Question about Cars & Trucks
I also changed out my alternator battery will charge but after sitting for a day it's to weak to start my truck. this is on a GMC Sierra all electric and it's a 06'
You have a drain somewhere in the truck or a bad battery. Take the battery to an autoparts store and have them test it for free. If the battery is good, you have a drain. Make sure you aren't leaving anything plugged in to the power outlets. Most GM outlet are constant and will still draw power if you leave cellphone/accessories plugged in.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you
have the battery charged. It can be an indication of a weak battery or a faulty
alternator. If the battery light still on after charging then the problem will
surely be on the alternator itself. If that's the case the alternator should be
replaced to resolve the problem.
You may try to reset it to by removing the positive battery
connector, letting it sit for at least 5mins. then reconnect it again. This
will reset the system and can get the battery light off.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
