Son said battery was dead so I went and bought a new battery, but the battery light came on again got to work stopped the car and restarted with no problem but battery light won't go off??HELP
-sound like you're already replace the battery. did you...?
-If so it's okay. Looks like the problem is the alternator no charging.
-Here is the basic way to test by yourself.
-Turn on the car, let it run to normal idle then Use ohm meter to check power at battery terminal. If you get 12.5 or below. the problem is the alternator. Or take it to auto zone to check for you.

major suspect here is a bad ground... you likely loosened or compromised it when at headlamp bucket area.. remove battery again and check for its negative side to be secure adn all otehr wiring there to be clean and secure..good luck and advise

Likely, you have a damaged engine bearing. When there is a problem there it will turn oil pressure light on because bearings keep the pressure inside the crankshaft...It may stop as the bearing overheats and binds, then loosens up a bit allowing a re-start when it gets cooler. Battery sounding dead is likely because the engine is locking up and too difficult for starter to turn.
At this point, it is not a do-it -yourself project ...either you need a lower end rebuild or engine replacement.

Does it die coming to a stop or die when driving. Will it restart if holding down on gas pedal a little? May be carbon on throttle body. Bad crank sensor will cause this also. Doesnt always set a code. Loss of fuel pressure will cause this with no code.

Very first thing you need to do is install a mechanical pressure gauge on there to verify what you see on your gauge. If the actual pressure is low, then it's time to start looking inside the engine. If not, then you need to trace out the electrical problem but will know the engine is safe.
