A discharged battery could have caused this problem,you must have left accessories or lights on...if your battery is working well then it must be the starter...

Its your starter or starter selenoid. If you can reach the starter, try tapping on it with a hammer or something that can reach. While your tapping it have someone inside the car keep trying to start it. This might be a temporary fix, but it will get you going. Please rate thank you

Check the wiring and connectors going to the alternator. It appears you have a bad connection or broken wire - that would cause intermittent flashing of the alternator light or a steady glow, depending on how bad it is. Pay special attention to the alternator output wire going to the battery - you may not have a clean, solid connection to the new terminal.
As an aside, a leaking seal around a battery post can cause significant deterioration of the terminal connections in a few days. After several bad experiences, I always apply a counter-torque to the battery terminal with one hand while I tighten the terminal clamp bolt with a wrench in the other hand. The counter-torque keeps the wrench from applying force to the battery post and cracking the seal. Since I started that practice, I've had very little trouble with terminal corrosion.

Charging is sufficient you want 2 volts above battery, for that dash to be on there will be a terminal on the alternator that is not connected it is a single wire you will need to make sure that it is connected,the terminal have tendency to break off and sometimes people who put the alternator on forget to put that terminal on they just dont see it it a wire by itself
