Why is battery light still on after replacing alternator


charge lights work from a current flow either from the battery to the alternator or from the alternator to the battery. the opposing current flows will put the light out when each unit has the same voltage . So if the light is still on after the alternator has been replaced there are 2 checks to do . Check that the alternator is in fact charging correctly (dc voltage as well as 14 volts and next check is to see if the battery is any good and that the terminals are clean and tight. Best have it checked out at an accredited auto electrical shop.

Is replacing an alternator belt the same as replacing the alternator


Well the alternator is driven by a belt. You should be able to look at the alternator and tell if it has been replaced by how clean it is.
