Question about Cars & Trucks
The alternator and starter are about 10 months old, and the battery is about 8 months old. I took the battery out put it on a trickle charge, cleaned the terminals, checked the fuses and checked wires to and from the battery and the alternator for any obvious damage. I then hooked the battery back up and started the car, letting run for about 1 hr until it shut itself down.
If you know for a fact the alternator is working, the problem could be an open circuit between the alternator and battery.

Your car is equipped with a system called PASSKEY standard on all GM cars and light trucks, try the following procedure to reset the system, the battery being dead will trigger the system.
PASSKEY LOCKOUT RESET GM CARS 1999 UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the passlock system to recognize your key.

SOURCE: my battery light is on
Sounds like your voltage regulator is acting up, and at times will not let alternator voltage reach the circuit. At this point car stars drawing on battery alone (triggering battery light) and working until it is out of juice. Before you buy a new voltage regulator, make sure that its contact points on the alternator, and the plug from it to the vehicle circuit is clean, shiny and making good contact. These parts, due to their location tend to collect dirt and moisture, leading to an intermittent performance before they stop working completely.

SOURCE: Daughter called me ..car wont
it sounds like you have blown fuse to the Alternator.. I don't know what car you are talking about but they charging systems vary.. But if alternator isn't getting all the power it needs it won't charge. this should be checked.
