/load tester connected to the battery. If after replacing the battery and alternator it is still reading 12 to 13.5 volts, it is not working and the light will stay lit on the dash. You may have purchased a faulty alternator if the system tests out this way. Have your system checked with a volt meter or load tester bit be sure all the connections are proper and clean.

Check your manual for what the battery light indicates. It is just a general light for the electrical....not always the battery.

Battery light stays


You have a short circuit somewhere that is draining the battery and making the alternator work that much harder. If the battery and alternator check out, it is most likely a short circuit in the starter solenoid. Try that and see if it solves it.

Have someone check the charging system on the truck. The light comes on when the alternator is not charging the battery.
Could be a wiring problem between the alternator and the battery.

Battery and brake indicator light stays on after start


When the lights are on check the battery voltage. Should be 13.0 to 14.5. If you unplug the connector on the alternator when the lights are on, do they go off?
