Besides the gen, there's a voltage regulator that can act up. Have the system tested.

Take your gen off and have it tested by a local auto shop, Autozone does it for free. May need to be replaced.

SOURCE: My gen light just came on in my dodge 1500 what

The alternator most likely is failing or it has failed already and it should be removed and tested to be certain that the problem is with the alternator and not in the wiring or the PCM, and check out in the fuse/relay junction box in the engine compartment for any fuse that says "ALT" or "CHRG" and be sure that the fuse is good.

Vw 1970 beatlegenlight stays on


Good guess. It's pretty old, the gen may need rebuilding. Check the battery terminals, and the battery ground to the car, it could be corroded after all these years.

Gen light stays on gen test good


A bad battery ground can trigger that lite. Have both the terminals cleaned and tightened. The large wire going to the alternator can corrode, too. Check it out.

Battery won't stay charged


You say your test light was hooked from the negative terminal of the battery to the chassis? This is correct?
If so you don't have a short you have an open circuit.
You will have a bad ground somewhere between the battery and the engine or between the the engine and the body. Trace your grounds.
If you need more help leave a messege in "add comments" and I will help you along.

Charging problem


check the module on the firewall where the wires connect using a circuit light. Also check for burnt fusible links and wires connecting the battery, module, and alternator. A grounding power wire is most likely the culprit.
