Erratic battery light flash.Battery is only 1 month old,and just had a brand new alt. put on,and all was good except it whined like a super charger,so Oreilly's refunded alt and labor.Put the other alt...

It's likely an issue with the power or ground wire.

Corrosion can make strands unable to carry voltage.

I suggest replacing the wiring.

I just changed the alt in 2003 escape bat light came back on after about a day and half

When you replaced the altenator did the belt tensioner move freely, did it have a lot of torque, did it go back by itself? If it doesn't keep enough tension this will cause the light to come on. Not spinning the altenator fast enough. Some times this will cause the belt to squeal, some times not.

Battery light comes on while driving in my 2003 ford escape but we tested the voltage and it is good on both the alternator and battery. What else could it be?

Check battery to motor and battery to body ground bolts for corossion, also check motor to body ground strap for corossion. Bad ground can cause all kinds of electrical gremlins

2003 ford escape, change battery

you may have to have the computer reflashed. Only the dealer can do that also. that is very bad for all electrical components in the car.
