Question about 1997 GMC Suburban

Battery light stays on in 97 gmc

Three days ago I replaced one of the batteries in my 97 gmc turbo diesel as it wouldn't hold a charge and I also replaced the s-belt. This morning, the battery light came on and the charging gauge stayed at mid-point for the first time ever. Should I have replaced both batteries at the same time or is there another problem?

Battery light probably means low output from the alternator. You can have it checked at your local parts store. Hope this helps!

When your battery light comes on it is telling you that your ALTERNATOR is not charging your battery! So you need to replace the alternator.

You can verify that it is bad by taking the car or just the alternator to an auto parts store and having them test it for you for free.
