Alternator is not charging, if you got a reman it should be under warranty and if a shop put it in they should be able to test for free

You mean the chargeing light is still on .
It depends on what happened to make you replace the ALT .and battery in the first place. I don't know what happened but something did .
You need to test the chargeing system with the vehicle running.You will need a volt meter set to 20 volts DC scale you can get this for under 5 $ touch the black probe to the negitive teraminal on top of the battery and the same for the red top battery .You should read at least 14 volts if the ALT is chargeing the battery .
If not you likely fried what is called a fuseable link witch is basicaly reistance wire its like a fuse it burns out if over loaded.
Tipically you can find these wires running from the red terimial post wire that connected to the posivite side of the battery .
This would cause this problem if I read your problem correctly .
Or you could try this to find if you have a dead short something drawing the battery down with no key in it at all .
Disconnect the negitive battery cable engine off switch not on no key in .At the same 20 DC volt scale go from the posivite side of the battery to ground the engine block would be fine .If you read voltage you have a dead short that will kill the battery

My battery and brake waring light came on so i put a new battery in but the lights wont go out .how do you clear them.i have a 2007 nissan murano


The battery light doesn't mean you need a new battery it means that the battery charging system is faulty, that is the alternator and the voltage regulator, the lights are on because the system voltage is low, they will not turn off until the charging system problem is diagnosed and repaired.

New battery new alternator new belt battery light still comes on?


"Lights" are warning signals but you shouldn't trust 100% on lights. Take you car to a service where they have proper testing equipment to check your battery, alternator and scan your car's computer, it it has one, to get proper diagnostics.
Some time ago I had crazy "lights" turning on after having intalled a new battery and it was a loose cable.

You may have overlooked the importance of the GROUND for the engine. Make sure the grounds on the batteries are clean and tight and also the ground from the battery to the engine block AND the frame of the truck.

Engine light and battery light


No, and a new battery may not cure the battery light being on. A low or no charge condition will turn the red battery light on, a bad battery will not. A low charge condition could have turn the check engine light on. I would have it checked before I would start replacing parts.

Truck won't start, new battery, lights keep flashing


Sometimes the new battery is not 100% charged. Put it on a charger or jump start the car, the alternator should then charge up the battery.
